Dad Photoshops His Preemie Son Doing ‘Manly Things’ And The Result Is Hilarious

Having a preemie can be a lot of work and very worrisome for some parents who are concerned that their child may not make it. But, there are also parents who turn their love for their child into fun and love. Like, Matt, who wrote into BoredPanda about his recent project with his son, Ryan.

Matt tells BP that when his daughter was born, he had done a similar photoshoot, but since his son was a preemie, they thought it would be funny to photoshop him doing “adult things.”

Each shoot took about 15-20 minutes. Most of the work is in the setup and editing. First, I had to make props and find outfits for most of the pictures. The next step was setting up the scene, framing the shot, arranging props, and setting up the lighting where appropriate. Some of the setups were elaborate – like for the benchpress photo. For this one, I made a rig that hung from the ceiling. 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.

The result? Hilarious and adorable!
