I have to say I don't really like the photo itself, I don't know I just don't like it, but, I do like the way it was taken, I have to say it is an amazing photography because of that, the angle, the way you set all lighting parameters, the zoom by itself, it's a very nice piece of work.
Victorian dress with clockwork hat, but doesn't slap the word "steam punk" on to it just to cash in on popular sub-genre. I like the color of it, too. A dark blue with a... I don't even know what to call it, a dull bronze, perhaps? Very nice!
We'll, both me and the photographer don't use photoshop or know very little about it. That's why I'm uploading these pictures here, they're free to use for other interested ones to train their skills ^^
I will take you up on that. Of course credit will be given. I'm going to put you into some amazing backgrounds. One area I'm trying to learn right now. Any chance you have the originals? A higher resolution would be nice but I'll work with whatever I have. SweeT!
