I went to a Steampunk shoot this weekend, with models dressed in several different themed outfits. The location was at a warehouse, so there were a few nice locations that could be used. While most of the other photographers took their shots inside, I thought the outside had more interesting settings. There was a rusted metal ramp, some corrugated metal walls, and even a storage area with a broken machine draped in tubes and wires (plus there was more room to move my light around outside).
I wasn’t able to shoot all of the models present, but the ones I did have an opportunity to work with were very nice. Sarah had an impressive collection of gears in her hair, while Aly had a really colorful corset. Crystal wore a long flowing dress and Tamara had a really eye-catching black and white outfit which contrasted really nice with one of the white metal walls.
Even though I didn’t have a chance to take as many pictures as I’d hoped, it was still a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to the next themed shoot.
