Lauren and Papa - Christmas 2008

I was browsing my photostream on flickr and came across the photobooth images I did for Christmas 2008. We would normally do the group family photo, but I wanted to try something a little different.

I set up my camera on a tripod in front of a couch, and supplied a remote control to fire the shutter after 2 seconds. I set up a drape behind the couch to keep the background uniform. Everyone was instructed to take at least 3 or 4 photos of themselves, or sitting with someone else. They were encouraged to take more than that if they wanted to.

It was a hit with everyone. I think because they didn’t have me (or anyone) behind the lens of the camera. Everyone was free to do as they pleased. My daughter, Lauren, and my father were the craziest of the bunch for sure.

Check out the whole set of photos from 2008 here.

2008 was the first year of the tradition. I repeated this whole thing in 2009, and have yet to have time to process the photos. I will be doing that soon as there are some great ones of my father in the lot. Stay tuned.
