A picture is worth a thousand words, making photographs and stick-figure sketches the easiest solutions to looming dissertation deadlines. Take advantage of efficient visual-communication strategies with today’s Groupon: for $695, you get a six-hour photo-booth rental from 4 Star Photo Booth (a $1,395 value), traveling to locations within Orange County and Los Angeles. Customers may also apply the Groupon value toward an upgrade to a different package.
The roving photo booths provided by 4 Star can comfortably encompass up to 19 subjects, ideal for large, momentous occasions such as wedding receptions and holiday parties. A two-star package grants six hours of unlimited picture taking and a choice of premium backdrop of a red, white, or black curtain. Forage around a box of props filled with boas, hats, and house-arrest anklets before celebrity-sashaying down the 30-foot red carpet leading to the booth. After the photographers capture snapshots with their digital memory-nets, instantly printed glossies appear in color or grayscale, and may be matched with a custom message or image overlay. While sessions are taking place, a mounted LCD screen outside the booth cycles through a real-time record of the photos taken, combating flash-related short-term memory loss.
Booth renters will receive a USB flash drive of the entire session in its highest available resolution and four months of online hosting (either private or public). The professional on-site setup and breakdown takes about one hour before and after, so renters should plan accordingly.
