Conjuring Inspiration: BTS of the 'Bringing Dreams to Life' Photoshoot

Benjamin Von Wong has finally wrapped up his long and productive European tour, Von Wong Does Europe. The very first shoot that he was able to do was also ironically the last to be published and for good reason. It will blow you away. Taking over 60 hours to retouch Ben collaborated with talented retouching guru, Chester van Bommel



 If you want to learn more about how they put the entire image together and how a little bit of creativity and perseverance can push you to do greater things;  go over to Von Wong's blog post: Bringing dreams to life through retouching. He goes over how he lit the scenes with behind the scenes photos and how he shot them knowing that heavy compositing would be involved.


You can also find Ben on his Facebook page and his Twitter.

Love the image and the bts video was great, Some good advice there about people wanting you for your vision and not for your technical ability.

What a great video, and a couple of incredible artistic pieces that have come out of this work! The photo and retouching of Chester's portrait is so majestic, and the photo and retouching of Benjamin and his assistant's portrait is very fun and humorous! Well done.
