Finally, the last Steampunk Photo Shoot post from Bushnell Park. This post has one extra picture than the others, because I wanted to wrap things up here.

Here is a nice one of Kelley and I posing in front of the fountain looking super cool. By now the wind had let up a little and the sun was starting to make things a little easier for us. That is why I think that the fountain pictures came out especially nice. The colors were all really fantastic around us, even for late fall.

I think this is a nice dynamic shot. If you have been reading my earlier postings of photos from this shoot, you will see me talking about my strategies to look slightly off balance in an effort to get a dynamic shot. Well, I was certainly off balance here, but tried not to let my face show it. That nice wind that made that awesome line with my skirt also almost pushed me over.

This is another nice one for its density of detail. Look at all those things to look at!

A very epic shot in front of the fountain.

And finally, the perfect lens-flair shot. We got this one on our first try. It looks just like a movie poster to me. Thank you for reading!

The third installment of our steampunk photo shoot in Bushnell park!

I love this shot. I feel very glamourous in it and I loved that doorway because it shielded me from the wind and the sun and allowed me to actually pose with my face as well as my body. This is one of my favorite shots of my costume as well because everything is behaving and falling just where it is supposed to. I think the shadows are great, and the composition awesome.

This is a shot of Kelley’s behind. She spend a lot of time in her butterfly bustle, and wanted to be sure to document its wings.

Here is another cool shot from in front of that cool old wall. In this instance the wind was actually working in my favor to give me some movie-star hair. I also like that I managed to keep my eyes open. You may notice some differences between this costume and the same one which I wore to New York Comic Con. Here I decided to trade in my adventure boots and leg warmers for some heels to create a longer leg. It works better in some shots than others, but I do like the look.

Here is a fantastic shot of kelley crossing the fountain. Very glamourous, very colorful, and very well lit. More on the way!

Another set of photos from our recent steampunk photo shoot in Bushnell park. 

Again I want to remind everyone of the wind this day. This doorway was quite a place of refuge for us, where the wind could make our eyes water and our noses red a little bit less.

Not sure what I am attempting to do over by this wall here, but it is a cool looking wall, isn’t it?

We also found a lovely fountain to take pictures by which was also period accurate, just like the bridges and walls we are seen with.

Pretend walking around the fountain is harder than it looks. I wasn’t moving here, but I had to position my feet one in front of the other like I was walking like a lady. It gave the wind a much more toppley Shauna to push around. When posing, you always want to elongate and twist your body in seemingly unstable ways. In fact, the more off balance you look, the more dynamic and whimsical that picture will be. In my effort to look off balance, I think I almost fell into that fountain like four times. But my skirt looks awesome, doesn’t it?
