Photographs transport people to an earlier time without the need to master quantum physics or pay the tolls associated with America's wormhole highways. Capture fleeting moments for future examination with today's Groupon: for $450, you get a three-hour Gem Package photo-booth rental from Southern Gem Photo Booths (a $900 value). Booths can be deployed to events within a 60-mile radius of New Orleans.
Southern Gem Photo Booths sends its moment-capturing enclosures to special events across the New Orleans area, allowing guests to print endless pictures of themselves and their friends. A friendly attendant sets up, tears down, and keeps watch over the booth as part of the three-hour Gem Package, ensuring that it is operational for the entire period, answering questions, and assisting photographees in complicated acrobatic poses. The 5'x5' booth, which holds up to 10 adult guests at a time, is outfitted with simple instructions and a widescreen monitor that allows groups to preview their tableau and jockey for pole position. An included scrapbook table allows attendees to paste their favorite shots as they pose with a selection of fun props, such as the front half of a Camaro and other people's kids.
The booth can print unlimited color and black-and-white photo strips for the full three hours, and all photos taken during the event are uploaded to a password-protected website for future perusal, with the Groupon-holder also receiving a physical souvenir in the form of a flash-drive or CD.
Southern Gem Photo Booths
Up to 10 people can fit into each of Southern Gem Photo Booths' photo chambers to pose for ultra-high-resolution images. A flat LED screen allows groups to choose between color or black-and-white shots and then counts down the seconds before each flash. Attendants ensure that booths function seamlessly, supply partygoers with props, and set up scrapbook tables where guests create mementos for party hosts.
