Wanted posters, pianos, and saloon atmosphere backdrop sepia-toned photos of couples dressed in cowboy hats and frontier-era clothing
Old Time Photo Studio
Waltzing into the saloon with a Jack Daniels bottle in hand and two gals on his arm, the gunslinger stoically steps up to the bar and passes a pianist who stops serenading the regulars with his jangly tunes when he feels the outlaw’s presence. Though the sights and sounds of the old west sound like an atmosphere too seedy for families, Old Time Photo Studio invites kin to play the part of their favorite western figures at photo shoots within a frontier town gallery. For each shoot, participants don the garb of cowboys, bandits, and saloon girls before arming themselves with toy guns or the linguine lassos left over from spaghetti westerns. Photographers preserve every sepia-tone shot on CD, and patrons select their favorite images to keep as prints.
