Upon entering one of Snap Shot Photo Booth’s mobile units, objects from its prop table in hand, you press a touchscreen that suddenly displays a live video of the booth’s inhabitants trying to huddle into frame. A countdown precedes the first photo, and, as you position yourself for the next shot, the screen flashes the crystalline image the booth’s 18-megapixel Cannon camera just snapped. Smudge-proof, waterproof, and bulletproof strips emerge from a high-definition Sony dye-sublimation printer eight seconds after the session wraps up.
Such is the Snap Shot Photo Booth experience, which accommodates clientele with open booths, enclosed booths that fit up to 10 guests, and an 8'x10' lounge unit which hosts up to 15. Photo-booth attendants oversee the shutterbug festivities and help ensure that each client receives all the perks of their packages, which can include digital copies of every picture taken, a keepsake scrapbook signed by visitors, or a number of add-on and layout options.
Shirley Compton’s eye for the unexpected is apparent from her photography portfolio, whether it’s in the serenity of a lighthouse peeking over a thicket of ocean grasses, the delicate curve of a flamingo’s neck, or the neon-green lettering of an industrial engineer’s class shirt. She brings this eye to her sessions with families, engaged couples, and graduating seniors and then to her studio, where she edits the day’s shots into pleasing pictures.
Desired Focus Photography gives amateur shutterbugs the skills to capture images of children, sporting events, or wildlife and nature. Led by Sarah Kobunski, the studio offers an extensive collection of classes that break down the minutia of digital cameras and their sundry parts. Students peek through the lens and learn to manipulate lighting and visual composition.
