V37: Steampunk School Picture Day

Last Saturday Chris and I spent the afternoon snapping photos of the local Steampunk club, “High Desert Steam.”  We had access to the Victorian train cars stationed at Victorian Square, in Sparks, and had a lot of fun inside and out.

The vintage cameras came out for the day – my 1940s Brownie, 1950s Zeiss Icon, and Chris’ large format camera (vintage in spirit and technology) and 1950s Voigtlander Vito B.  We haven’t developed the film yet, but I’m hoping to have some cool black and white Steampunk photos to show you soon. 🙂  The real workhorse of the day, though, was the Nikon D300 dSLR.

Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite shots of the day…
