Photo booths spent a long time in obscurity; once popular, photo booths eventually all but died off when it came to events for a whole slew of reasons; they were bulky, expensive to operate, they broke down easily, and photo finishing was once more cumbersome than it is today.
These Aren’t Your Dad’s Photo Booths
With the advent of digital photography and wireless internet connections, today’s contemporary photo booths have evolved into something completely new.
While how they are used has not changed much, they sure have under the hood, so to speak. With less hardware, modern photo booths are light weight and the images they take can reach a much wider audience than those who are in attendance of your event.
Social media has changed everything. By opting for a modern digital photo booth that is wirelessly connected to the internet, your guests can make your event brag worthy.
But enough about the boring reasons why photo booths are awesome, let’s look at ways they can boost the humour in your event and help people loosen up!
- With the absence of a pro photographer staring through a camera lens at your guests, people typically act more at ease –and a whole lot more slapstick. Everyone likes to get out of their head once in awhile and try new things, and having a person watching could limit the serendipity of the photos.
- Having props and funny accessories or cards with funny captions written on them will definitely help frame the moment. You can add as much, or as little silliness to your event by getting creative with them. Much like Cards Against Humanity has grown popular –funny captions can add just the right amount of humour to your own event.
- Sheer Entertainment – Quite often many events are not the best place for little kids who struggle to keep themselves entertained. A photo booth can keep the kids of guests entertained while the adults enjoy the party.
Further to this, adults love photo booths too!
- Share the hilarity and add another layer of excitement to the photos your attendees take with your high spec photo booths for hire Sydney and add thousands of spectators to their audience via social media. Silly photos are worth more than one thousand words –and maybe even more Facebook Likes. Quite often it’s the comments on a photo that really make it resonate!
Making your photo booths easily shareable with social media integration will also make your event seem cooler, and it could attract more attendance the next time around!
- Create Another World! Why not take your event even further (and out of this world) with fun and exciting photo backdrops that your guests can choose from.
If you are already hosting a really fun party that has a theme, the photos taken can become an extension of that. From the Wild West to Moulin Rouge, outer space and even Sponge Bob –most photo booth hires like those of We are Blue Steel will allow you to choose your own fun and exciting photo booth backdrop.
Throw in some props and you’ve got a party within the party!
- Lastly, photo booths give your guests fun alternatives to dancing when they need a little break (or an excuse to walk away from a boring conversation!). Spicing up your party with a photo booth hire provides a whole lot more options for your guests to relax and unwind.
