Personal projects are often one of the best ways to try something new, something daring. That is exactly what Southern California-based commercial photographer Tim Tadder did with his hilariously bizarre portraits of people poking their heads underwater called Fish Heads.
From the look of the light and shadow, I am guessing that Tim must have have lit the scene with an underwater strobe or with a strobe outside an aquarium with the walls blacked out. What do you guys think?
Here are a couple more examples of Fish Head. By the way, anyone else feel like they’re seeing some of that T-1000 liquid metal from Terminator? No? Just me?
You can see more of the series on Tim Tadder’s Behance page. Thanks to Peta Pixel for picking this one up.

Tadder has always been active in sports, exploration, and adventure and believes that being familiar with shooting live action makes it easier to recreate the look for advertising shoots.
