Traditional photo booths with printed 3-panel low-res photos are so five years ago. Up until recently, the most exciting component of a photo booth at your corporate event was to see your boss wear a crazy cowboy hat and a tutu while taking his/her picture. Here, KONCEPT EVENTS delivers the 3 hottest photo booth trends for 2015 that are guaranteed to make your next event stand out!
1) PHOTOTAP: Instant Photo Sharing
PhotoTap’s premise is simple, yet incredibly multi-functional. Nobody is new to sharing your event photos on Social Media, but PhotoTap utilizes the latest in RFID tech and cuts out the middle man of asking client’s to login every time they want to post images at an event. Guests get a chipped, branded bracelet when they enter the event and are asked which Social Media channel or email address they’d prefer pictures to be posted or sent to. Then, after the roaming professional PhotoTap photographers takes a picture guests simply tap their bracelet on the photographer’s PhotoTap wristband and the pictures are instantly emailed or posted. Plus, you get access to data on engagement, re-tweets, and ‘likes’ that these pictures generated.
2) SELFIE MIRROR – “But first, let me take a selfie”
One of the few universal truths in the 21st century is that people like to look good in their pictures. Enter, the “Selfie Mirror” – a mirror that takes your picture! Prompted by a flash and a “selfie” graphic that flashes across the mirrored screen, subjects have time to strike the perfect pose before the shot is taken. After guests take their best set of selfies (or groupies), they can edit and then choose to print, post on social media, or email the images instantly. With the Selfie Mirror, gone are the hundreds of wasted prints that are inevitably tossed in the trash. Instead, why not have a photo booth that makes people look and feel their best?!
3) Photo Canvas – Your Event as a Mini Work of Art
Let your guests channel Marilyn Monroe with a one-of-a-kind, printed mini photo canvas, inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous prints! These canvases are the perfect mesh of retro, with the fun Warhol filters; and modern, with the on-site printing tech. Once the canvas is printed (it only takes about 3 minutes), the photographer displays the canvas on an adorable mini easel that other party guests can check out for inspiration before picking up and taking their image home as a memory of the event!
