Moody Lamplight

Shot late at night without flash under a very old gas lamp style street lamp – the abscence of anything except shades of yellow and brown make for natural sepia. Might have to lose that lace to the left I think it distracts the eye from Rebecca. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Start Wearing Purple

Purple Charlie II

Yes, he really was this purple – not much work done here except to desaturate the background to make him pop even further. Willy Wonka eat your heart out. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Ringmaster Fro

Again, no flash, just wall lamps – perfectly placed to light up Lee’s fro. A perfect ringmaster tache completes an excellent look. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Pipe Overlord

I’ve got some interesting HDR shots of this chap, but I like the expression here as if he has been disturbed in the middle of his smoke. Amazing detail on the armour from Liam AKA The Steampunk Overlord. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Steam Punch

Ok, slightly odd pose for a couple to take – but it was their idea! He is wearing a Hellboy arm steampunked up and the steam was provided in the lowest tech way possible – two chaps with pipes laid on the ground blowing smoke from just out of shot – all in camera, thanks guys!

JuJu II

Steampunk takes many forms – some of them undead voodoo priestesses – this shy retiring wall flower needed no encouragement to strike a suitable pose. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Red & Jack

Hood & Jack

Jack Union Monster Hunter meets little red riding hood – or sneaks into her shot if you prefer. Perhaps he was hunting the Wolf? Either way, love the expressions and colour. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Wacky Racer

Wacky Racer

The sheer glee on this chaps face as he races his Wacky Racer in dead last place can’t be beat – a bit of sepia and panning for blur and it’s done. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

The Wedding Party

The Wedding Party

The happy couple in white in the centre certainly have some interesting friends – shot in front of Lincoln castle – way too much vignette and a dash of sepia. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set

Chapel Stare

Impero London provided the amazing leather jacket for this shot – absolutely beautiful and the brown/yellow colour combination seems to work well as does the faraway look on Rebecca’s face. Shot at Steampunk Asylum 2011, UK. Lots more shots can be found in the Flickr Set
