The Mighty Booth
Got a photo booth nearby? Try this; strike a pose and hold it until you get to the next to the last shot… on this penult photo, try and strike a pose extremely different than your other pose. After that shot is taken, quickly resume your original shot as best as you can. So all the photos should look as close to each other as possible except for the next to the last one.
I call ’em Penultimate Photos and I’ve been taking a bunch of them lately. It’s a fun challenge, but I also prefer them to the standard photobooth shots… Typically, when you pose you are showing what you want the world to see you as, but when you try not posing a little bit of the real you can’t help but reveal itself. If you try this fun experiment, please post it to flickr with the tag “penultimatephoto“.
