Side project for Halloween party

I found this instructable a couple of months ago about turning a camera connected to a raspberry pi into your own personal photo booth! I want to expand on this by giving it the ability to either email you the resulting picture, or tweeting it at your handler for the world to see!

Most of this instructable is fairly straight forward. It utilizes a free command-line-activated digital camera controller called Gphoto2 so that you can set up scripts that take the picture for you. Then you embed the script in a button that’ll be on a simple GUI screen that the user activates and…. voila!

Since the programming involved with this is fairly light weight, and there isn’t a ton to setup physically, I’m going to try and set this up pretty quickly for a Halloween party I’m going to on Halloween night! If all goes well and it works out, I will be sure to post some pictures! If not, well, you know the drill…
