Strike A Pose infuses parties with fun and flair, giving people an excuse to mug for the camera. It rents photo booths to large organizations such as Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Indiana University as well as private shindigs. Up to eight people at a time fill out the cozy structure, posing for the bright flash with props such as wigs, hats, or invisibility cloaks. The photos come cascading out of the printing machine, giving revelers a chance to look full into their own faces and marvel at how young they used to look.
The photo booth imbues parties with old-school fun as its modular design allows it to fit in even the most cramped settings, such as the living room of a house located in a shoe. Subjects select from a selection of wild props to spice up their photos while an onsite attendant keeps everything running smoothly. A Sony dye-sublimation printer cranks out pics in 12 seconds, instantly giving customers keepsake photos in black and white, sepia, or color.
Sherri Barber, preserver of gleaming smiles and curator of glossed memories, frames expressive portraits within her professional studio. Individual portrait sitters or beach-volleyball teams can show off their aptitude for staring intensely into the middle distance or grinning at nearby props as Sherri snaps shots for about 60 minutes. Once all personages have been fully documented, photographees can peruse a photo gallery, culling pictures spoiled by closed eyes or falling ceilings, then immortalizing the best shots in an 11”x14” print and two 5”x7”s.
