How to Properly Light a Black and White Photo Shoot

You may remember photographer Benjamin Von Wong from last week’s behind-the-scenes video of his photo shoot with the band The Agonist. In that video he showed you how he put together a very creative, cinematic composite shot that really stood out from other band photos. In this video, Benjamin runs you through the lighting challenges unique to black and white photography, and how he chose to overcome them.

    Great work Benjamin! However, petapixel, the title of this article should be something like “One way to light a B&W Photo shoot”

    I like the images and the technique, but I don’t see anything there that is particular to black and white imagery.
