Von Wong Shoots With Continuous Light
Using fluorescent light tubes and a small flash into some transparent cloth, Ben Von Wong delivers with some beautiful images. He shot these photos in collaboration with a hairstylist and makeup artist to compete in the Contessa hair dressing award. As usual, Von Wong didn’t just stop at creating some awesome images, because he also supplied us with a great behind the scenes video.
The fluorescent light tubes came from his DIY VonStudio, and they created some amazing catch lights in the model’s eyes. For the bokeh in the background he used a small hot shoe flash fired into some translucent fabric. I have never shot with continuous light, but I am seeing more and more people doing the fluorescent light thing, and I am becoming more and more intrigued with trying it for myself. The final results of Ben’s shoot are wonderful.
