A few weeks back, there was a bit in Heather's Secrets of Paris Newsletter that caught my eye. I've always heard about the Harcourt Studios, and how the stars & bourgeoisie of Paris loved getting their picture taken by them, and now it's finally accessible to us normal folk thanks to a few photo booths they have set up around Paris.
It took them over a year of research to develop a booth that could reproduce their infamous lighting techniques, and now you can get the same result for 10€ instead of paying 1000€+. The first booth was put in at the MK2 Bibliothèque and now they've installed a second one at the Franck et Fils boutique in the 16th.
C went to try it out the other day, and I really like the results, even if he wasn't too happy with the photo. He is a giant, so the seat in the booth was much too high for him, which meant the lighting was a bit off and he had to scrunch down in an awkward pose to take the picture. I however think he looks like a handsome 1930's police detective (though I admit I may be biased) :Speaking of photos, we finally got the links to our wedding pictures, and I can't wait to go through them this weekend! I'll post a few once we've had a chance to pick out our favorites.
