Victorian Ladies and Trains
How not to photograph ‘Steampunk’. I was pretty stoked about a Steampunk event coming to town last week. Their aesthetic fascinates me and coupled with steam locomotives … what more could one ask for? One of the first things they teach you in photography pre-school is to make sure you have fully charged batteries. I was evidently napping during that lesson because just after I captured these ladies the little red battery thingy started blinking and two minutes later … that was it. Game over. No spares in the bag. Maybe next year.
However I was lucky enough to get some steam from a passing locomotive for the image below. Gotta look on the bright side.
