Whither The Party Snap?
This leads on as a natural progression from the wet-plate worker who rolled up to a battlefield with a wagon full of glass plates and collodion and sold keepsakes to the soldiers - developed right in the wagon or tent and destined to be on-sold at fabulous prices in flea markets ever since. Then came the tin type photo-cannons of the various seaside resorts, and finally the Polaroid pest who circulates in restaurants and night clubs. All good fun, and the results form a sort of a folk-museum of the times. Our client will be right in there with his dye-sub strips.
Is it time for he next stage, though? The selfie in the toilet making a duck face is all very well in a night club for drunken women, but most weddings want a bit more dignity. Even the photo booth, fun as it is, can pale. Now is he time to think of expanding the range of the art. To this end we will be introducing a range of professional papers - they come in rolls wide enough for two people and long enough to allow you to hold one end of it up against the bride and groom and rub furiously over it with a wax crayon - thus making a 1:1 size image of the happy couple. At Christmas you use red and green and if the bridal party is Goths you can use black.
