My dear blogging friend (and fellow awesome grandparent), Susan, asked about the chalkboard bubble prop used at Holly and Ben’s baby shower. It is a fun prop to help break the ice at an event such as that, to get people to interact more with the camera rather than just striking a cheesy pose or, worse, be a part of a really bad, unflattering shot because you have a stick up your butt and forgot to remove said stick before you arrived at the event where many pictures will be taken.
No, I wouldn’t be talking about anyone attending the kids’ shower…certainly not certain in-laws of my daughter’s! But if I were talking about certain in-laws I would have to wonder why did you even bother to show up and be all pissy and rude…in my house?
But back to the prop. It is a great prop. Best photography-related purchase I made this year. I wish my best photography-related purchase I made this year was an amazing Canon Rebel T3i.
As promised, it does give confidence to the meek, liven up even the dullest of shots and really does make your photos talk.
Oh heck! It’s fun!
Unless your subjects are in a pissy, rude mood.
Here are some other great photo props ideas that will definitely make your portrait taking fun and more creative. When people compliment you on your clever, creativity just smile demurely and say thank you…then snap away!
