5 Tips for Photobooth Posing!

Monday, May 5th, 2014

We all know the potential fun to be had in a photobooth, whether traditional or the new, open-air style. A group of people get together, in front of a camera, with some random props…how could you NOT have fun? But do a quick search on photobooth pictures over the years and what you start to realize is that a large majority of them look the same. And that’s understandable because, for the most part, when you get in a photobooth, everyone expects to make a few faces, wear a few random articles of clothing, and pose!

Now we’re not doubting that people have plenty of fun doing that, or that the resulting pictures are fun to look at. But what if you could have an experience that was not only fun and produced decent pictures, but were unique and creative?! So that even people who don’t personally recognize the people in the picture respond with, “wow, that’s such a great idea!” or “wow, the timing there is perfect!”?

The following are a list of 5 simple tips that we’ve compiled after many, many events of running a photobooth, aiming each time to come out with images that would go beyond the traditional photobooth pictures and have the extra “wow” factor. If you’re going to be running a DIY photobooth, hopefully this helps you get the most out of your guests as you man the booth. If you’re just reading this in case you happen to pop into a photobooth yourself sometime soon, hopefully this gets your creative juices going too! Here goes:

1. Pay attention to DETAILS

When running a photobooth for an event, say a wedding, with several hundred guests and a limited number of props, its only a matter of time before guests run out of things to do with the props available. You’ll get your fair share of fun pictures with those and the typical poses (and that’s fine!) but to take it to another level, keep your eyes peeled for details in your surroundings. This includes on people (clothing, accessories, etc) as well as at your venue/location (centerpieces, table settings, utensils, etc)

For example, in a group of people, do they have something in common? Maybe a color scheme? a similar or consistent article of clothing? all guys, wearing ties? all ladies, with fancy shoes? does everyone have their cellphone on them? or even something as simple as a wallet? take advantage of that! Try to use them in non-standard ways for great pictures. Use them to tell a story! (more on that in #4)

the tie mafia!

If you’re at a wedding or birthday party, are there items that the host has placed in the decorations that can be used as props in interesting ways? This is often a great way to, not only use these “props” creatively, but also to add personalized details to the pictures that will remind the hosts of details–such as decorations & party favors–that they spent so many hours preparing for.

we’re your biggest fans!

When you keep your eyes peeled for details like this, everything and everyone becomes a potential prop and idea for a great capture!

2. Run with their PERSONALITY

When you direct people in a photobooth, its important to take into consideration the personality of the people you’re working with. Are you younger or older? outgoing or a little more shy? are they athletic (enough, say, to jump or even throw people)?

Some people are just bundles of creative energy and you’re able to just kind of sit back and watch the great ideas flow! Others need a little bit more input (or even prodding) to open up with some crazier ideas. Start by letting them try and idea/pose or two on their own and get a feel for what kinds of things they produce.

boys with attitude!

Try offering little suggestions to what they’ve got (more intense facial expressions, more believable actions, more interaction, less pose-y, etc). If they seem open to direction, break out some of your crazier ideas! For this purpose, we’re constantly brainstorming ideas for new poses, stories, and ideas, so that when we come across the right kind of group in a photobooth, we’re ready to go!

hey, check me out!

Remember that great, crazy picture ideas are somewhat relative. If you can get normally reserved grandparents to open up and get just a little goofy, success! By taking the personalities that come and helping them to kick it up a notch (even if it is literally only one, little notch!), chances are you’ve got yourself a shot that will be remembered! Who knows, they may even come back for more!

3. Take advantage of NUMBERS

With the new photo booth designs these days (especially with open-air photobooths), its not uncommon to be able to squeeze in anywhere from 1 to even 15 people in a single photobooth shot! The question now is how to most effectively use those numbers for great shots! A few suggestions:

Smaller groups and couples (2-5 people) offer a lot of potential for simple, clear, fun interaction between people. Its easy to direct them saying, “I want you to do this to her!” or “Everyone jump on the count of 3!”

Medium sized groups (6-10 people) starts to get a little trickier. Action shots, such as everyone jumping, are more out of the question due to the potential of injury or an unwanted kick to the leg! Rather, shots that direct your attention to a specific person, such as “Everyone cheer for the bride and groom while they kiss!” or “Carry this person and act like he’s incredibly heavy!” are what makes the picture “WOW” worthy.

oh, my heroines!

