How To Create A Simple Photo Booth
A little disclaimer: there is most likely no single best method to setup a picture booth. I've seen a variety of incredible setups all producing fantastic shots, so feel free to adjust these directions to your taste!
1. The Lights
We used a single AlienBee 800 put best beside the electronic camera in order to minimize shadows. We bounced party photobooth out of a white umbrella. AlienBees are some of the most economical lights on the marketplace and I feel it worked wonderfully for the booth.
2. The Background
Our lovely couple supplied the remarkable background. It was material they had actually purchased from an outlet. They had created a rather elaborate PVC structure to hold the fabric, however you could just as easily tape material or paper to the wall. Remarkably, you need much less material or paper than you would think. I think you would be more than safe with an area covering about 5 feet high and about 8-10 feet large. If you're super fancy, white seamless paper on a proper stand would be really beautiful. I 'd suggest attempting this out before investing a lot on equipment however, because you can do it really simply! Borrowing or renting paper and a stand are other choices.
3. The Triggers
We used PocketWizards to sync the light and the video camera, however given that you only need one light and it's incredibly close to the electronic camera you might easily just use the totally free sync cable that includes the light.
4. The Camera & Settings
The video camera was a Canon 5D on a tripod set to shoot big JPEGS (I didn't wish to process all the RAW submits!). We set our shutter at 1/200 (can't sync the light faster than that). The aperture was set at f/5.0 in order to get larger groups in focus. Aperture was set to 125 ISO, and the light was set to practically it's most affordable setting. We also set the electronic camera to all points focus, in order to hopefully take full advantage of the sharp shots considered that many individuals would remain in the shots and not all standing on the properly marked X.:P.
5. The Lens.
Remarkably we utilized a 50mm lens. I thought we would require a broader lens but the 50 simply completely covered the quantity of fabric background. If you had a larger background using a larger lens, shooting from farther away, or shooting vertically would all be fascinating alternatives to try out.
6. The Remote.
We used a cheap eBay remote to permit the visitors control of the video camera. I think this is a pretty excellent part of the image booth. You might attempt to man the booth yourself, however I believe you 'd get very various images from the ones they would take themselves. This is where the all points focus and the bigger aperture of f/5.0 help out. Update: These are the wireless remotes we now use which are more reputable and robust.
7. The Instructions.
Our couple had a sign up that welcomed visitors to get a good friend. I would probably also add where to stand, where to look (yes, some individuals looked at the light, not the camera) and how to utilize the remote.
8. The Props.
Costumes and props belong to the fun! Have a box next to the booth filled with things from the dollar shop and you cannot go incorrect.
If you can swing it bring a spare remote. It would draw to have the remote break half method through the shoot!
Make certain you bring diy wedding photo booth , you never ever understand how far the outlet might be.
Bring gaffers tape to tape down cords, and masking tape to define where people should stand.
You may wish to switch your cam to single shot mode. Or decreased burst mode. For some reason individuals want to hold the button down then you wind up
