Giant Photo Booth Style Family Portraits

Giant Photobooth Style Family Portraits

 

Awhile back, there was a movie starring David Duchovny called “The Joneses” about a family that moves into a suburban neighborhood. I never saw it myself, but my wife saw a still from the movie of the staircase in the Jones’ home of an interesting series of family portraits and we decided to re-create it for our own staircase.

We set up for photos and tried to get a range of expressions for all of us from serious, to silly. Once the photography was done, we picked the best expressions, did the edits, including a vignetting effect to mimic the look of the old-school photo booths. I arranged the photos in Photoshop including the black borders and was ready to take it to the printer. I ended up getting 60″ by roughly 16″ prints done on bonded engineering paper at Office Depot using the inkjet paper. A note, if you decide to take on this project yourself, be sure to get samples made from the printer before you buy. I went to three different office places before I found one that printed using an inkjet printer that could handle photo-quality. The prints, for all four were only $15. By far the cheapest portion of the project.

After getting the prints, I bought 48″x96″ sheets of half-inch black foam core board and a sheet bonding product by 3M. I carefully mounted the prints to the foam core and trimmed the excess away leaving me with tidy-looking prints on the foam core. I used a strong double-sided tape to mount the assembly to the walls following the slope of the stairs. This project would also look great mounted squared up on a large, blank wall.

An impressive and striking way to do a family portrait

Generations Frame Photo

Generations Frame Photo

Four Generations in one photo. Frames within frames.

This image was made with each subject (except the child) holding a large frame with a white piece of paper behind the glass. After the photography, edits were made to each image and Photoshop used to nest each subsequent image into the frame Once the print was made, it was mounted into the same frame used in the photos to complete the effect.

This Generations within Frames photo is a very unique and meaningful way to capture the memory of that special time when young and old could come together.
