Steampunk Tendencies

Nancy at Overbury Ink has steampunk tendencies and she needed some shots for an upcoming feature on her work as a writer and blogger exploring the steampunk genre.

What is steampunk?

Definition: Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s. Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used – usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain – that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy.
With my subject suitably attired in steampunk garb, we set up in an old barn with my wireless strobes. I wanted to give the shots an ethereal charm, something that says “I am delicately neo-victorian, but I can still kick your ass!”
