It is not difficult to set up a simple photo booth hire, which could be a popular attraction at meetings and functions and lots of fun as far as guests are concerned. There is no single correct method and there are a number of ways of setting up which can produce satisfactory photographs.
When it comes to the lights, a single standard light can be placed beside the camera to reduce the creation of shadows and light can be bounced of a white umbrella. Even affordable lights can work adequately if they are set up properly. The background can be created however, creativity dictates and could simply be a piece of fabric with a support to hold the fabric, but it can just as easily be created from paper attached to the wall. Far less paper or fabric is required than what many people think and the design can be as imaginative and creative as desired. Because of the simple setup, the camera can be synced with the light by using the free cord, which comes with the light.
The photo booth hire can use any camera which is available and the settings will depend on the choice of camera. The shutter setting should match the sync with the light and the aperture setting should enable capturing the larger groups in focus. The camera should be set at all points focus in order to capture sharp edges of all the people in the group. A 50 mm lens should suffice, and a wider lens is unnecessary unless the background is really large. There is scope to experiment with the different options which are available. The remote could be even a really cheap remote to permit the guests control of the camera. Providing guests with control eliminates the need for the booth to be manned. Because of the all points focus and the aperture setting, the results should be satisfactory. However, it should be noted that wireless remotes now available are more durable and dependable.
In the photo booth hire, it is always useful to have instructions printed out posted explaining to guests what has to be done. These could include directions on where to stand and look and how to use the remote control. All of this is simple but very helpful. The props and costumes add to the fun and should be available out of a box next to the booth so that people can help themselves. A spare remote would come in useful in case of a breakdown and extra extension cords will always be useful. Tape should be brought to be used on cords and to mark the places where people should stand. The camera must be switched to single shot mode because if somebody holds down the remote, the result is not a bunch of bad images.
