07 Apr How to Choose the Best Photo Booth for an Event
Let us begin with the basics. There are two types of photo booth. One is open and the other is enclosed. You can imagine the setting of your event, how you intend to host it and what your guests may prefer. Accordingly, you can choose between an open and enclosed photo booth. An enclosed photo booth will allow you to have better control of the lights and props. It is a confined space so there are fewer challenges with framing. On the flipside you would have limited capacity in an enclosed photo booth. An open photo booth can accommodate more people but the range of the frame or the photo will depend on the camera. It is not as if you can accommodate as many people you want. An open photo booth can allow the venue to contribute to the setting but there can be issues with light and props going out of frame.
Once you have cracked the code and decided in favour of open or enclosed photo booth, you need to choose the style. You must never hire a photo booth that is not appropriate for the type of event you are planning. For instance, a birthday party for a six year old or even a ten year old must always have a kids’ photo booth. There is a distinct difference between kids’ photo booth and those for adults. It is not just the size but the style, the props it comes with, the lights and colours among other physical attributes. If you are hosting a stag or hen party, then you would be looking at a completely different style of photo booth. The same logic applies to weddings, receptions, anniversaries or social get-togethers.
After you have chosen the style, you must focus on the size. A photo booth should be spacious enough to accommodate a group of friends, colleagues, neighbours or a large family to indulge in a session. Unless you can have only one person or a couple use the photo booth at a time and that is how you event is going to pan out, you should put some serious thought into the size. You wouldn’t want one or two friends be left out of a large group due to the space constraint in a photo booth. That will just ruin the moment for them and also dampen the ambience of your event. Beyond these quintessential elements, you are free to hire a photo booth with any theme and type of props that suit your event.
