Last week I received in the mail one Intel Core duo Mac Mini (circa 2006 or so). Over the next 9 weeks I will be transforming it into a working photobooth. Since I am not what one would call “handy with tools” I sat down with my dad over the weekend and roughly sketched out what I needed it to do:

  • provide access to the front and back of the enclosure,
  • provide keyboard space to work with the photobooth on site,
  • switch from a standard enclosed photobooth to a wide flexible space photobooth (in it’s premiere incarnation I will set it up to use a flexible shooting space rather than having a photobooth but I wanted that to be an option),
  • take n number of photos in sequence with a y interval of seconds between shots every time a button is pushed,
  • use either built in florescent lighting or an optionally attached strobe/umbrella set up, and
  • finally: look classy.

So I was pretty excited when I got back today these rough sketches that transformed my concept into something much more tangible. I’ll be posting the project progress here as I make it and eventually I’ll probably gather everything up into a single How-To post once the process is complete: Excitement abounds!

In realated news starting this summer I will begin offering a photobooth as an added service to event photography!

I think I killed my website database and thus my blog and everything else. I’m working on damage control and at least getting the galleries and images back online…

Kids, always remember to manually download a backup because the automatic back-up system might fail you and if you’ve been really lax about backing up then you might lose all your data. Ugh. At least I am back to square one, instead of square minus four.

Less than 24 hours and I’ve already got a very nice embedded portfolio gallery (all images from my newly assembled print portfolio book) and the blog transferred and rolling again. I’m still tweaking here and there and I need to add all sorts of information about services offered (and more pictures of course) but I feel pretty comfortable with it over all. Enough about how much I love the new site, how much do you love the new site?

Things have gotten a little busy what with my other job but I am plugging away at getting caught up on my (Average of a) Photo a Day project. I am also very hard at work on a site redesign that I hope to unveil in April: stay tuned!

That’s another weekend gone now. It seems like we just had new years, when did it get to be the end of January already? Three more photos uploaded today. Also I’ll have some portraits hanging at Strong Solutions in February and there will be a reception on the fifth as part of the quarterly Spokane Artwalk.
