Bentonville Photography: Capturing Joy at Bentonville Arkansas’ Christmas Square

In the heart of Bentonville as the town prepared for its much-anticipated City of Bentonville Lighting of the Square Event, a unique excitement stirred among the team behind Halumin™. They had a novel idea: to bring Halumin, not just as a tool, but as a participant in the festivities.

Dressed for the occasion Halumin was adorned in a stylish holiday outfit, complete with mylar garland and twinkling Christmas lights, transforming it into a festive centerpiece. This eye-catching ensemble drew curious glances and excited queries from passersby. “What is that?” they asked, their interest piqued by this unusual, glowing object.

Unlike traditional photography, where a flash and camera might seem intrusive, Halumin created a different atmosphere. People were drawn in, not just by its light but by its novelty. “I’m super interested. What’s happening?” they’d ask, their curiosity turning into eagerness to participate.

Halumin’s unique design, with its 18-inch staging area, introduced a playful challenge. People couldn’t rely on their standard selfie poses, especially in groups. “We all get in? Yes, you got to like each other for this one,” they’d joke as they scrunched together, creating a sense of camaraderie and intimacy. This closeness, sometimes playfully uncomfortable, sparked genuine reactions and laughter, a stark contrast to the typical, reserved poses seen in standard photographs.

As the team moved through the crowd, Halumin in tow, they encountered a variety of subjects – from families with their pets to groups of friends. “Do you guys want to do a picture of the doggy? Yes!” The interactions were spontaneous and joyful, with Halumin at the center of it all.

The magic of Halumin lay not just in its innovative design but in its ability to create moments. The laughter it induced was infectious, and this joy was reflected in the images captured. And in those brief moments, the true spirit of the event was captured – unguarded, cheerful, and real.

As the evening drew to a close, the team reflected on the success of their venture. Halumin, initially designed for capturing small subjects and products, had proven itself to be more than just a light modifier. It was a creator of memories, a catalyst for laughter, and a bringer of light in more ways than one.

In the glow of Bentonville’s Christmas lights, Halumin stood not just as an invention but as a testament to the power of innovation in bringing people together. And as the lights of the Square dimmed, the images captured by Halumin remained – vivid reminders of a night filled with light, laughter, and the joy of connection.
