Steampunk Inspired shoot
We recently held a workshop at the studio with a fantastic model Carla Monaco with a steampunk theme. http://www.carlamonaco.co.uk/
I used a theatrical backdrop and tried to give a dramatic look to the image.
The steampunk theme and styling was obtained by using period clothing by Phaze Clothing
All lighting used was by Bowens http://www.bowensdirect.com/
Photography Art Direction Eric Murphy ABIPP LSIFGP www.ericmurphy.co
Hair and make up Maxine Aire
Lighting diagram below shows large softbox with waffles to give soft directional light from the left of camera. A 500 head with standard reflector and medium grid pointed onto backgound set at minimum power to just give detail in backdrop, orange gel attached. I also used a head with grids pointing at the back of the model to give separation from backdrop.
