Photo booths are lots of fun, but it can get stressful thinking of flattering poses to strike. In this article, we share some common mistakes you might be unaware of, as well as tips to help you rock your next photo shoot!
Tilt Your Glasses down
If you wear glasses, you would know the pain of seeing the blinding green reflection your glasses give off when you take flash photos. The secret to preventing this from happening is simple, all you need to do is to tilt your head down slightly, but not all the way! You may practice this in the mirror beforehand to ensure it looks natural.
Alternatively, you could also take off your glasses for the photo. Don’t worry about not being able to see very clearly for the moment. As long as you look in the general direction of the camera, your pictures will still turn out great!
Tilt the props down
Another common issue people face at instant photo booths is having their cardboard props being whitewashed. This is due to the light from the flash bouncing off the cardboard cut-outs. The fix is simple, just tilt your prop down just a little. Trust us, it makes a difference!
Stand at the Optimal Position
Many people who come to the instant photo booth don’t realize how much their standing position affects the quality of the prints. The camera’s optimal position is altered to the position of the footprint sticker. That is where the best lighting and focus would be.
If you stand too far forward, you would appear overexposed and out of focus for being too close to the flash. Too far back, and you might find yourself “disappearing” as the photo would be underexposed. To get the perfect picture, you will need the flash to be able to nicely graze your face. Always listen to the photo booth assistant when he/she tells you to stand at a certain spot!
Think about your poses before entering Photo Booths
If being spontaneous is not your thing, never go into a photo booth not knowing what poses to strike. Have at least one or two up your sleeve, you wouldn’t want a boring looking printout!
Don’t look at The Screen, Look at The Camera Lens
This is most probably the most common mistake at photo booths. Everyone wants to look good, but once you position yourself nicely in the center of the screen don’t forget to look back up into the camera lens! Otherwise, it would be obvious that you were not looking at the camera.
Don’t Leave Your Prints Behind at Photo Booths!
After having fun posing for your pictures, don’t forget to collect your prints! There are times when people run off right after taking their photos at the photo booth without collecting their prints. We believe that these are memories that you should cherish and keep, so we would not want any of our guests to leave their prints behind.
