Breathtaking Fire Breathing Photos of DAS – Behind the Scenes Photography Video and Tutorial: Von Wong Does Europe Episode 1

By Pye Jirsa on June 25th 2012


When it comes to wicked concepts and excellent execution, Benjamin Von Wong is stepping into a class of his own. Which is why we were so excited to be the official sponsors of the Von Wong Does Europe Tour. Because we wanted to see what Ben could do if he had a month just to piece together concept shoots throughout Europe.

Well, the tour is over, and Ben and Erwan are hard at work in editing their images and creating wonderful BTSVs for you all to enjoy and learn from. Today, I am excited to say that we have the first of these Behind the Scenes Videos, an editorial shoot featuring the incredible artisan work of pyrotechnian DAS.

In this video, Ben walks us through his concept and shoot with DAS. Working with fire as an artistic medium presents many challenges in and of itself. Photographing fire presents a whole new set of challenges, check out Ben’s techniques in pulling of some truly amazing works of fire breathing art!
