But First Let Me Take A #Selfie
IS THE PHOTO BOOTH THE ORIGINAL SELFIE MACHINE??
At the Oscars Ellen DeGenres’ decided to perk up the usual ‘stuffy’ and sometimes ‘boring’ Oscars by getting all of her celebrity friends to join her in a selfie. The Oscars is quite a formal event and Ellen was determined that she wanted to liven it up. The photo went viral and has quickly become the most retweeted post on the social network Twitter. Taking photos of you and your group of friends can be a real laugh, brings people closer and draws a big smile out of everyone. The past few weeks, you have probably noticed the no-make up selfies being posted on websites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for cancer charities, this shows how quickly the selfie craze is growing.
What did Ellen decide to use to use to take the photo? A mobile phone of course! We all use mobile phones because it’s quick and easy, but doesn’t it annoy you having to hold the phone as far away from you as possible without getting your arm in the picture too!? We all want to capture those moment of fun with our friends and if you and your friends are having a get together maybe you would want to capture some fun photos without having to hold your camera up. This is why we have Hellofoto Booths, a photo booth hire service with a difference, a fast way to capture all of those important snaps in a nicely presented way. So maybe if you’re planning a wedding, graduating or having a birthday party and fancy something a little quirky and different, then Hellofoto Booths hire this is something you should consider.
We all love selfies these days and we all love to share good times with each other, what better way to share with friends than to take photos the original way. Selfies have been around for a long time but no one knew it! The first selfie was taken by a photo booth in 1920, it’s nice to bring back something old and rekindle it and a diverse way. It’s a funky take on a vintage idea. Old things are the best things and reinventing them to fit into the 21st century is amazing and will help you gain lots of interest in your beautiful pictures!
