Steps for the easiest DIY photobooth ever:
1. Tape a sheet or old curtain to the wall with heavy packing tape.
2. Set up tripod and camera. You may have to secure the tripod to a table (we taped it to our coffee table so we could fit the tall people in each shot).
3. Gather some props and place them nearby so your friends will put roosters on their heads.
4. Make filters out of cereal boxes or anything you can find around the house. Hold over flash while taking a photo and have fun with it.
5. Set the camera to self timer and pose away!

I really like the tripod idea, NO ONE wants to actually be the one taking the picture, brilliant!

that's a great and fun idea! all these pictures are so exciting. the pic where you all are (i think) drinking something, the expression of the guy on the far left is so funny. and that one guy is really good at making scary mouth and hand gestures (in a good way). and you look so pretty in the pic with the guitar! :D haha.

This diy photobooth is the best idea I've seen on the internet in a long time. The first three pictures are amazing. Especially the third. The flash filters are ingenious.

How fun! I love the one with the ukulele!

The hot sauce on my blog was Tapatio... sheesh, I just finished eating a quesadilla right before I wrote this. They're such an easy fix :)

And, yeah... I'm a Mama :) I prefer not to delve into my personal life too much on the web... ya know? But every once in a while...

This is so fun! You and your friends are all so cute!

PS: I LOVE Portland. I've lived there for 16 years (although we are in El Paso for a few months for my husband's work), and I won't ever leave! Beautiful music, the greenest city in the US, most bike friendly, most parks in an Urban area...I could go on forever.
if you decided to move there and need any help with anything-apts, work, etc- I'd be glad to help!!
-And ya, I've been married for 1.5years. It's awesome and perfect for me! A best friend who you can kiss? Yes, please.
