if so...I want to talk about your workflow and presentation
automatic photobooths, or manned photobooths?
basically a preset lighting area. Not a real physical booth you sit in.
It's a pretty popular add-on now, just wondering if any of you guys do it.
did a "booth" at KDubb's reception in Austin.
here's one of the pics...
nice stuff Girth.
I want to set up a workflow where I pop off 4 shots per.
And then assemble them, drop them into a...???...indesign template?
What I want is the text and graphics in the frame, and an easy way to resize (if needed).
Sort of like this:
What I'm wondering about is the presentation workflow.
Is an indesign template the way to go? Or maybe just do it in photoshop?
Look up Jason Q Tran. He has the "Q Booth", which is basically what I set up... white background, camera on a stand, ring light, and a remote trigger w/ stupid props. He does a great job.
I had a photobooth at my wedding. It was pretty easy. They had it all setup in a booth. Picture quality wasn't awesome but it was definitely fun.
Everyone got 4 shots and they got a copy to keep for themselves and then a copy to paste into a big book in which they wrote a message to us. It now sits on my coffee table!
Haha we did the same exact thing
We're thinking about doing this for our wedding as well.
Apparently that's the rage, because I've gone to 2 weddings where they've done that. Pretty cool idea IMO.
yeah, I understand that. I was just wondering if you wanted something that would have someone standing there to take the pictures or if it would be automatic somehow.
We've done Lightroom photobooths with dual monitors and a long shutter release remote controlled by the person(s) having their photos taken.
What glass did you use for it?
This is a cool idea.
we've always done it with one of our guys (girl) running the booth.
I used to shoot tethered into LR, but I think I'm going to change it up for the next wedding.
The plan is:
- camera triggered with PW
- displayed on projector against wall
I want the photog free to interact/cue the guests, not be at the camera.
Don't like cables... too much tripping over stuff...people tend to get wacked out drunk at my weddings.
The projector...I used to shoot tethered to a 17" laptop, but even that was too small. I'm going with a big projector so everyone can see it from across the hall.
wifi teathering into express digital darkroom pro on windows laptop
printing on the spot using a mitsubishi dye thermal printer
its pretty damn easy
one wedding i went to had 4 photo booths haha
