Tim Tadder is fast becoming one of my favorite commercial photographers with his highly imaginative photos like his Fish Heads series. Tim just finished another great new photo project called Water Wigs that takes water and high speed photography to a whole new level.

Tim rounded up some awesome bald guys and proceeded to throw or explode water balloons on them to create water wigs. He used laser and sound trigger to capture the images at the right moment. Lighting-wise, he used strobe lights gelled with triads of color to freeze the water motion and create the very colorful look to the image. Add the fantastic expressions of his models and the result is simply fantastic and quite original.

And even the captions are both hilarious and fitting, with names like “The Don King,” “The Conquistador,” “The Jesus” and “The Friar.”
