A ShowIt Web Photoshow

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, August 15, 2009

A bit over two years ago I purchased a program for putting photo slideshows up on the web. But it wouldn’t work on WordPress blogs. Things have changed and now I’m trying it out. But I still can’t get it working by linking it directly.

So here’s a yet another way:
— from Facebook CLICK HERE

Think I might have to get a paid blog so it will all go up easier.  And Quicker.

Anyway, given all the time I’ve been at this tonight here’s a pic of the Beautiful Bride from that wedding

a photobooth sample

If you’ve been a regular reader you’ll be aware I started doing photobooths at weddings early last year.  Been a huge hit.  So I thought I would drop a vid of one I did up – there’s always far more pics to show than will fit.  Nonetheless a selection was made.

a quick suggestion before the video. After you click play, just as it starts hit the pause button and let it download at least half way before you play it – otherwise, depending on your download speed it may stop and start.  Don’t know about you but that annoys the daylights out of me.

Ok I started this post some hours ago.  But couldn’t get the direct link to work on my blog now.  Not sure the problem but there is more than one way to skin a cat – as the saying goes.

Got it up on my Facebook so click on this link …[Kristy & Joe Vid] and it should work.  Enjoy it!

And if that does not work, my brilliant daughter showed me how to upload them to YouTube and embed the video that way.

and of course a pic to go with it.

Photobooth at Belinda & Glenn’s Wedding

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, December 14, 2008

Lot of people haven’t come across photobooths.  Really they aren’t a new idea – rather a “re-imaged” concept for weddings where the guests get to express some of the personality that attracted them to the bride and groom in the first place.  What prompted to give them a go was when I saw the San Diego wedding photographers  Nate & Jaclyn blogging their Crazy Booth – which about sums it up.  Heaps of fun and the wedding couple get great pics of their friends.

So here’s a few sample pics of one of my photobooth shoots.  I used to take a white backdrop but that became a bit of a pain due to space at some of the reception venues.  So now I just try to use what is there and make the best of it.  Mostly I simply drop them into a sepia tone, or in this case and older 70’s style rendition.
