For the veteran professional and beginner alike. Instant Portrait In A Box, is all you need to begin getting those Candid Self Portraits for all occasion's.


Brian D. Watters August 22, 2004

This eloquently designed box has a removable static non adhesive "Instant Portrait" logo, for capturing your subject unaware. Simply remove the label and present the "Instant Portrait in a Box", to the model of your choice.
When they begin to open the lid, a special heavy duty spring loaded assisting mechanism with do the rest.
Flash and lens spring into action with instant, (one size fits all), shutter release On The Fly. Ejection of chemically treated photo cluster paper is ejected in the same motion while 0.5 second photo processing completes for instant gratification.
Friends, family and clients alike will remember you for a long time to come when receiving these gems as stocking stuffers, or on any occasion.
Not recommended for the weak of heart; long haul truck drivers, pilots, or those working with explosives. Consult a physician before using where liquor is served.
Model release printed on bottom inside flap.
Get yours while supplies last.
I used three separate photos here, and decorated a little box with X-mas wrap.
Photoshop was used along with many layers of differing opacity. Cloning brush to tidy up some parts of the box, and pinch filter followed by distort and opacity change for the reflection in the lens. The eyes were enlarged using a putty filter by(Auto F/X software) Dreamsuite series one, as was the lettering on the box, and the light emanating from the flash, Eyecandy4000, Corona was used. 3 originals shown here. #160991
