V37: Steampunk School Picture Day

Feb 6, 2012 4 comments

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...

High Desert Steam.  And yes, that is a mummified cat.

  1. Fabulous, what a rabble! No automation would be safe with them!

  2. Didn't I just see that mummified cat at the Edwardian Ball in SF?

    1. Liz and Warren were there, along with Mummified Cat, so yes, you did see them!

  3. My brother suggested I might like this website. He was entirely right. This post actually made my day. You cann't imagine simply how much time I had spent for this info! Thanks!
