Return to Steampunk

I’ve been doing a lot of pirate activities lately after finally wrapping up the debut of the “Under the Sea” playhouse.

So, at last I’m posting pics from the photo shoot with three talented photographers, Wade Edwards, Ryan London, and Rod Wright, and the fabulous model, Dana Byrd. I also took some casual shots from my iPhone. I styled and provided some of my costume pieces and jewelry.

We started in the stairwell of an abandoned electrical building that is now being rehabbed, just north of downtown St. Louis. The following shots are mine:

We then moved upstairs and found a great old window for Dana to pose in.

I took a couple shadow shots at the window. I like how there’s just a hint of color here:

Just a note, for the most part, I don’t use any filters. I only crop my images. No other editing techniques were used. I like raw photos. 

We then went downstairs and found a couple of fun architectural items to have Dana pose with:

 I’ve picked my favorites of the other photographers that were there. They are featured here with their permission and may not be further reproduced without their permission.

Rod Wright  The color is just so rich here.

Wade Edwards  I love the dark, gothic look. It reminds me of the black and white portions of the Wizard of Oz.

Ryan London   I like the iconic look to this one.

Another antique styled piece, love it.

These gentlemen were all so talented. It was hard to pick favorites.

More steam adventures coming after the Big River Steampunk Festival in Hannibal, MO this weekend! But one last quick reminder, there’s a 50% off sale in the Etsy store with code SUMMER50 through Sept. 6.
