A further exploration into Water Weirdness
We just finished shooting a new project we call Water Wigs. The concept is simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different. We found a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals. The result a new head of of water hair! 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. 

Our favorites are "The Don King," "The Conquistador," "The Jesus" and "The Friar." I am uploading the images today around the web. Please share and comment, and I will try to get to all the questions I can! This was fun, complex, technical, and totally worth exploring more. There are much larger images with more detail on our website; check them out at
