Should you be scheduling an event and have been undertaking analysis on renting a photobooth, prospects are substantial that you have occur across two different types of photobooth types: (1) the standard (or vintage) fotobudka warszawa and (two) the open-air style and design, generally known as the “CrazyBooth”. The 2 are comparable in strategy, but in execution, they get wholly unique approaches.
About the a single hand you might have the classic, “box” photobooth which we’re all common with. It truly is made (or assembled) into an all-in-one-box that holds the attendees, fires the flash, takes the image, and prints out the strips right away. No outside inputs are required (in addition to the friends them selves!). However, you’ve got the open-air photobooth. This setup is like a portable, mini pictures studio, consisting of a portable studio backdrop program, studio lighting strobes & modifiers, camera on tripod with remote control, LCD TV for viewing shots immediately, and laptop & printer for printing out photo strips. This set up requires an attendant or two.
Now, obviously both designs each have their respective strengths and weaknesses, and at the end of the day, BOTH will be for your guests a great source of entertainment and leave you with tons of fun captures of the people who came to your celebration. The goal of this article is not to knock the tried-and-true basic photobooth that we all grew up loving to play with at the mall, but to offer 3 simple reasons how the new, modern open-air style will take a great, common idea and adds TONS of potential! So without further ado:
REASON #1: MORE SPACE = MORE PEOPLE!
The BIGGEST advantage of the open-air design is that there is more space available! Where the standard photobooth has a footprint of roughly 40? x 60?, open-air photobooths can take up as much space as you’d like, with a typical set up being about 8′ x 10′ (96? x 120?)! Now we are going to be focusing on all the positives of having extra strength, but it needs to be said that the obvious downside to more space is that not all venues can accommodate the space requirements and so for this reason, the open-air style is not for every occasion!
But for those that CAN handle the extra space requirements, the first positive is that the greater space allows for larger groups of people! No more having to decide who gets to be in the big group picture and who has to be left out. No more worrying about faces being blocked as you cram the box as full as you possibly can (and then some!). Because the open-air photobooth is basically a mini-photo studio, you can fit as many people as you like that are able to stand in front of the backdrop! Seeing 14 people (and even more!) fit comfortably into a photograph is a very common thing! And of course, when you have got that many people together in front of a camera, you just know some crazy things are going to happen!
REASON #2: MORE SPACE = MORE CREATIVE POTENTIAL!
Not only does the extra space allow you to include more people, another huge advantage of having so much space is that you now have creative possibilities that you simply don’t have when stuck in a traditional box booth. The extra space allows you to “think outdoors the box”…literally! Action scenes! groups of people jumping! throwing people in the air! telling a story through your shot! All these are now possible because of the wide-open space that you may have available to you in the open-air style photobooth.
