Xenophon Gala Photo Booth

The “boof” was a huge hit again at this year’s Gala, held at the amazing Blackhawk Auto Museum, who claims to have the World’s Best Car Collection. Having seen the collection, it’s hard to argue with that.

I made a couple of small changes to my photo booth this time. I used a somewhat smaller rig on a single C-stand and added a little music, which made the gear more manageable, and loosened up participants even more. (It may also help to explain the huge popularity of the microphone props.) This year’s Gala featured a rockin’ 50’s theme. As you can see, everyone who stepped into the booth had a blast.

Merry Christmas

In case you’re wondering, I created thedude & Kelly action figures in Cinema4D and composited them into a photograph of our fake tree with PhotoShop.

I just have to follow up with this favorite Photobooth shot of sister-in-law Jill showing her best holiday spirit.

Halloween Photo Booth

I’m getting better and better results from the booth. Not just because of tweaks to the hardware, but also due to the fact that my audience at work knows how to get better pictures out of it. (Get closer! Lean in a bit!) And although I can fit 10 or 12 people in the booth, I’m in love with solo shots.

I have two more tweaks in mind for the next time I set up the boof. A second camera remote will allow me to take additional pictures, and a little music will put my subjects more into the mood. Stay tuned for an even better booth!


This is not your mama’s photo booth

It’s difficult to pick favorites from yesterday’s party at work.

James Bond Gala

Saturday’s James Bond themed Xenophon Gala was taylor-made for the photo booth!

I’m absolutely loving the results, but I do have one issue with the photo booth. The images that come out of it are so dazzling that they make the rest of my shots look boring.

The most amazing thing is how easy it is to get these results! If you’re thinking a lot of effort must go into making these images, you’d be wrong. They come out of the photo booth rig requiring almost no post-processing. A tiny bit of color enhancement, a little vignette, sometimes a slight crop, and… we’re done.

One day I need to whip out a portrait lens and try it out with this lighting rig. Could it be even more amazing? We’ll have to see…
