The evolution of the modern photo booth is a fascinating subject to investigate. Most people might not realize this but vintage photo booths were actually filled with dangerous chemicals to process the images after the pictures were taken. That is why some machines gave out photo strips that were wet to the touch. Back in those days, you could never think of building your own photo booth for your business unless you really knew what you were doing. With technology being as advanced as it is, building a photo booth today should be easy, right?
A professionally made photo booth uses only high-definition photography equipment that is easy for anyone to use. The tricky part in making your own photo booth is in finding photography equipment that is versatile enough to not require instructions for anyone. Sure, you know how to take pictures with your smartphone because it is your phone. But when you hand your phone to someone else, you inevitably have to show them how to take pictures. With a professional photo booth, it is easy to understand how to take the pictures.
Creating the Right Environment
All you need to do to build a modern photo booth is build a booth with a curtain on it, right? What color would you need to make the background to get the most out of every image? How many lights would you need in the booth to get a perfect picture every time and where do you place those lights? What is the curtain made of? How big should the booth be?
As with most things, re-creating a professional photo booth looks easy until you actually start getting to work. Face Place has spent years researching photo booth construction and answering all of the above questions, and then some. If you are not going to do it right, then why bother doing it at all?
If you plan on building your own photo booth for your business, then you will need to make sure it can connect to a WiFi connection, allow customers to access their social media accounts, and also allow customers to have their images printed on t-shirts, coffee mugs, and other novelty items. Once again, developing a photo booth software platform that customers will enjoy is not nearly as easy as it sounds.
