44-year-old IT director, photographer, and digital artist John Wilhelm has created a fantastic series of photo manipulations where he digitally inserts his three adorable daughters (Lou, Mila, and Yuna) into crazy situations. You can view more from the collection and check out behind-the-scenes photos on his 500px and Facebook pages.

Here is what John said about his manipulation techniques during an interview with Bored Panda:

“Most of my images are heavily manipulated but not all of them are compositions. If an image works straight out of the camera I just improve it (beauty retouching, cleanup, level corrections, sharpening, colors and tones, emphasize light, etc.). What I really love is to bring different images together to create something completely new,” John said, explaining his manipulation techniques.
