SMILE, You’re at SXSW: Awards Edition

  • March 19, 2012

Well, we did it. We made it through another SXSW—the whole shebang. Beyond the marathon of intellectual inspiration, music discovery and free food, I’d have to say my favorite part was the photo booth we put together for INK’s Green Room sponsorship.

Three criteria are crucial to the success of a photo booth

1. The camera. Smilebooth’s innovative technology produces high quality photos.

2. The props. Leslie Blevins contributed her craft, creativity and sleeping time to make our unbelievably spectacular props and backdrop.

3. The people. The heart of a photograph is the subject, so we thank all who participated.

We have closely analyzed each and every photo from the week, narrowing them down to a handful of favorites based on the following criteria: facial expression, body language, use of space, use of props and creativity and/or weirdness. We are pleased to present each of the following photos with a special recognition.
