Photo booths are almost on every event these days. They are nearly becoming a necessity for events of every kind. A lot of photo booths come in many shapes and sizes, those that allow for an ‘open air’ format, like ours at Photo Booth Rental Dallas, are unique for a few reasons.
Firstly, our photo booths permit more people to join in a single photo. Second, they usually, but not always, offer for better lighting conditions and lastly, our modern, open air photo booths allow clients to get more creative with the backdrop.
We look into some ideas on how to make your pictures unique as well as change the feel of photo booth just by doing some modifications to your backdrop.
- One of the definite classics, the gold sequin backdrops. These are recommended for weddings, for parties that have the 1920’s vibe going on, casino nights, and even for corporate events. The quick downside for gold backdrop is that, photo booth companies should be careful with the lighting. If done well, this is one backdrop that a lot of people would love to have their pictures taken!
- Real floral backdrops bring in the creativity and uniqueness for a backdrop. Real plants, flowers and floral elements can be hung over a solid colored background or can fill out the entire backdrop. Floral photo booth backdrops are recommended for weddings and usually can be put together by a florist.
- To get the industrial feel, try using brick or concrete walls. It contrasts very well with people in the shot, never gets stepped on or bumped by the guest that got the extra bottle and adds a rustic look to the photos. If the venue allows a brick or concrete wall to be cleared, we do recommend using it as the photo booth backdrop.
- Another recommendation for barn and old church weddings is to use wood as backdrop. Wood reflects relatively well and contrasts bright colors that are usually found on weddings and parties.
- To get the ‘bokeh’ visual effect (a photography trick in which photos have out of focus parts and the rest is not), you can order a custom vinyl backdrop with a glittery pattern printed below it. The trick here is that, deliberately print the backdrop out of focus to give the shallow depth of field impression – thus making the ‘bokeh’.
- For a backdrop that has a more of the vintage flair, consider using lace. The more designs and colors, the better. The lace can be cut into strips of different widths and lengths and arrangement can be in any order. Lace also works well on outdoor venues when a slight breeze blows onto the backdrop, giving it an airy movement.
Now that you have some ideas on some unique backdrops. It will not be a challenge to get the guests using the photo booth once it is set up and starts taking pictures. These creative twists will surely keep your guests engaged while capturing moments of the event.
