The entire Booth team has a background in professional photography. We had the honor of working with One Medical Group and their amazing team. Originally, our gear was packed with a seamless backdrop but once the silver freight elevator caught the eyes of our team, there was a change of plans. Our team was able to make the adjustments needed and create a custom look using the surroundings, pretty cool right?

NASA’s New Horizons probe finally reached Pluto and its dwarf moon, Charon. After traveling 9 years and 3.6 billion miles, New Horizons took hundreds of images on Tuesday morning. With three cameras on board, the most impressive is "Ralph." A camera equipped with a 75mm lens at f/8.7, capable of capturing visible light and some infrared light. As New Horizons traveled away from the sun, temperatures drop causing materials to shrink. Lisa Hardaway, an engineer at Ball Aerospace in Colorado knew "Ralph" would have to be built almost entirely of one type of material.
“We actually built the mirrors and the chassis out of aluminum so that as they shrink, they would shrink together, to maintain the same focal length. We could do a reasonable test on Earth and still expect the same quality image,” Hardaway says.
Even the camera’s mirrors were made out of aluminum. To turn dull aluminum into mirrors, Ball sharpened it with diamonds. The lens was one of the few pieces of the camera that could be safely made out of glass.
A huge mission. An impressive camera. One set of historic photographs.
Mervyn O'Gorman was an accomplished English electrical and aircraft engineer. His interest in photography led him to become a pioneer of color photography. In 1913, O'Gorman composed the photographs below, today they are featured in many exhibitions around the world. Using the Autochrome Lumière process, he skillfully captured his daughter, Christina in a series of color photographs. The shallow depth of field was created by long exposures and a large aperture, a style many photographers appreciate. Our team enjoys taking on photographer inspired projects, O'Gorman may be our next one!
