All your props are in order, but what about the setup? Who will take the pictures? Maybe one of your friends wants to volunteer to be the photographer for the night… That’s all fine and dandy, but what about group pictures? Here’s a simple setup to make your photo booth (almost) hands-free.
Camera/Tripod – After the photo booth area is decorated and props are ready, set up the tripod and camera. Take a couple test shots to make sure everything looks good.
Shutter Release (aka Remote Release) – This handy gadget allows you to take photos without actually touching the camera. Just like a remote for the TV, you can take a picture while in front of the camera. If you don’t have one already, make sure you get the wireless kind! These run about $10 at an electronics store or on Amazon, but just make sure you get one that is compatible with your camera!
Flash – Adequate lighting is very important to snapping photos. How do you keep pictures from being blurry? Use your camera’s flash or add lights to the photo area. Keeping the camera on the tripod will also help.
Have fun creating memories in your own holiday photo booth!
