Though handy for studying for tests or describing criminals to police, a photographic memory is difficult to mount above the mantle. Capture easy-to-hang snapshots with today’s Groupon: for $395, you get a three-hour photo-booth-rental package from Strike a Pose Photo Booths (a $795 value).
Boasting 18-megapixel cameras and professional lighting in its booths, Strike a Pose takes event photography beyond bright flashes and stiff stances with elegant mobile portraiture. Three hours of unlimited photo time presents guests, hosts, and audacious party crashers with a creative opportunity to freeze a moment’s memories without the use of dry ice and a time capsule. A Sony SnapLab sublimation dye printer swiftly prints both black-and-whites and color photos for portrait partakers, and party planners can easily opt to display a particular logo or message at the top of each print. The booth, which holds up to 10 people at once, also captures 25-second video messages, so that attendees may add a 25 seconds of footage to entertain or send well wishes that hosts can watch after the special occasion.
Along with an impressively clad booth attendant ready to assist would-be models with their big debuts, the package includes a DVD of images as well as online photo hosting. Those with an unexpected influx of guests or one struggling to nail a perfect Flashdance routine video clip can add hours to the rental or upgrade their package.
