Need A Free Source For Unique Models? VonWong: Costume Parties Are The Answer

If you're like most of us photographers out there, you don't always have a budget for a costume designer and money for a nice wardrobe for models. For paid projects, this would be covered, but for personal endeavors, the budget simply is too much for most shooters to afford. Ben VonWong has solved this problem by learning to approach people who have already done the work for us.

With Halloween just a few short weeks away, take this opportunity to stock up on cheap makeup and accessories, not to mention finding deals on costumes. VonWong has been able to find groups of costumed individuals and provide some tips on working with them to get some really interesting portraits on a budget. Read more about his process here on his blog.

What I like best about Von Wong's videos: simple, relatively short yet informative.
