There are a number of things to consider when it comes to the photo booth and how to set up your shots (no not those shots). Many avoid going in because they are afraid of making a fool of themselves - others, not so much. Here at The Columbus Photo Booth Company we have seen it all so we thought we should break down a little lesson in photo booths. Wether you are the host, the guest or the party planner. Time to take notes. First things first:

Consider the group size. Though it is fun to put large groups together you may want to consider smaller segments. The feel of a crowded booth can be overwhelming and is not the same as a smaller group. Remember, go in more than once! Encourage your guests to go in throughout the evening with The Columbus Photo Booth Company - we offer unlimited photo strip printing for all events.

Second important thing to consider is this - choose your pose just right! Poses should make sense for your personality. Assign different positions to the group so there is a theme to every party photo. Serious face, silly faces, funny faces and even angry ones are the common poses we see all the time. And it never really gets old!

Lastly the props you choose should make sense to the theme of your event whether it be a wedding, graduation, anniversary, birthday or non profit event the most important thing to consider is this - YOU WILL BE LOOKING BACK ON THESE! If you are using props, make sure you have time to switch them out between. If you are planning on putting things off and on, we recommend that you probably do the hats last. You don’t have enough time to fix your hair between shots and you don’t want it to look crazy, or maybe you do - who knows. Key: Props will dictate your poses. Contemplate your options before going in, we are patient! Our
photo booth attendants are great and will help you plan before you go in if you’d like. You could even have one frame be all about people giving their props to other and then seeing the next set up with everyone with each new prop. One last thing to remember: GO MORE THAN ONCE! Just keep going in. We are willing and ready to plan your fun photo booth strip because you will keep these timeless photos in hand for a long time to come. So make it worth it!
