Everyone has used or seen the photos created by using the Photobooth software on any Mac computer. You sit there, and with the click of a button, your face is automatically distorted, warped, twirled and more. It’s definitely amusing for ten minutes or so.
Designer, Mark Pernice of Brooklyn, decided he wanted to stretch that ten minutes of amusement and transform a photo into real life.
He used the Photobooth software to capture a distorted photo of himself and made his captured face into a mask that incredibly matches the photo. (Some people just have way too much time on their hands).
I wonder if this will be the trend come Halloween time. Actually, I’ll be the first to say it here, that the top costume of Halloween 2010, will be yourself, with a distorted Photobooth mask. My hope is to see somebody construct the twirl filter.