Large sized groups (11-15 people) are definitely a challenge, but well worth it when everyone in the group is willing to get a little crazy and all participate in on the fun. This is where expressive faces and everyone doing the same thing come in handy. “Everyone stick out your hands and say ‘ROAR!’” or “Stick out your tongue and try to touch your noses,” all make for hilarious shots that make the group want to do more!

we are teens, hear us roar!

4. Don’t pose, DIRECT

Another way to put it is, “don’t just take a picture, tell a story!” While random action can be lots of fun, often the best photo booth pictures are the ones where your eye is drawn into some action or flow of thought and leads you through the picture as you follow the “storyline”.

Imagine yourself the director of a very simple movie. Rather then tell each person exactly what gesture to make, what facial expression to have, with the exact timing, try giving them a “story” or “concept” that they can take and run with. Then, all you need to do is capture at the right time! (here’s where digital technology helps!)

A couple simple examples, “You three kids are really mad at your parents, so mad in fact that things are about to get out of hand. And you parents are helpless, scared, cowering! Ready? Go!”

You three kids are really mad at your parents, so mad in fact that things are about to get out of hand. And you parents are helpless, scared, cowering! Ready? Go!

“Ok guys, I want you to pretend like you’re on a rollercoaster, about to go down a steep drop! Ready, go!”

Ok guys, I want you to pretend like you’re on a rollercoaster, about to go down a steep drop! Ready, go!

“Alright, I want you to let out your years of frustration by slapping her, while you are just shocked that this is happening before your eyes!”

5. Show me the ACTION!

Just because a picture captures a single moment in time doesn’t mean that picture itself needs to be of a static pose! You can never go wrong with injecting a bit of action into a shot! Whether its faking a move out of a video game,

faking a move out of a video game

tossing a poor guy high up in the air,

tossing a poor guy high up in the air

or even the tried-and-true, coordinated jump,

getting people moving around with some fun action always brings up the energy and fun, and leaves you with some great captures!

So there you have it, 5 simple tips for posing people in a photobooth. This list definitely isn’t comprehensive, but hopefully it gets you started with some different ideas! If you’ve got some ideas that we didn’t mention, or would just like to share some of your crazy photobooth pictures, we’d love to hear them! Send them to info@magicmomentphotobooth.com!

And of course, if after looking through these suggestions, you’d like to leave the posing for YOUR event up to the pros, we’d love to hear from you about being a part of your special day!

The wedding proposal – the new big hit

The wedding proposal – the new big hit

SO AUNTY, SO WHAT?
By JUNE H.L. WONG

Popping the question to a girl is no longer an intimate affair but a spectacle with a big supporting cast and better yet, an audience.RELIEF. Horror. That’s how two guys, a middle-aged bloke and a teenager of 18, reacted to the news of yet another guy going to elaborate lengths to propose to his lady love.

As reported in The Star last week, 27-year-old assistant manager Joshua Wong got 33 of his friends to dance to a medley of songs at a shopping mall in Petaling Jaya before he popped the question to his girlfriend.

It took Wong some three weeks to plan the gambit and that was after he couldn’t post his proposal on a huge billboard from across her office because of logistical problems.

When I read out the story to the family, the older guy rolled his eyes in disdain. But the relief was obvious. After all, he didn’t have to go through much trouble when he decided to get hitched almost 30 years ago. To me.

In fact, as far as this aunty remembers, he didn’t go through any trouble at all. Not one tiny bit because he never proposed. After dating for several months, he just assumed I would marry him and darn it, he assumed right.

He didn’t even ask my father’s permission to marry me. Thinking back, he really had it easy.

At least I had an engagement party but that was only because my dad insisted on one. And it was kept small and private. We took some photos and that was it.

But with that great game changer of our times, the Internet, the world — to paraphrase Shakespeare — has become one big stage where everyone can be players. All they have to do is load up their act on YouTube.

Without this facility to play to a global audience, such grandstanding proposals, like a lot of other antics and funny stuff, including Gangnam Style, would not have caught on so rapidly. Now it seems a bloke must really go the extra mile to ask for a girl’s hand. A romantic dinner before going down on bended knee is no longer enough. There must be a huge build-up before that ring-in-a-box moment.

What’s more, in those “Best wedding proposal ever” and “Top 10 (or 25) best wedding proposals” videos on YouTube, a key element in making it “best” is that the proposal must be very public, witnessed by a crowd of strangers.

Hence, many proposals involve flash mobs or a captive audience in airplanes, sports stadiums and cinemas to cheer on the guy and clap and whistle when she says yes.

