Photo booth is nowadays a lucrative business with its high demand among the users of all kinds. However, running a photo booth requires a bit of technical know-how and awareness of the changing trends in order to flourish.
In fact, an ideal photo booth consists of many movable components including the booth itself, camera, props and backgrounds, computer, touch screen, and last but not the least, a printer.
At the very first point while setting up a photo booth, you need to ensure the quality and performance of each of these individual components and once running, proper maintenance also has to be done.
* Photo booth maintenance
The primary aspect to consider in terms of photo booth maintenance is the upkeep of the booth itself by ensuring hygiene and safety. Most of the new-age photo booths are of dismantling type. You need to clean the booth components and store it in a dry safe place after each use. Cleaning and close inspection also has to be done each time before erecting the booth.
* Camera, computer, software, and printer
Digital cameras needed to be properly rolled from time to time in order to ensure sharpness and clarity of the pictures taken. Leans also needed to be cleaned each time before use. Computer and software used in photo booths also has to be updated from time to time.
Printer must be kept clean and the toner also needed to be checked each time. A back up of all these mechanical components needed to be kept handy, which too require proper maintenance even if not in active use.
Along with these vital components, it is also important to take good care of the curtains, backgrounds, props etc. which are used in photo booths. These needed to be kept clean and hygienic all the times, and also needed to be changed once in a while based on the latest trends and demands.
Pose it right
Standing in front of the camera is what we usually mean by giving a pose but there are many intricacies to it that have to be addressed. The body language that is displayed has to be orchestrated consciously by making every part of the body display its best demeanor. Do not pose straight with full body but turn at an angle of 45 degrees to the photographers so that the waistline appears to be shrunk slightly. Keep your arms, if its sleeveless, apart from the body to give an overall slender look.
The right pose would bring out the best in you.
