On April 30th I provided a photobooth for Ross LeBlanc’s 80th birthday.
Ross, who plays guitar in a band, was told he had to be at the Estevan Royal Canadian Legion to play for an anniversary. The Legion was filled to capacity with friends and family, some who had come a very long way.
After the surprise I shot a few family photos before the party really got underway. Then I fired up the photobooth and got a lot of great photos. It was probably the longest line I’ve ever had, and we were burning through them quickly, too. I think nearly all the nearly 300 people went through in a couple hours.
This photobooth was my third use of a green screen and it worked well. Out of the seven scenes you could choose, I added two custom ones for this event – a canola field and the Torquay elevator. (Ross has lived all his life near Oungre, his grand-daughter tells me). Other choices included the Las Vegas strip, Banff, a pier by the ocean, two palm trees scenes. (Thanks to Jon Gillies, Images by Gillies, for the pier shot and one of the palm trees. He travels more than I do.)
The entire gallery can be found here.
Photobooth sessions like this are a lot of fun for parties, be it weddings, Christmas parties, anniversaries or birthdays, apparently. Each group that goes through gets a 4×6 print to take home, and you get the digital files so you can see all the fun.
Drop me a line if you’re interested.
