Pyrotechnics & Capoeira Mix for a Stunning Daytime Photo Shoot

By Jules Ebe on September 28th 2013


Pyrotechnics meets the martial art of Capoeira in an abbey in Belgium.

Von Wong and DAS has teamed together for some pretty phenomenal collaborations that mixes fire, fine art, and creative photographic techniques for inspiring results.

Fire, as an element is extremely fun to play with but unless used properly, it becomes a mere effect rather than a storytelling element. Since we were trying to feature capoeira artists at work, we wanted to find a way to illustrate motion and movement using fire arcs.

Usually fire is shot at night, so Von Wong and DAS found themselves troubleshooting a daytime photoshoot featuring a lot of movement and flames.
