Partyphile Recommends: Photoqube

Since taking a lot of candid photos inside bars and parties can be quite controversial, I think the perfect solution is a photo booth. My personal favorite photo booth these days is Photoqube who sponsored my last Anniversary Party. They have gorgeous print-outs and personalize the photo, the costumes, and even the background or photo wall.

Partyphiles Confess: Photo-taking

I asked: is it alright to take photos inside bars and clubs?

Here are the best answers:

Patricia Uy: It’s ok. You have to take pictures of good and crazy memories. It’s especially ok if the bar is nice too.

Monique Calimbas: I guess it is okay if you just take a few photos to document the night-out but to take photos when you are all drunk ad post everything on FB… that is another matter.

Dean Macavinta: It’s a free country. It’s a public place, so on is responsible for his own behaviour.

Adylon Marasigan: We should always practice responsible posting/social networking. If you are friends with the subject, better ask permission before uploading the photos. If the subject is a stranger, they should have known that what they were doing was in front of others and was done in public. Everyone should be responsible for his own actions

Partyphile Clues You In: Picture-Taking

Here's the deal. We have all experienced having embarrassing and less-than-flattering photos uploaded and tagged on Facebook for all our friends to feast on. This is somewhat of a new phenomenon as cameras have become cheaper and the means of displaying photos in public have become more accessible. In the olden days of partying, this was not the case.

What happened in the club, stayed in the club. Or "disco" as the Partyphiles of yesteryear would put it. So here is my two cents. I think, you should take photos within an hour of entering the club because that would ensure that you'd still look somewhat normal. After that, turn the cameras off and enjoy the night.

Taking too many photos would prevent you from REALLY partying, and you might catch strangers in uncompromising situations. I say, take photos right when you arrive and then party hearty afterwards.

How about you? What do you think?
