Fashion and fire blended the Von Wong way

By dpreview staff on Apr 2, 2013 at 21:18 GMT

Benjamin Von Wong posted photos and a video from his impressive Paris photoshoot that combined fire, fireworks, and models into some dramatic imagery. 'Since we were messing around with consumable effects,' said VonWong in his blog, 'each time we started a burn I had to be ready to constantly change up my camera settings to be able to compensate for the lighting conditions.'

VonWong joined pyrotechnician Andrey DAS and designer Virginie Marcerou in Paris for the shoot, inviting anyone to attend, resulting in around 60 visitors throughout the evening.

We’ve posted the video from his blog that gives some of the flavor of the shoot. Proceed to his site to see more about the difficulties he encountered, including the very cold temperatures, and the techniques and equipment he used to overcome them. (via FStoppers)

Normally there would be 50+ loud-mouth blowhards on here dissing these images,, but now the actual artist has turned up on the thread, they're keeping pretty quiet. Now that's funny.

Speaking of blowhards! We were praising the artist well before he came on here, so take your troll elsewhere, thanks.

Now go get a dictionary,, look up the difference between 'normally' and 'actually' ,, there's a good boy.

Great work, as Elements always have been the best background (as well as theme, I shoud add). Excellent idea excellently executed.

The photo reminds me of the Mustafaar scenes from The Revenge of the Sith.

This looks like the cover of a romance novel or video game to me.
