Cringey Christ­mas photo trend pokes fun at times

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

DO you have a Christ­mas por­trait that makes you cringe?

A new Christ­mas photo trend at Robina Town Cen­tre gives the chance to ri­val the pic­tures that make you wince, with free Awk­ward Christ­mas Por­traits (pic­tured). Mar­ket­ing man­ager Melissa a Shaw said the con­cept was a nod to the days be­fore e “in­sta- wor­thy”, , when pho­tog­ra­phers h had hd one shot at a pho­to­graph and could only hope it turned out well.

“Awk­ward por­traits are rem­i­nis­cent of a time be­fore dig­i­tal cam­eras and smart­phones,” she said. “These por­traits evoke a sense of nos­tal­gia and give a li light­hearted mo­ment to­gether, while not tak­ing th them­selves too se se­ri­ously. “It’s just a g good ex­cuse to dress d up, have a laugh la and cap­ture tu a hi­lar­i­ous mo­ment m with fam­ily and friends.” The photo booth has a pro­fes­sional be­hind the lens and a mul­ti­tude of props and cos­tumes every Thurs­day. The weirder the pos­ing, the bet­ter.
