Alternative Prom Photography — Ideas & Tips for Truly Great Prom Photos

Extra photos for bloggers: 123

Prom photo-ops have traditionally come in two flavors.

1) A camera-wielding parent on the front porch 2) The dude your high school hired arranging your arms into awkward poses.

You can shoot a mean photo, so why not try your hand at playing photographer for the night? For a kickstart, we put together a guide for prom photos that are as cool and fun as you are.

Learn how to levitate in photos or how to make your own photobooth for a post-prom party.

You only get to go to prom once (or twice, if you’re cool like that). So make photos that’ll wow your date and will be awesome to look at years later!

It’s a heartbreaking tale: film may one day be hard to find.

With companies cutting down on the kinds of film they make, filmophiles are working to amass a stash of their favorites.

The good news is film keeps better than a fruitcake from 2005!

With a few simple steps, the film you bought in 2012 will be usable for years to come.

Make the Ultimate Photo Timeline (And It’s Not on Facebook!)

There was that time your nephew accidentally deleted a month’s worth of photos. Or how about that time that your sister borrowed your camera and forgot to give it back?

To say the least, there are gaps in the photo timeline of your life.

That’s why we were pretty excited to hear about Pictarine!

It’s a web app that collects your photos from all the different places you’ve posted them on the web — Flickr, Picasa, Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox and lots more. It then turns them into a clean timeline that you can browse.

It’s even able to pull in photos your closest friends snapped, so you can see photos from the get-together that you didn’t get on camera.

We could tell you how nostalgic it’ll make you feel, but scrolling through your life in photo-form is something you’ll have to experience yourself.