And, by the way, the girls all react in the same way — they shriek, laugh, cry, cover their mouths with their hands and say “Oh my God, Oh my God!”

Oh what pressure! No wonder my husband is relieved he didn’t have to do any of that. But who would have guessed proposals would get so extravagant and ostentatious in such a short time?

Which is why the teenager mentioned at the beginning of this article blanched at the news. He’s thinking, to his horror, he might have to hire a space ship or something equally spectacular when he proposes in say 10 or 15 years’ time. My poor son! Should he start saving up for a proposal for his unknown bride? Should I?

While one part of me thinks such big gestures are sweet, another part finds it somewhat disconcerting.

That’s because Asians, especially the young ones, have cottoned on so fast and morphed from being inscrutable and private to becoming wide open books on their personal lives.

Where once we would be too shy, embarrassed or ashamed to share certain things about our lives, the opposite is now true.

Young people probably see it as their being more open and asserting their right to be seen and heard and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. And by all means have fun and spread the joy around.

But what worries me is the aggressive blare-all attitude that is also becoming prevalent. Many young people seem shockingly unaware of what is nuance, decorum or what constitutes a sense of decency in what they say and do on Facebook and other forms of social media. And that surely is a bad thing.

If we need a lesson on how to share in tasteful and delightful show-and-tell, then I recommend a proposal by a guy called Isaac Lamb to his girlfriend Amy Finkel. It’s done publicly but there are no strangers to witness it. It is touching, clever and funny without being in-your-face or showy for the sake of it.

It’s titled “Best marriage proposal ever?” For this Internet moment, I think so. Photo Booth Rental Rockford.

Top 10 Tips to Plan Your Wedding Your Way

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Photo Booth Chicago Wedding Receptions

 

Summer means weddings, whether planning your own or participating in one. June is the most popular month of the year to get married, with August coming in a close second.

My August wedding was almost 20 years ago, yet the memories of planning and preparation are still as vivid as the event itself. The legal ceremony requires little else besides the license, bride, groom, officiant and witnesses, but from there anything goes and is indicative of the personal creativity and budget constraints of the couple getting married.

Tip 1: Make it meaningful. 
Remember that your commitment to love each other is the reason for this occasion, so make it meaningful to you as a couple. Music has been an important part of our life, so we gave it an integral place in our special day. Our flower girl (groom’s sister) even danced her way down the aisle dropping the dried flower petals I had saved from the many bouquets my fiance had given me.

Tip 2: Name your price. 
Decide the amount you want to spend and how much you can comfortably afford; then create a budget that works each desired element into the total cost. The average wedding in the United States costs almost $30,000. But just because you can spend that much, doesn’t mean you should. Some couples prefer to use that money for a car or a down payment on a house. Our friends and family members offered their skills as photographer, caterer, musician, event planner, florist and seamstress. The talented participation of our loved ones enabled us to have a memorable day on a smaller budget and surrounded us with a supportive camaraderie.

Tip 3-6: Determine who, what, when, and where. 
Each of those four integral words will need distinctive determinations for each option you include in your events. Attendants, attire, parties, ceremony, reception and other related activities bring a myriad of choices. For us it was worth it. It was fun to have interesting aspects reflect our personalities.

Sixteen years ago, we were part of our close friends’ gorgeous garden wedding. At their rehearsal dinner we surprised them with a quasi-rap song we wrote just for them. To this day, mutual friends chant the memorable refrain of “Hey, hey, hey, it’s your wedding day….”

Tip 7: Discuss the event without discord. 
Difficult decisions will need to be made, and differences will surface. Tensions can escalate further when the desires and finances of parents are involved. Choosing the guest list, as well as the wedding party, can be very stressful and may determine the size of the event, which affects cost and location. Focus on what really matters to each of you and keep a healthy perspective. My husband and I have very different ideas so we agreed early on to find solutions that we would both be comfortable with. The enormity of details and the stress of making decisions have led many to elope! Take a deep breath and read these top 10 tips again.

Tip 8: Aspire to be inspired. 
Go surfing!! Well, it is summer, and beach ceremonies are popular events…but I really mean, surf the web. Cedar hope chests were commonly given to girls as a coming-of-age gift in the 1950s and ’60s. Precious items were collected and stored in hopes of a glorious wedding day and married life. Today, the modern equivalent is Pinterest, the online site where men and women freely save, sort, and swoon over ideas, images and information organized by category and personalized with a pin-it feature. Social media has expanded our sphere of reference, and you can like Weddings on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Trends come and go and wedding styles are no exception. From elopements to destination weddings, classic traditions blend with new ideas. Sending out electronic Save the Dates has become a standard practice that was unheard of two decades ago, even by regular mail. Martha Stewart’s huge Tiffany blue wedding book was the definitive go-to resource when I was planning, along with a few classic bridal magazines. Now Martha has a site devoted to all things weddings, as does world-renowned event planner Colin Cowie. LifeTips has more than 1,000 tips in 26 different wedding-related categories.

