Coming up with creative ideas for a photo booth can be challenging, and the photos may not turn out as well as you’d like.
Without the right tips, your photo booth experience may not be as memorable or fun as you had hoped — the lighting in the booth may not be ideal, you may struggle to come up with ideas for backdrops and props, etc. — resulting in bad quality photos.
But don’t worry. Here, we discuss some tips for a 360 photo booth at a wedding:
1. Take advantage of the timer function
Since many photo booths have a timer function, they ensure that everyone is in the shot. Don’t forget to count down when using the timer; it’ll let everyone know when the photo will be taken. This helps to avoid any confusion or awkward moments while ensuring that everyone strikes a pose when the timer is about to go off.
2. Maintain cleanliness
Don’t let the photo booth area get dirty if you want your pictures to turn out great. Ensure no one spills food/drinks around the booth. Also, do your best to make sure the camera lens isn’t affected, as any smudges or marks can significantly affect the quality of the pictures.
3. Don’t forget the props
Striking a pose is the key to taking great photos. Encourage your guests to have fun with their poses and be creative — trying different gestures and expressions can create memorable, fun photos. You may also provide some accessories or props to add some extra flair to the photos.
4. Ensure lighting isn’t compromised
Lighting is arguably the most important component in photography. Be mindful of how lighting is done within the booth and see how it’s affecting the pictures. If the lighting is bad, it may produce unappealing shadows and highlights; even dim lighting can make photos look grainy or blurry. So, adjust the settings if needed and encourage guests to stand in the right position.
