Proud Father Captures His Preemie Son Doing "Manly Things."
Once Matt was done taking the pictures of baby Ryan, he began to take pictures of the things that Ryan couldn't hold.
"I would take some shots of anything that he couldn’t actually hold, like the ax swinging or the fish on the fishing line," Matt explained. You see, it might look like Ryan is doing all of these crazy things, but it's actually just the fantastic magic of Photoshop!
Once he was done taking the photos, Matt still had plenty of work to do.
"After each shoot, I would comb through these hundreds of photos and choose the best ones. I then used Photoshop to remove myself from the pictures and combine the best parts of his body into a unified composite photo."
As cute as these photos are, they do make it seem like Ryan was put into some pretty dangerous situations.
Would the people of the Internet enjoy Matt's sense of humor and artistic approach? Or would they ignore the obvious and assume that Ryan was being put in harm's way.
Matt said that there some mixed opinions about his photos of Ryan.
“Most people found them funny but there were always a few people that feared for Ryan’s safety. I always explained how the “danger” all came from Photoshop and he was always being held and was never in any harm," stated Matt.
Matt received so much attention for his unique pictures that people were asking for more.
“People seemed to love the photos – there was a lot of disappointment when the series came to an end,” says Matt. Even though Matt is grateful that people enjoyed his work, he mainly did it for Ryan.
