First of all, I would like to thank Nate and Jaclyn from The Image is Found for the inspiration to do a Crazybooth. I varied a bit because I went full length which enabled me to do some reall cool stuff! It was a massive success and the bride and groom were thrilled on the night with the concept. Best of all it really helped fill out our coverage which had to that point been a bit patchy due to time constraints.
My blog entry with the shots is here: http://ncp.typepad.com/ (Just select Crazybooth from the right sidebar menu).
It's a great concept because:
1. I get paid for extra coverage at $100 an hour
2. I get paid $200 for the Crazybooth itself
3. I know this couple will be getting extra pages in their album for the Crazybooth images; and
4. I will get a lot of extra image sales from folks who got in and got their shots taken.
All told a great idea and a LOT of fun on the night. Add to that, somehow someone in Cleveland found my site and cross posted it on their blog! Go figure!
For the technically minded, I had a 3 metre wide white velvet style backdrop lit by two 580EX strobes on manual in Lastolite Softboxes. Next time I will add a third to light up the backdrop better and get the folks out a little from the back to reduce shadows.
Oh - props are great as well! The frame was a big hit, but some feather boas will be on my purchase list before the next one!
