Picture Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of

We like to have features here at the blog where we check out photo strips from celebrities. That's right, it turns out they like photo booths like everyone else. Here's one from Ms. Alicia Keys. She says it best when she calls the booth a "picture jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do, now you're in the photo booth." Cheers to Alicia Keys and her fantastic pipes!

Famous Photo Booth Explosions #1

We're starting a new series here at the blog about the most famous photo booth explosions in history, and we're doing this for two reasons. One: everyone loves a good explosion. Two: not everyone likes to be in a good explosion so we want to lend some advice on photo booth safety as we know it can get fairly dangerous. In this first post we want to bring you a story that i'm sure you've been told before but may be nervous to recount. That's right, it's The Photo Booth Explosion of the Bulge. During the battle of the bulge between December 1944 and January 1945 there was a photo booth setup in the trenches for US troops to improve morale. The booth had been up and running for about two weeks when a German bomb took it out in an air raid. There 67 US troops in the booth at the time of the explosion, sad to say, none of them survived. This was one of the darkest days in history. The remnants of the booth still lay on the beach in Normandy.

Photo Booth Accident

I know that most of the time photo booths are a very light hearted topic, but not always. You count your blessing that you weren't in this photo booth at the time when an unexpected explosion occured somewhere in the lense of the Nikon D3100 camera that was taking the pictures. Things got hot quick and at least 78 people were injured and 43 (and counting) were killed. This picture portrays the aftermath of the blast pretty well, a man who witnessed the scene said, "I've seen explosions before, but nothing like this. I just hope they find everyone who is still missing and sue the person responsible for this." The PR representatives at Nikon said early this morning, "We're very grieved about this and our prayers go out the families of those affected in the blast. We're trying very hard to figure out what caused this burst of energy in the camera."

Frankie Muniz Takes The Booth By Storm

This month's edition of "Celebs in the Booth" features one of our favorite child actors (though he's a bit grown up now). It's Frankie Muniz. I found some great pictures of this kid that brought me back to my days as a child watching Malcolm in the Middle. Who knew he'd be such a hoot in the photo booth? He's a funny kid and i'm sure we all wish we could find ourselves in a photo booth with him one day. Here's to dreams coming true...

Freeman Taking Fotos

We know Morgan Freeman primarily as the voice of God in countless films. He is a serious and very smooth character with a witty sense of humor. But he becomes someone else when he sets foot in a photo booth. This man has stolen our hearts with these three photos and i think it'll do the same for you. When you think Morgan Freeman from now on, you'll know another side to the voice of God. Amen.

Buster... Booth?

Normally i would save something like this for our monthly edition of "Celebs in the Booth." But do you know what booth rhymes with? BLUTH! That's right. I think that's reason enough to post it before it's due time. Tony Hale is brilliant in front of the video camera, but also in front of the photo booth camera. Check out this photo and tell me in isn't funny!

We're always on the lookout for new ideas that can spice up your next event and make people say, "wow."

Gatsby-Style Backdrop

For all you kids out there having these Gatsby-style speakeasies, here's a few tips for backdrops if you're having a photo booth at the event. First off you don't have to spend much money to get a great backdrop. My two favorites are old paisley wallpaper or gold streamers. Both of these will do the trick with no dent in your budget. Here's a picture to show you that i know what i mean. Next time you have a speakeasy in Maryland, try these tips.

Elaborate Photo Booth Backdrops

Most of the time on this blog we try to show low-priced, affordable photo booth ideas. However, we would hate to ignore the rich who can afford some more elaborate backdrops. I recently came across this picture of a brilliant logo of a couple's initials used as a backdrop. It's like The Killers meet a wedding. It's a great look. If you can afford this kind of thing it's worth it. You won't forget a picture with a sick backdrop!

Out to Sea on a Photo Booth!

We've been hard at work here trying to find the cutest photo booth ideas for you! This week's winner is what i like to call "Out to Sea on a Photo Booth." Sure you can rent a photobooth, it's definitely a great option for a lot of events. But it's also simple enough to make your own backdrop, set up an iphone stand, and make your own photo booth if it's a casual event. If you decide to do so, this picture below is a great idea. It's nice having a themed backdrop because it acts as a prop itself and you cut down on the number props you provide. This way you only having to worry about providing a few sailor themed items, sit back, and let the booth do the work!

