04 Mar Tips to Strike the Perfect Pose in a Photo Booth
You may be delighted or disappointed to know this. There is no perfect pose for a photo booth. There is no prized secret or a standard rule that can help you to strike the perfect pose inside a photo booth or outside if it is an open set-up. The perfect pose is not one that you meticulously craft and practice. It is not one that you should choreograph with your friends and then try to replicate at the exact moment when the shutter of the camera blinks. If there is one thing that is common in every perfect pose then it is the vibe. The vibe has to be joyous, almost ecstatic. The scene has to be vibrant, the people must be at their charming best and everyone should be having a good time. The good time should not be just apparent in the picture but be the actual experience inside or outside the photo booth.
No matter what type of photo booth you hire, many people are likely to pout, smile, wink, jump and indulge in a myriad of expressions as well as postures. With all possibilities in consideration, here are some tips to strike the perfect pose in a photo booth.
• Know your profile. Everyone has multiple profiles, speaking purely in photography jargon. Some people look best when they are facing the camera, dead straight. Some people look better when they turn their face a little, could be towards the right or left. Some people tilt their face upward or bend it a tad downward. Some people turn their bodies for a better form and posture. You need to know what form and posture will be ideal. You need to know which facial profile of yours is the best. This applies to all the guests in a photo. A photo booth is a session but it is not one where a photographer will actually help you identify your best profile. Prepare and then use that profile to your advantage to strike the perfect pose.
• A photo booth is rarely an idle or static event. Most people will be indulging in some kind of activity or the other while getting photographed. These motions are often fun filled and busy, at times erratic and almost always beyond any one individual’s control. The gestures, the unscripted role play, the unpredictable frolic and the spectrum of expressions people may sport will make for an eclectic mix. Trying to find or strike the perfect pose in such a scenario is futile. The idiosyncrasies, the impromptu poses and the improvisations are what will make the photo special. In such scenarios, just let it go and be your charming best relishing the moment.
