Before setting up your camera to the default settings, make sure your physical booth set-up is perfect.
For a successful Photo Booth Experience, we required a clutter-free area (e.g. furniture, plants etc. moved), against a solid wall that is at least 10’x9′ (WxH) with no obstructions above (e.g. chandelier).
The booth will stand 6-7’ away from the backdrop and we need the surrounding area to be fairly open and clear to help with traffic/flow and safety. Simplified, we have a 10×10′ footprint with a 10′ vertical clearance.
Please ensure that this area has access to a power outlet. Because our set up is sensitive to the elements (rain, wind, sunlight, etc.) we require outdoor set ups to be fully covered and we will consider them on a case-by-case basis.
Guests in the photos should 2/3 of the frame. We should be able to use 3/4 of the body just above the knees and up. These photos are not head shots. Guest are typically dressed up at these events and want to show off their outfit.
Images must be appropriately framed without any portion of the backdrop or wall showing.
All printed images must be printed with good colour grade and alignment.
All cords must be NEATLY taped down using black gaffers tape
Photobooth equipment must be clean and not have any visible damage
No drinks, food or cellphones will be visibly left on the photo booth at any time during the event
All cases will be safely stored away from the booth area
Digital image has good margins, no white bleeds
DEFAULT CAMERA SETTINGS
Images must be adequately exposed (Default Camera settings for DSLR will be 1/125 Shutter speed, ISO 200-400, and Aperture 8.0) or what is best for a given location.
Tip: white backdrops usually lean more towards 400 iso
