So, you ask yourself, “What is the essence of a photo booth at my event, corporate function, wedding or party or even bar mitzvah?”, “Aren’t they archaic and old-fashioned in a world technologically advanced and filled with snapchat, Instagram and selfies, iPhones and filters?” “and if anything, what is new and trendy with photo booths besides the conventional features we already know?” Well, you know you should not overlook entertaining your guest. A good party of event is one in which the guests are entertained and satisfied.
Photo booths are classic, being that they’ve been around for a while now, are organic and have a semblance of a natural environment. Anyone who has used a Surrey photo booth hire (such as http://www.captivephoto.co.uk/surrey-photo-booth-hire) knows well enough that they are one of the best ways to capture fun moments with partners, family and friends, obtain printed copies and even have digital copies of the photos. Its exciting because you don’t know when the flash will come off and the most unexpected moments are captured. No wonder photo booth popularity keeps on increasing every year. To make things better, technology has helped make photo booths more popular, bringing in new trends each year. Trust me, people are getting more creative.
Here are some the latest trends in photo booths:
GIF Photo Booths that allow people capture their movements, dancing and singing skills and even a couple of karate flicks. Several photos can be pooled and then looped into one interesting GIF. Usually, GIF Booths take quick bursts of photos and turns them in to a 2-3 second looping clip. The clip can then be shared to your phone or social media. Some of them also come with slow-motion videos.
That is not all. Your GIF pictures can be animated and you have the cool options of making boomerang videos. Many of these Surrey photo booth hire can be customized and you can have almost any setting, theme or backdrop you want, be it super hero themed or whatever you want.
There are also boomerang GIF photos that take a quick burst of 15 or more photos, make a short 2 to 3 second GIF, plays forwards, and then backwards.
Then it gets better with social media sharing which simply connects the photo booth, via Wi-Fi, to your chosen social media accounts. “Social media has become a massive component of photo booths when it comes to brand exposure. Not only are booths creating an exciting experience for people, they are also fully integrated with social sharing and can capture online metrics.”, says Phillip Krynski, marketing manager at Hashtag, a company that produces Instagram printing kiosks. This amazing feature is done in real-time. You can choose what you want and then share those fun-filled and exciting moments seamlessly, on Facebook, Twitter and so on. For some of the available software, sharing on Instagram has additional features for instant hashtag, slideshows and printing.
There really is no end to the innovation and technology that can be incorporated into photo booths.
And what with the trends and popularity on the rise, we can only hope for better days for our much-adored photo booths.
