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!
President Barack Obama proclaims June 2015 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. We are proud to work with companies such as the Anti-violence Project and The Center for Anti-violence education. One thing is for sure, we are all happy to see this progression and will always be supporters.
A great article on NPR, Son Lux's "Change Is Everything" music video is some of the best stop motion we have ever seen. This reminded us of the stop motion clips we created for airbnb at the Sundance Film Festival.
The Director, Nathan Johnson and the Producers, The Made Shop took stop motion to a whole new level. Two long weeks, over 4,000 frames, and many sore fingers later. This Masterpiece was created. We cannot wait for our next stop motion booth, does anyone sense a challenge brewing?
The Booth joins The Huffington Post for their 10th anniversary celebration!
The site launched on May 9, 2005, when blog sites were not considered as a news medium. Arianna Huffington, the Huffington Post's founder and editor-in-chief, said that her site proved to be a credible medium. Today the site reaches over 200 million unique visitors per month, and that is something worth celebrating!
The Booth joined Eleven Madison Park at their Annual Kentucky Derby party and as usual, we all had a blast. Neil Patrick Harris photo bombing a group and then showing off a glamorous pose. Can you say legen... wait for it... dary! Even Aziz Ansari was goofing around with our giant sunglasses prop. Bring it on Preakness!
We had the honor of being a part of Ilana and Matthew's elegant wedding. Planning a wedding is a lot of work, it's great to see a couple receive acknowledgment. Theknot.com posted an article about the fabulous day and tagged all the vendors, including The Booth! Not only did Ilana and Matthew create memories for a lifetime, but their guests left our booth with 4x6 prints they can cherish for years to come.
Even The booth was wagging their tails this weekend.
Sigurjon and Justin spent the weekend with Barkbox, the doggie product subscription service, turning cute dogs into glamourous superstars!
Our "puparazzi" coverage on the red carpet captured costumes, treats, and of course, the cutest pups in the world. We absolutely loved being part of the 1st Annual Kentucky Derpy, and can't wait to come back next year!
Want a free headshot? Just get arrested in Santa Barbara, California to be featured in their exclusive mugshot headshot booth! What makes the pictures so good compared to all other mugshots we've seen? The police department rigged 3 long fluorescent bulbs similar to a Kino Flo to create soft, full lighting on both sides of the subject. Using a Canon DSLR doesn't help either!
Today's historical post features a mysterious man that was in a photo booth picture for roughly 30 years of his adult life. To date, more than 450 of these pocket-sized images have resurfaced and are in the possession of museums, historians and antique collectors around the world. The images are believed to start in the 1930's and although many have tried, no one has yet to identify this photo booth fanatic.
Last month, The Booth joined The Africa Center for a historical throwback photo booth. The inspiration for this photo booth came from Malian photographer Malick Sidibé who photographed members of his village in his homemade studio that we recreated.
