Dad Photoshops His Premature Baby Doing "Manly Things" And The Results Are Both Adorable And Hilarious
One can always get creative with their skills. This one dad got super creative with his photoshop skills when it came to his premature son's newborn shoot. In an effort to make the shoot more memorable, dad decided to photoshop his son in a number of situations and the result was hilarious and adorable at the same time.
#1 Putting expert photoshop skills to best use.
Matt MacMillan is a proud dad who has decided to put his expert photoshop skills to best use by putting his son in various hilarious photoshopped pictures. Matt's son Ryan was born 9 weeks early than his birth and the baby weighed less than 3 pounds. While the couple was not expecting their child to be born premature but they definitely didn't give up on the newborn photoshoot, just like the one they had when their daughter was born two years ago.
#2 Little Ryan ready for a busy day at office.
Matt decided a photoshoot to portray his son doing things the manly way, the point here is to prove that premature babies are not weak in any way.
#3 Enjoying his holidays with his favorite pastime.
Matt says each photo in the new setting took only 15-2 minutes as most of the work was for editing and photoshop. "First, I had to make props and find outfits for most of the pictures," he explained. "The next step was setting up the scene, framing the shot, arranging props, and setting up the lighting where appropriate."
#4 Listening to music while doing house chores.
Though there were some shots that proved to be harder than the other. For example, the one in the gym setting, here Ryan working on his bench-press technique is just one example of Matt have to get pretty creative.
"For this one, I made a rig that hung from the ceiling," he explained. "It mounted the camera and also held the barbell above Ryan so all he had to do was grip it rather than hold it up."
#5 Ugh...the car is not starting again.
Matt explaining his photoshop skills here, "After I got the pictures of Ryan, I would take some shots of anything that he couldn’t actually hold, like the ax swinging or the fish on the fishing line. 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."
#6 In a hurry to reach to work on time.
Ryan's preemie photoshoot proved to be a hit among the public when Matt shared the pictures on his Instagram, "People seemed to love the photos – there was a lot of disappointment when the series came to an end," Matt recalled.
Each one of Ryan's carefully crafted photos scored hundreds, sometimes thousands of likes, and Matt's Instagram has now grown to over 10,000 followers.
#7 All set to chop some woods.
In some pictures, the Internet voiced their concern over Ryan's safety where Matt cleared that it was all photoshop and nothing more. "Most people found them funny but there were always a few people that feared for Ryan’s safety," Matt said. "I always explained how the 'danger' all came from Photoshop and he was always being held and was never in any harm."
#8 Having fun with batteries and his magical photoshop skills.
It's been almost a year to Matt's amazing photoshoot for his son Ryan. And for now, Matt ponders, "I’m curious to see what Ryan thinks of them 18 years from now when he’s actually grown up."
