[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the first shot of my 'photo booth' project. I take my camera and lights to a music event and set up a photo booth. Everyone over the course of the night drinks more, gets more excited and at some point gets in front of my camera. I did not arrange this shot. I just waited until they decided upon a pose and this is what they decided on!
I used 1 strobe and umbrella. In Photoshop I created a pinkish layer and blended it into the background. I then used the extrude filter.

they managed this by themselfs? LOL... alchool is a terrible stuff :P

I couldn't compose this better if i wanted to... maybe i will start my own photo booth project in Lisbon eheheh just kidding.

More serious now, this seems an interesting project, it's only in the "night life"?

Hi John,
You waited for the right time. The composition it's great. The PP work it's also fantastic. Good job :)


Great shot, a fair example from a very attentive photograph.
I love the scene, completely mad and well done for the desorganisation from the effect it allows a few more degrees in alcohol. ( too much is dangerous, take a taxi back, not you but these)

Great project you have there! The results must be astonishing, like this one really is. Great study on human behaviour and excellent poses captured.

Alcool Désinhibiteur de Pink Arses !!!
Good idea, John …

Is that Ove-Naxx on the right? I'm not sure I wanted to see this!

I wished you didn't crack those cracks further!

Nice crazy idea, inventive !
Photos in a booth is a subject I would like to experiment, not necessarily in the same theme as yours ... ;)

:))intersting photo!congrats!

I'm suprised this shot still here!I thought some "good thinking person" made a complain, but no!
You know john, this is one of the most funny and provocative shot i'seen on TL. Well done.


what is the concept behind the extrude filter? i don't get -- it makes the picture more difficult to access mentally. or is *that* the concept? ;)
