I'm interested in doing open air photo booths. I've read through a lot of discussions on here, but still have some questions.
1. What triggering mechanism do you use? I was thinking about supplying a corded remote and having the camera on a 2 second timer. Then having basic instructions on the tripod.
2. Is it a must that I have an LCD displaying the pictures either live or just after or at all?
3. Is it a must that I provide prints on site?
I was reading a thread here a while back and can't seem to find it, but Lloyd and siddr20 were showing their past booths and I was intrigued. A few days later a client asked me to do something similar and here I am.
Basically, around here photo booths are pretty expensive, so I thought if I could offer something simple to set up and save the bride a few hundred and make myself an extra few hundred it'd be win win. I'd really prefer not to have a live view or offer onsite prints. I want to keep it super simple, but I want the client to feel like they're getting their money's worth too. And I was thinking of having a sign over a basket of cards saying Like our facebook page, photo booth photos will be on FB this week.
Any thoughts on the matter will be appreciated.
