PHOTO BOOTH BASICS:
We thought we would post a quick article on some photo booth basics of photo booths and some details. Just to give everyone a quick overview of key points. So here goes…
The modern concept of photo booth with (later) a curtain originated with Anatol Josepho (previously Josephewitz), who had arrived in the U.S. from Russia in 1923. with the first photo booth appearing 1925 on Broadway in New York City. For 25 cents, the booth took, developed and printed 8 photos, a process taking roughly 10 minutes. In the first six months after the booth was erected, it was used by 280,000 people. The Photomaton Company was created to place booths nationwide. On March 27, 1927, Josepho was paid $1 million and guaranteed future royalties for his invention.
We love wikipedia. Some history of Photo Booths in this link
Both black and white and colour photo booths are common in the US. However in Europe the colour photo booth has almost entirely replaced black and white booths. Newer digital booths now offer the customer the option of whether to print in colour or in black and white. This is what we have at welovebooths.co.uk. Most modern photo booths use video or digital cameras instead of film cameras and are under computer control (of course!). Some booths can also produce stickers, postcards, or other items with the photographs on them, rather or as well as simply a strip of pictures. These often include an option of novelty decorative borders around the photos. We can personalise all images for you tailored to your exact requirements.

STAND OR SIT?
Traditionally photo booths contain a seat or bench designed to seat the one or two patrons being photographed. The seat is typically surrounded by a curtain of some sort to allow for some privacy and help avoid outside interference during the photo session. The photo booth will take a series of photographs which can be identical or different with unique backdrops. Before each photograph, there will be an indication, such as a light or a buzzer, that will signal the patron to prepare their pose. After the last photograph in the series (typically between 3 and 8) has been taken, the photo booth begins developing the print — a process that used to take several minutes in the old “wet chemistry” booths, but is now typically accomplished in about 10 seconds with digital technology. The prints are then delivered to the customer. Typical dimensions of these prints vary. The classic and most familiar arrangement from the old style photo booths is four pictures on a strip about 40 mm wide by 205 mm long; digital prints tend to have a square arrangement of 2-4 images.
These days, stand is all the vogue!

GLOBAL POPULARITY OF PHOTO BOOTHS
As digital cameras, compact photo printers, and flat screen computer monitors became widely available in the early 2000s, people connected these together using a personal computer and software and created their own photo booths. Entrepreneurs began renting machines built along these lines at weddings and parties and the idea spread. From 2005 to 2012, interest in the UK for photo booth rentals grew significantly. By 2016 more people were searching for photo booth rentals than DJ rentals in all of the UKs largest cities. Photo booth rentals have also become popular in other countries such as Canada, Australia, and the US. So far in 2016 there is an average of 226,000 monthly searches for a photo booth globally, this is has risen by 48.9% since 2015 (In the UK alone this is nearly 20,000 searches a month)

A variety of props keeps things fun and guests interested. Don’t know where to look for props? Start with your own closet: that furry scarf you got as gift but never wore, those silky gloves that belonged to your great aunt and that fascinator you wore to the races can all become kitschy props. Ask your friends to scavenge their own closets for similar items. 1920s-Inspired Photo Booth Props Next, hit up thrift stores, vintage shops and estate sales in your area. Look for objects like cameras, musical instruments, telescopes, binoculars, magnifying glasses, old ship and car steering wheels, picture frames, necklaces, clocks, tea cups, telephones, suitcases, vintage pieces, books, antlers and pretty much anything that is large enough to show in a photograph. To narrow down the prop options, choose a theme or era to work from. A chalkboard or dry-erase board lets guests create their own custom messages.
