Photographer Von Wong Shows How You Can Prepare for Even the Most Ambitious Projects [Part 1]

If you've kept up with what goes on in the photography world or even in the conservationist realm, chances are that you've come across at least one of Benjamin Von Wong's projects. Von Wong has recently strung together a few transcending projects that focus on conservation, raising awareness on environmental issues, and how we can make the world a better place. One of his most recent projects is focused on raising awareness of plastic pollution in the world. In part one of this video series, he shares his mindset and the preparation that goes into one of his shoots.

Drones have grown into a standard item to own not only for videographers, but also for many photographers. Most have used them to capture images from the sky or places hardly accessible otherwise. A few have played around with these small machines to light their subject in a unique way, just like our very own Patrick Hall did when lighting a lighthouse with a DJI Phantom and a Nikon strobe.

Rather hunting you could say, for the exact moment when I choose to fire away, just less dramatic.

The sequel to the BBC-produced nature documentary series, "Planet Earth II," released a few clips into the wild recently to promote its U.S. release in January.
