How Much Space Do You Actually Need to Set Up an Instant Photo Booth?
When you are planning to engage an instant photo booth service for your corporate event or a party, this question will definitely come across your mind.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty measurements of exactly how much space is needed for an instant photo booth, firstly, let’s find out what an instant photo booth consists of and what we should consider.
In general, an instant photo booth consists of a backdrop and a standing machine for photo taking and printing. Your guests will be standing against the backdrop for photo taking. We have about 10 different backdrop selections for you to choose from. Our designer will usually advise you on a suitable backdrop when designing the customised instant photo print border.
The backdrop usually comes in the form of a fabric cloth, the method of which it is mounted depends on the instant photo booth company. At Vivid Snaps, we use professional photographic backdrop stands and drape the fabric over it. The backdrop would then be placed against a wall at your event venue.
Different Vendors, Different Photo Booth Setup
The instant photo booth setup can come in very different formats, depending on how the instant photo booth company designed it to be. It would usually be arranged like a standing booth with a camera fixed at eye level, connected to a computer and photo printer. The camera or the photo booth will then be placed about 2 meters in front of the backdrop.
To take a nice instant photo booth picture, we need to take into consideration the camera-to-backdrop distance. In order for the backdrop to be completely covered in your camera frame, an approximate width of 2 meters (minimum) for the backdrop is required with a camera-to-backdrop distance of about 2 meters
Depending on the camera-to-backdrop distance, the backdrop width may be adjusted accordingly. A simple rule would be: the further the camera-to-backdrop distance, the wider the width of the backdrop, while all other things remain constant.
Minimum Space Required for Photo Booth in Singapore
Safely speaking, the bare minimum space we need is approximate 2.5 by 2.5 meters. This amount of space gives us adequate room to work around with the camera-to-backdrop distance, which would be adjusted according to the needs of your event. We will also need some space for a table to display the fun photo taking props.
Why Do I Need to Know All about the Measurements of the Photo Booth?
Well, you do not necessarily need to worry when you are at a Vivid Snaps photo booth because our staff are trained to guide you in positioning yourself for the best shot. However, having a space that is too tight might compromise your guests’ experience at the photo booth. While in some cases, having too much space may not help to achieve the best photo quality or experience too. Our photo booth crew will advise you on the ideal setup after assessing your event nature and venue requirements during your event day.
Instant photo booth measurements vary across different companies and also depending on the location of your event. While some event locations have adequate space for an instant photo booth, some event locations do not have the luxury space. In this case, a good photo booth vendor will decide the best measurement and layout for the photo booth, with minimal compromise to the photo quality.
We have successfully delivered instant photo booths for event venues, hotel ballrooms, restaurants, bars, clubs, homes, offices & shopping mall atriums. Outdoor venues can be extremely tricky, please discuss with our project coordinators.
