With the availability of cameras on smartphones, many people wonder why photo booths are so popular. No matter how advanced smartphone cameras get, they will never be able to offer the same type of selfie quality as a photo booth. The next time you and a group are looking for the best way to capture your moment in pictures, you should consider getting to a business that has a photo booth.
Ideal For Large Groups
Smartphone cameras have a narrow range when it comes to taking selfies. There are only so many people you can fit in a selfie with a camera that is only an arm’s length away. There are settings on a smartphone that might help, but you usually only get one shot at taking a group selfie.
A photo booth was designed to get large groups of people easily into one photo. You can stand at more than an arm’s length, and your picture is not going to have closeups of some people and far away shots of others because the picture plane is uniform.
Lighting Is Perfect
Some newer smartphones try to compensate for bad lighting with selfies, but there is only so much a handheld camera can do to enhance a photo in bad light. A photo booth has its own studio lighting and a curtain to make sure that no light escapes from your picture. The photo booth’s interior is also designed to perfectly distribute and use light to give you the best quality image.
Great Editing Options
Most smartphones give you basic picture editing options that can help to improve your image a little, and there are plenty of apps that will allow you to turn you and your friend into dogs. But the Smile 2.0 software on a Face Place photo booth is designed to be easy to use and have all of the image editing options you need to get great results.
No matter how hard you try, if you and your friends try to do different poses with selfies the images will always come out bad. The reason is that someone has to hold the phone, which automatically skews the image to one side or the other. If someone in the picture moves and bumps the camera, then the image can be completely ruined.
A photo booth holds the camera for you and allows you and your friends to strike any pose you want. As long as you keep the photo booth camera in the middle of your group, you will always get the perfect group pictures without any distortion.
Smartphone cameras are convenient and, under the right conditions, can offer high quality pictures and movies. But when it comes to limitations on getting the best selfies, a smartphone has a long list of issues to deal with. When you want the perfect selfies of you or a group, the best way to do it is to use a photo booth. With a photo booth, you will always get the perfect selfie that you can print out on the spot and share online.
