What would have happened if someone as smart as Tony Stark had lived during the Victorian era? He’d probably have been the forefather of steampunk and revolutionised the world. Or, that’s what he’d say in his own words anyway.
In this article, I’m featuring a series of photos based on a steampunk version of Iron Man. This shoot involved experimenting with various angles and playing around with the light settings for my camera.
Steampunk is a fascinating genre that combines Victorian aesthetics with dystopian themes. From an artistic perspective, cogs, brass and metal are common tropes and this provides the opportunity for some stunning backdrops and scenes. Photography Fables is going to regularly feature steampunk photos and a collection I enjoyed experimenting with recently involved a steampunk skull that I’m going to refer to as Steampunk Terminator.
