We have featured Benjamin Von Wong and his amazing projects many times here on SLR Lounge. Today, Von Wong steps away from his usual shenanigans for a commissioned project from the team at SmugMug.
The idea here was that SmugMug wanted some cool black and white portraits to hang in their company gym. This is Von Wong we are talking about though, so simple B+W portraits are out of the question. But you might be surprised to hear, it was a simple DIY $20 rain machine that gave this project the epic feel.
Over on this blog, Von Wong has shared his 7 tips for creating epic portraiture like this. It is a really insightful look at the sort of things to think about if you are going to be trying to meet a clients needs in this genre. I highly recommend checking it out.
Here are the images created for this shoot. Quite impressive, as we’ve come to expect from Ben.
