Wired Rawfile:

Photographer Billy Hunt thought he had found a way to hack his portrait subjects’ awkwardness: a scream-activated photo booth.

“I’ve done a lot of portrait work and you can see the war in these people’s brains when you try to take their picture,” says Hunt. “People always want to present themselves in a certain way and they make it worse. Much much worse.”

Hunt’s Screamotron is a converted boom box that only takes a photo when you scream. There’s a business opportunity here, I’m sure.