Tip 9: Stay organized. 
Planning and preparation will keep your dream wedding from becoming a nightmare. Numerous websites offer free online tools. Even if you hire a wedding planner, detailed lists are a must. Some brides begin a checklist as early as 16 months in advance. Emergencies may happen even with the best-laid plans, but serendipity can be found in the midst of a mess. Minutes before I walked down the aisle, my heirloom lace wedding dress (groom’s grandmother’s) needed a last-minute repair. The private time my mom and I shared as she calmly mended it was precious.

Tip 10: Enjoy your wedding, your way. 
This is your time to sparkle and shine! The intense planning and preparation and the many events from engagement announcements to parties and showers all lead to the ceremony and reception that begin your life as a married couple. We coordinated a wedding weekend itinerary with out-of-town friends and family before we left for our honeymoon. Bask in every exciting moment; then relax together at a romantic resort, bed and breakfast, upscale inn or boutique hotel.

Is Wearing Color the "New" White for Weddings?

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Photo Booth Wedding Dresses

 

This week I wanted to talk about colors for weddings and what better way to start off by talking about what to wear on your wedding day.  Out with the old, in with the new…who says you have to wear white on your wedding day?  The days of just bridesmaids wearing “color” down the aisle is becoming obsolete.  For the upcoming 2012-2013 wedding season, designers have created dresses for brides in different colors and no longer the traditional white… from green to red and even black.

It has been customary for a bride to wear white on her wedding day.  However, these days brides are choosing to wear what they want, whether it is white, bold colors (red, burgundy or black), neutral colors (ivory or pink), or a short or long gown — many brides are opting out of the traditional way.

It is common for different cultures to wear different colors other than white on their wedding day, but not common for American culture.  “Old school” parents, grandparents, etc., may have a problem with their daughter and/or granddaughter wearing anything but white on her wedding day because it has always been tradition to wear white.

Vera Wang’s 2012 Fall Collection offered black  gowns and her 2013 Spring Collection offers bold colors for the “modern” bride.  Below are pictures from the Vera Wang 2012 Fall and 2013 Spring bridal collections.

I love these red bold colors and can’t wait to see what bold color Vera Wang has created for her 2013 Fall collection.  Would you be so bold to wear any of these colors on your wedding day?

Carry A Photo Booth In Your Pocket For Free With Photoautomat

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Photoautomat (Free) by Stepcase is a simple photo booth app for your iPhone.

It seems that we just can’t have enough apps that allow us to take fun photos. While we already have apps likeIncredibooth and Pocketbooth, Stepcase has stepped in with their own entry in the market.

On launch, you’ll get a beautiful main screen that tries to mimic the actual photo booth experience. You’ll see a small preview of what the front-facing camera is seeing in the corner, with a preview of the different film styles used underneath this preview. Finished photo strips will be “delivered” into the box underneath the film styles, and on the right will be a curtain that you slide to take photos.

 

2012-06-08 12.19.49Since Stepcase also has their own social network to share photos, you can log in to your Steply account (or create a free account) by tapping on the “S” at the bottom of the left pane. I wish that the developers added a bit more contrast to that and the settings button, since they both are dark and blend in very well to the faux wooden background.When you go in to the photo taking mode, you get a screen that features a viewfinder in the middle, along with eye level indicators to let you know where your eyes should be lining up. To capture the images, just tap on “Start,” which will trigger the app to snap four photos in quick succession.

This was the part of the app that I did not care for too much. When you hit Start, there is no visual or audio indicator of when the app begins taking photos. You’ll only know when you see the first flash on the screen to indicate the first photo has been taken.

Another thing is the fact that there is little delay between snaps — I tried to quickly do a different pose, but sometimes the app would catch me blinking instead. This is frustrating for a photo booth app, especially when the competition have indicators and more delay in between shots so you have more time to prepare the next silly pose.

