The standard definition of photo booth suggests it to be a modern kiosk or machine, which uses an automatic camera and film processor to capture and deliver photos right on the spot. “Photo Booth Hire” is essentially hiring the photo booth from a vendor company. While this has been an essential revenue generating component for most leisure parks and amusement grounds, the photo booth has been gaining real momentum in the party and event spaces, of late.
In its former days, photo booth hire was done by companies for people who clicked instant passport sized photographs and sticker based photographs. With the advent of modern technology and software, the photo booth is used more for amusement and entertainment purposes. Around the word today, more people are hunting for photo booths to rent for wedding parties as compared to earlier trends of DJ rentals.
These booths hired for events are equipped with much more than an ordinary photo-capturing kiosk. The ultra-modern photo booths come along with wigs and funky props for participants to try on while clicking their funny pictures. The photo booths these days also come with an editing software which help you clear those acne scars off your face (in the photo, obviously) or make you look like a fairy straight out of Tinkerbell with the options to add make-up to your face in the photo. Along with these modern functions, photo booths also adds a variety like animated gifs, slow-mo videos, virtual props, funny costumes and so much more. A few photo booths also print a flip-book for the participants capturing their photo booth memories. With the world transforming into a selfie and photo-centric place, the photo booth is something that every guest on the list will enjoy.
While choosing a company for photo booth hire, it is necessary to do some research and get insights into the reviews for the company. While a company may have an exemplary website and offer a range of customizations, one thing you might want to look into is the number of events which have hired booths from that company. A company which has provided its photo booths to a large number of events is more likely to have fixed more number of things based on the various feedbacks. However, if the company is relatively new, you would not want your event to be the guinea pig of the company for an experimental run. Many companies would claim that a high megapixel camera is what you should look for when it comes to quality; but, quite counter-intuitively that is not really the true case. The quality of the photo-shoot depends on many more important factors including the space-constraint, the angle of the camera and the dpi (dots per inch) of the printing mechanism.
All of these checks will have you good to go. But, would something extra hurt? No, right? Always ask the company for the customizations they offer. After all, it is the customization which is going to add the “wow” factor to the entire setup. The next time you have a wedding, an event or just a lawn party, make sure that you make it a memorable one and go for a photo booth hire.
