This past year saw a lot of action our YouBooth photo booth.Â And weâ€™ve learned a lot from these events!Â We love distilling what these experiences have taught us and bringing new ideas to our clients.Â Some ideas are pretty high tech and probably require a technician (like us!), but others are easy and anyone can do them.
Our latest and best innovation for the YouBooth photo booth is our Social Media Portal.Â Weâ€™ve created a way that seamlessly allows everyone to email their YouBooth photos to anyone else, and to upload them to Facebook and Twitter.Â People LOVE this feature!Â The Social Media Portal makes sharing photos really easy and it extends the brand awareness for any corporate event.
The Social Media Portal requires a Wifi connection and our equipment.Â The portals attach to almost any table or counter â€“ the more portals you have, the better!Â Easy image sharing guarantees your event will be remembered.
Another technical addition for the YouBooth is projecting the images onto large screens in the room.Â People love to see their photos blown up on the wall â€“ for most of them this is as close as theyâ€™ll come to being in the movies!
Weâ€™ve incorporated some fun No Tech ideas into our YouBooth events as well.Â Props, of course, are always a hit.Â We used holiday-themed props again this year and they were more popular than ever.
Weâ€™ve also included dry erase boards and large markers, allowing people to create their own fun signs.Â The quick signs encourage creativity and yield some truly funny (and memorable) photos.Â Itâ€™s fun to use a question-answer format, with a question printed on the photo above the shot, and the answer written on the board.
And remember, the photo booth backdrop can make a world of difference.Â Some corporate clients use a standard step-and-repeat banner, but others (like Nintendo) take it a step further and use fantastic product artwork.Â Of course, flowers always have great affect, softening the overall effect and adding shots of color.Â