Personalized Photo Strip Logos

Most photo booth companies offer to customize the logo that prints at the bottom of photo booth strips. This is especially important for a wedding where you want to have the names of the couple and the date printed. While the company might make a decent logo, they'll often let you make your own and send it in. It's very simple to make a really cool logo using PhotoShop as well as some cheaper programs. If you're looking to have a photo booth at your wedding soon, think about making the logo yourself!

Beauty & the Booth

Maryland is a great state. "Why?" you might ask. I would be quick to reply "Because we are home to the city that never sleeps... Annapolis." Day and night there is city life pulsing through Annapolis, but that's not all. There are boats and docks and cute little shops and restaurants. There is always a wedding or event going down. Sometimes there a photo booths and cotton candy. You never quite know what to expect. Try it for yourself!

Photo Booth Poses #2

As we've been discussing photo booth poses and just you're general presence in the booth, i thought it would be good to discuss little exercises that anyone can practice at home to that you're prepared come time to step into the booth. One of them is just using the photo booth app on your iphone or mac. I would recommend practicing this solo as well as with others. The more you pose the you pro... gress. Get spunky and don't be afraid to take some great pictures.

Best Poses of 2014

A photo booth is a photo booth is a photo booth. That's obvious, but what isn't to some people is that a photo booth is a photo booth only you have some dastardly poses to whip out. Being in the photo business you have the horror of seeing so many photo booth-ees saunter into the booth scared of looking stupid and they let that fear drive them into the ditch. They're generally good people with low confidence. You have to hone the booth, hone your look. Here's a family that knew how to do so. They killed it. Literally.

A Little Bit of Candy Makes It Sweeter!

I came across some pretty interesting photos recently of little oompa loompas in a photo booth. You know? The small minion-like characters from Willie Wonka? Well they're not just in the film anymore, they're everywhere. The were first spotted in China a few months back and when Chinese officials realized what was going on, they had them deported and sent our way. Naturally they have attacked photo booths and are ruining everything. We have to stop them. Rent a photo booth. It's the only way. The more booths we can get out of their hands and into the natives, we will successfully reclaim our nation.

Photo Booths - LED Lights

Ever since i was a child i felt a strange pleasure seeing blue lights. So when i saw this booth, i was aroused. It's an aesthetic pleasure that is difficult to compare to anything else. There's an unexplainable draw that i feel to these blue LED lights, and i'm willing to bet that everyone else feels the same way. So why not use these lights on a photo booth. It looks amazing and really gives people something to look forward to. Believe me, you won't be able to keep people of your booth once you make the upgrade! Check it.

Photo Booth - Who Wants To Be a Hipster?

Sometimes i just tired of being so mainstream. I mean, i feel like i just don't fit in with all these normal people, you know? Like they all listen to so much pop music and... stuff. I'm more into stuff that you've probably never heard of like Mumford & Sons and M83. So when i host a party i don't wanna do just normal stuff, i wanna have like a hipster party with like a photo booth and like... mustaches and stuff, you know? So this is a picture of me at one of my parties. Don't mind the sweaters me and my friends just like to wear a lot of stuff that like a lot of stores don't really sell, we just shop at thrift stores or sometimes just Urban Outfitters, but i still say i got it at a thrift store. So... i'm just different than you. Check it. (I'm drinking a blue ribbon. You probs wouldn't like it.)

Keep Calm and... Photo Booth!

Keep calm and... (you fill in the blank!). This a cool new phrase i recently heard and has made me so free as a person. You can literally use this phrase for anything and everything. I've started making this my life motto lately and it's really helped me out. Try it and you can keep calm too. There's only one problem: nobody knows about this phrase. How can we help people out if they don't even know the phrase? We can't. Here's the ultimatum folks, get the word out. Instagram this, F-book it, Tweet it, love it. This is the future, get on board! Keep calm and rent a photo booth!
