Photo Booth

I just finished reading American Photobooth by Nakki Goranin. It was pretty interesting. Now I’ll have to go home and dig out my one and only photobooth photo from when I was a kid. I can’t say that I recall ever using a photobooth during my teenage years. I had my own camera since I was about twelve years old so the idea of a photobooth never came up at least not that I remember.

There was one at the wedding reception in March and that is what got me thinking about it. I had loads of fun taking photos in that thing and taking photos of people taking photos in it. I probably ruined more than a few people’s photos by firing my flash at the same time that they were taking their photos. Oh well. 😉

  1. Photobooth photos were all the rage in the early 70’s. I always wanted a strip of them. Once, while we were dating, Rick and I squeezed in the booth together and we did the kissy, kissy shots. I didn’t like how they turned out, so I let him keep them. I bet he still has them in his dresser drawer. I’m sure I’d laugh to see them today. Now, I’ll go read the article.

    In our mall I noticed a hurricane simulator this winter. I’d love to take the grandkids up to try it out and photograph their faces if the camera were able to detect them up in a hurricane.
