Fashionably Steampunk

Model: Ava Von Hart

Wardrobe: Meschantes Corsetry

Hair: Jen Mathias Djin

Make-up: Lisa Parkinson


Strobist: Lots and lots of lights, because that wrinkled white muslin just needs to go away.


Bare AB 800 behind the white muslin backdrop. Main light is an AB 800 in a 64-inch Soft Silver PLM, between 7 and 8 o'clock. Fill is twin speed lights in a 51-inch Extreme Silver PLM with diffusion cover, at about 4 o'clock. Addition fill provided by a 43-inch silver reflector propped up at about a 20-degree-angle on a backdrop bag at 6 o'clock. Yet more fill provided by a snooted speed light firing at the reflector from about 4 o'clock.


Hair light comes from another speed light in a Lumodi 14-inch silver beauty dish boomed above the mode. The final light is a speed light in a small soft box on a ground stand at about 3 o'clock, firing at the background to take care of a dark spot.
