A few weeks ago I posted about the outstanding newly released internet series, The Underwater Realm, and as promised I'm back with the full behind the scenes look at the underwater photoshoot by amazing conceptual photographer, Benjamin Von Wong. He explains how he was able to accomplish the shoot in the pool and how he brought all of the elements together to create a wonderful behind the scenes image of the entire cast and crew at work.
If you go to Benjamin's blog post about the shoot you can find the full story including behind the scenes photos, a great lighting diagram and some amazing tips on how to prepare if you decide to attempt an underwater shoot. I think what I love most about the story is the fact that all Ben had to do is reach out and ask the people over at UWR if they would like to collaborate. It's a great lesson in: 'You'll never know unless you ask.'
