Photo Booth Hire Birmingham For Your Big Event
Another aspect of the classic photo booth hire is for it’s nostalgia. Many people have used a photo booth at some time in their past, most likely as teenagers, to get photo’s taken with their boyfriend or girlfriends. The shy, intimacy aspect comes into play here also, whereby young relationships perhaps can’t create the photo booth pictures in any other environment together without getting embarrassed! Other’s may have used photo booth hire Birmingham from Petite Booth to bundle into with friends, to get a fun, unusual photographic keepsake. This perhaps is a more extroverted use of the booth, as friends competed to see who could pull the silliest face, or strike the best pose in the limited four flashes.
Either motive for using the photo booth hire from Petite Booth is a great motive, with the end result being a photographic strip the users can keep and reminisce about. So we’re talking about a fun, un-domestic activity, that captures friends or partners in the moment and provides a memento of the moment? What a great idea! Shouldn’t people be using that for weddings and birthday parties?
It’s clear where the thinking came from and now hard to believe that the idea has only in the last twelve months become such a popular feature for events. But what, if you don’t necessarily have those nostalgic feelings and memories, will appeal to you most?
The novelty is of course a key factor. It’s not a common household item, unlike modern digital photography equipment. As technology and the internet has given people greater creative ability in their own home, the world of high quality photography is no longer considered elitist and the domestic prices of many standard digital SLR’s and printing equipment has led to the general public – formal photography training or not – to take on the hobby with industry standard products. Gone are the days when a family holiday would be documented on a disposable camera, or the prints would take five to ten days getting developed at the local chemists. Now, thanks to computers and digital cameras, special occasions with family and friends are only worth capturing if it can be saved to a hard drive and later shared on Facebook.
This leads us to the rise of social networking in modern culture. Now everybody with a Facebook, MySpace, Bebo account or similar is actively encouraged to upload photographs for their friends and family to view, the need for digital photography increases further. Every up-to-date mobile phone has a camera function and the ability to upload photographs online whilst on the move. It’s aspects of our current culture like this that have created a fascination with photography and documenting our day to day lives. This obsession means our society not only wants to take photographs, but they want to see the result instantly and share it just as rapidly.
Photo booth hire captures the essence of all these notions in one. The instant prints, the touch screen technology, the high quality photography and the digital results available later in online galleries – how did we not fall in love with the idea sooner?
This is one passionate, long term relationship that doesn’t look set to fizzle out just yet.
