In the world(s) of fiction, fashion and art there are a varied sub-cultures that influence followers. One such influence gaining greater awareness and acceptance is the steam-punk movement. The steam-punk movement has been shaped by scientific romance writers like Jules Vern, H.G. Wells and Mary Shelley. Adorned with brass clocks and cogs, a post apocalyptic Victorian meets the wild west may explain the style, but steam-punk for some may not be just a fad, but also a way of life. Within the steam-punk movement there are gorgeous clothes, fantastic mechanical devices, fantastical music arrangements and more, all adding up to amazing photography opportunities.
