Photographers in the News: Photo Booth
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
I have a fascination with the Photo Booth. I have a whole collection of Photo Booth art and even though I believe in ‘living simply’ if I had a monstrously large house with a gigantic entryway I would totally buy this authentic boardwalk photo booth for the bargain price of $11,000.
I do not however have a monstrously huge house or a large entryway but I do love the idea of getting people’s pictures alla photo booth style as they enter my home over the Holiday season (and in other peoples homes too – Mom, watch out, I’m bringing this to your house too).
So here’s what I’ve done. I have my little Nikon point and shoot on a tripod. I have set it to continuous shoot for 4 frames. I have the timer set up so that upon clicking the “go” button (that’s a highly sophisticated term I picked up from my three year old niece) the 4 frames will be captured after an 8 second pause. I set the pictures to black and white. I have a bench for people to squeeze into and some pashmina scarves in a variety of colors, a boa and some hats. People sit on the bench, grab the prop of choice, click the go button and abra-cadabra photo booth art in the making. Then on new years day when I have nothing to do and the holiday movie extravaganza has passed I will get them all together and print them out and mail them on out to cheers in the new year.
Will you set up a Faux Photo Booth in your house? I’d love to hear about it! I think these will be the perfect shots for my scrapbook to set up the holiday scene.
