Los Angeles-based photographer Tim Tadder and crew decided to gather up a bunch of bald men and photograph them while hurling water balloons at their heads “to capture the explosion of water at various intervals.”
The result: Water Wigs!
We used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face.
We chose to work with triads of colors to create images that are arresting and amusing at the same time. We feel the color helps transform the water into some more and adds greater visual interest.
According to Tadder, “The Don King,” “The Conquistador,” “The Jesus” and “The Friar” are their favorites. I’d have to agree.