When you are done with the four shots, the app will deliver them to you in a photo strip. You can then save it or upload it to the Steply network, or go back and take another series of captures. Unfortunately, there is no way to share to another social network, such as Twitter or Facebook, directly from the app. I believe this is done to promote the Steply network.

 

2012-06-08 12.23.23Remember when I mentioned that there were other different film styles? You can switch between the four different films at any time, but it’s not done in an intuitive way. Rather than have the option to change the film on the screen where you take the photo, you have to go back to the main screen and tap on the settings button, which is in the very bottom left corner. From there, you are able to see a preview of what the film will look like, and select it. Then swipe on the curtain to enter the booth again with that film.It’s a rather annoying and tedious way to do this, especially when compared to other apps, which may feature a dial on the camera screen that allows for easy switching of film. I can only hope that this is changed in the future.

Since Photoautomat is free, and the competition are paid apps, expect to see some ads. Fortunately, they only appear after a photo strip is done, so it won’t interfere with the actual photo-taking process.

I think for the time being, I will stick with Pocketbooth or Incredibooth for my photo booth needs. However, Photoautomat is free, so it’s still worth checking out — you get what you pay for, though. Photo Booth Oak Brook

Wedding planning: Pinterest or professionals?

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

 

 

Images of pink flowers are set between shots of layered cakes and breezy white gowns on Maia McDonald’s “Wedding Inspiration” board on Pinterest. Their presence surprised the freelance graphic designer, who is planning her upcoming wedding and originally thought she wanted nothing to do with the girly color.“I started pinning stuff and pink started showing up a lot, and I realized, ‘Oh maybe I do want pink and I was lying to myself.’ ”Those visual cues are a hallmark of the social media Web site, which allows users to pin images to online bulletin boards. The weddings category is among the most popular on the site, which overall pulled in 17.8 million unique visitors in February — up 52 percent from 11.7 million in January, according to comScore.

With legions of brides (and grooms) finding inspiration all on their own, will Pinterest replace the professionals? A concern reverberating through wedding planning circles is that those inspiration boards could diminish interest in their services.

But Fabienne Laveau, owner of the planning company Wedding Muse and a speaker on wedding planning with Pinterest, says the fear is largely unwarranted.

“I don’t think Pinterest is having this [negative] impact; in fact, I can see more of a case people are looking at all of these things and saying ‘I need a wedding planner.’ ”

She credits all that pinning with an increased interest in her Web site and uses it as a tool for marketing her brand. And just as inspiration boards showed McDonald she wasn’t afraid of pink, Laveau has found they can help her decipher exactly what a woman is imagining.

“You really get very little info from the brides. A lot of it is really intuition-based,” she says. “I will leave a meeting and just throw some pictures on to a board that I think reflects what I think I heard them say, and it’s really just the best way I have come up to communicate.”

All that sharing can mean exposure for wedding planners and vendors, and traffic for wedding blogs. Style Me Pretty, a luxury wedding site that features real ceremonies, vendors and inspiration, reports a rise in visitors from Pinterest, now its leading source of referral traffic next to Google search. But plenty of pinners with a do-it-yourself mentality aren’t looking for professional help — they’re just looking for the ideas.

Newlywed Christine Daigle Weiss used Pinterest and other DIY sites to plan nearly her entire wedding on a strict budget and short timetable.

“There were some things that I can’t even imagine paying anyone to do, like a basket of flip flops for guests,” says the Charlotte resident.

She also bought unfinished wood from craft stores for signs and old bird cages for card holders, and she had a friend who knew how to sew repurpose a small pillow for the ring bearer — all projects inspired by images she had seen on Pinterest.

“If I had no idea to go from, I wouldn’t have anything to make. I think that is the best aspect of Pinterest. There are some things I never even thought of doing.”

Though Pinterest can seem like a vast reserve of free information on everything wedding, Laveau doesn’t believe there will be a rush of women constructing their celebrations from start to finish.

“I think Martha Stewart and other do-it-yourself sites have been much more responsible for people having the idea that DIY is easy.”

Katie Martin, chief executive of Elegance & Simplicity, Inc. and editor-in-chief of Eco-Beautiful Weddings, is similarly skeptical of DIY projects that dominate Pinterest feeds.

“I’m not a big fan because I think people get the misconception that they are going to save money,” she says. “You can end up buying all kinds of gadgets. It’s very rare that I re-pin them.”

Martin makes a point of pinning things she likes and believes are valuable ideas, in addition to photos from nuptials her company has designed.

The inventive ways that brides and planners alike have begun using the Web site is only the beginning, she says.
