Watch people scream for the camera
Photographer Billy Hunt was looking for a way to capture portraits of people in an unconventional way, to cut through the awkwardness of a normal portrait. He says “People always want to present themselves in a certain way and they make it worse” when taking photos. So to solve this issue, he thought of something to break the ice.
To accomplish a non-traditional portrait, Hunt created a special device he calls the Scream-o-Tron 3000. According to Wired, the device is a microphone connected to a karaoke boombox. He then has his ‘victims’ yell and scream into the boombox, and then using a wireless connected camera, snaps a photo of the person screaming. The camera is rigged to snap the photo when it hits a certain decibel. The results, well you can see for yourself below.
