Asking people to say "cheese" remains the most effective way to prompt photo-worthy grins, mostly because it's much cheaper than buying every subject a puppy. Plaster a smile on friends' faces with today's Groupon: for $495, you get a three-hour photo-booth rental from ThePhotoBooth.ca (a $995 value). ThePhotoBooth.ca serves the following Ontario locations: the Greater Toronto area, Barrie, Kitchener, London, Niagara Falls, and St. Catharines.
ThePhotoBooth.ca enlivens events from corporate parties to weddings and bar mitzvahs with photo booths that utilize 10-megapixel cameras to capture high-resolution shots. Groups of up to eight people can complete three- or four-picture sessions in about a minute, and shots eject about 30 seconds later on high-quality photo paper in a choice of black-and-white, sepia, or colour. Rentals include unlimited photo sessions, allowing guests to try out a variety of backgrounds, real-time slideshows, and green screens that put subjects on their choice of Jupiter's moons. An on-site attendant—who also performs setup and tear-down—helps partygoers maximize the booth experience and explains how guests can view and share photos via logging on to a private web gallery, accessible for one year.
ThePhotoBooth.ca also furnishes renters with all photos as digital colour images on a CD/DVD, and renters retain all photo rights, meaning they may print, share, and photoshop funny hats onto images as they like. Staff can also arrange customized layouts that add text, images, or logos to prints, free of charge. Read more at ThePhotoBooth.ca's FAQ page.
