Art Department Creates Valentine’s Day Photo Booth

Laura Lopez, Lara Prandi, and Deysi Meneses

Since our school had an amazing opportunity to try an in-school photo booth, we got to see and test the opinions of the students and staff who tried it out. We got to figure out the reason why we needed to have the photobooth, why the cost was the way it was, and why it was a fun way to raise money. We were introduced to the students who planned the photo booth and made the fun happen. Deysi Meneses planned and proposed the idea of the photo booth. The students in Photography 1 and 2 were a part of planning but Deysi was the director. The photo booth was so important because the photography classes were trying to raise money for photography and also the art department in general. Most of the time, the teachers have been spending their own money on things from paint brushes to paper for the art students of Liberty High School. Fundraisers like the photo booth help to offset the cost and allow teachers to purchase other supplies so desperately needed. All the students that were working and planning the photobooth got great compliments for being kind and welcoming.

“The staff was trying to not make the process awkward, but fun,” said senior, Kiara Aburto Torres.

There were no complaints about the props or backdrops for the pictures. Most of the props were from when Mrs. Hinton worked at M.M. Pierce Elementary School so they were reused,  a lot of people wished there were more, specifically more backdrops to choose from.

“I wish there were more props involving funny hats, glasses, and maybe even a wig” sophomore, Gavin Cook said

I asked a lot of the staff for what they thought they needed to add, and most mentioned advertisement and promotion, they said there would probably be more customers and people wanting to get their picture done if there was more advertisement.

“I feel like promotion goes a long way, so more promotion would’ve had more impact,” said senior, Lillian Crawford

Nobody who tried out the photobooth had any complaints about their opportunity, and everyone was glad to provide for the art department’s photography class. The students and teacher, Mrs. Hinton, were glad for the people who took pictures and hope to do it again next year.
