In a recent series of photos called Water Wigs, L.A. photographer Tim Tadder captured impressive shots of bald men getting pounded with water balloons on the head while lit with triad colors. The water flows around their shiny heads looking like their missing hair. The technical aspects of the photos is quite tricky. Capturing the difference between a balloon exploding in the right place and the wrong place comes down to just milliseconds.

Switzerland-based photographer Fabian Oefner must have a lot of patient. In his photo series Iridient he explores the art of bubble-bursting using high-speed flash photography. It took him a couple of hundred shots to capture the moment when the bubble ruptures. For the bubbles he used a funnel of a sugar dispenser to create the soapy air pockets, to achieve the famous spectrum of colors for what bubbles are known for, he placed lights around the bubbles from every possible angle. Gorgeous!
