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.
