Why don't more photo booths have real-time uploads?

I want to talk to you briefly about our newest product development - real-time uploading. We like to call it Live Sharing.

 

For us, it was essential because it would not only create as much value for our clients’ events as possible, but truly set us apart from all other photo booth or photo lounge services.

 

I’m excited about it for a few reasons:
  • Technology is changing fast, letting you get your media (photos, in our case) as quickly as possible, and people love that. Any event you throw or go to should meet this demand. This, combined with social networks, make a more meaningful way to engage with and share your photos.

  • You can get your photos during whatever event you’re at to share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or whatever other social network you use. No tiny photo strips that only let you share your memories with a handful of people. And no logging into your social network to upload photos at a photo booth kiosk!

  • Nobody else in DFW (that I know of) has this capability.

 

As you probably know, you can take as many photos in a session that you want. So, whether you take 2 or 20 pix at once, all of your memories will be online in real-time, letting you move on to other things at the event (such as dancing to “Thriller”, or hitting up the bar). Nothing’s lamer than your group wanting to move onto something else, but you gotta stick around and log into Facebook to share your pix one at a time. Well, there’s probably lamer things, but you know what I mean. :)

 

Also, you can turn your photos into a slideshow by clicking “Style” at the top right of your photo, then clicking “Slideshow”. Then, you can pass around your phone and re-live the memories with your family and friends. Pretty cool!

 

If you're in the industry as an Event Planner, Catering Company, or otherwise, it may be difficult to know what to say when a bride, in particular, wants their photo booth to do photo strips. I recommend asking, "do you think that photo strips would be more meaningful to your guests than Live Sharing?" I've seen this open up clients to the idea quite well.

 

I know that once word spreads about it that more companies will try to figure it out, but we’re proud to have done it first. It took a lot of work from multiple contributors to develop the software, but it was worth it!

The 5 Best Photo Space Poses

Need some ideas for Photo Booth/Shoot poses, or just want something to laugh at? We've put together our favorite 5 poses.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Charlie's Angels

If you're in a pinch, it's always a good idea to nominate a Charlie and a few angels. Your group will love it, and so will the slideshow onlookers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Kiss

Kiss your significant other, your uncle...it's a good idea no matter who you do it to. Unless it's the DJ - he might get the wrong idea.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Get serious

When your friends are getting loco, sometimes it's best just to get stone-faced. It's just funny.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. The Pickup

Whether you're just picking up your significant other, or getting a team of picker-uppers to turn someone upside-down, this is THE choice to one-up pretty much everything that

anybody else has or ever will do at your event.

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. The Magnum


On a roll in the Photo Space with your friends, but ran out of poses? Even the most creative and
photogenic among us have been there. 

The solution? Pull out the Magnum. Who cares if someone makes fun of you for making the same face in 10+ shots? They're just jealous because you're really, really consistently sexy.
