Commercial advertising photographer Tim Tadder has a thing for water, as seen in his “Fish Heads” series.  He calls his newest wet works “Water Wigs,” and while the basic concept is simple, capturing the moments is the tricky part.

The Bun

Start with a group of bald men Tadder called “awesome,” and hurl water balloons at their heads.

Photographing the watery explosions at various intervals, using a laser and sound to trigger the camera shutter, the trio of colors employed produce images that are both “arresting and amusing,” Tadder says.

His personal favorites are “The Don King,” “The Conquistador,” “The Jesus” and “The Friar.”
