A favorite recent thrift store find was a discarded passport photo camera that we used to fashion a photobooth of sorts at the 4th of July party. It works with peel apart instant film that we can buy at a local camera store.
The camera has two lenses to snap two identical photos at the same time- and if you’ve ever gotten passport photos taken, you know they generally capture you at the worst moment in the most unflattering light.
Brian made a cover for one of the lenses out of a film case lid and card stock. He would cover one of the lenses, take a photo, cover the other lens, and take another photo with the same film. This would give the side-by-side effect of people standing together. Even the mishaps turned out pretty cool!
It happens to be time for me to renew my passport- I wonder if they’d allow me to use one of these photos… :)This entry was posted in vintage and tagged Arizona, brian, passport camera, pictures, pool party, t-store scores, vintage. ← blue bicycle… recipe box: roasted beet salad →
