Irwin Wong’s New Year’s Greetings

09 Januar, 2014

Verfasst von: Fredrik Franzén

New Year’s Day postcards are a big thing in Japan. But Tokyo-based photographer Irwin Wong took it further than most, bringing his entire team, a horse and a bunch of B1 off-camera flashes out in the forest.

There is a perfectly fine explanation for the horse. The Chinese zodiac has a cycle of 12 years, and each year is represented by an animal. Next year it’s the year of the horse.

There is also reason for Irwin’s choice of flash, as having a battery-powered, cordless flash such as the B1 helps a lot when you’re out in the wilds.

The behind-the-scenes video shows us pretty much the entire process. It starts with the car trip to the location. Then the team meets the horse and do their makeup. After that they set up their gear, including B1 off-camera flashes, a Hasselblad H5DRFi softboxes and Zoom Reflectors.

The final shots can be found below, and you’ll find even more of Irwin’s work at his website.
