Read about the open-concept photo booth here. For each option, a staff member arrives an hour before the event’s start time and set up the photo booth, sticking around to operate it for the duration of the party. The machine churns out two strips of prints in less than 60 seconds for guests to keep. All options include unlimited prints.
Digital Photography: Making Art in Milliseconds
Digital cameras rely on built-in computers to capture and develop images instantaneously. Learn more about the process with Groupon’s guide to digital photography.
With traditional film, light enters the lens and registers on millions of microscopic silver halide crystals, forming a latent image that can later be developed through a chemical reaction. Digital cameras work in much the same way, carrying out the complex process—from exposure to development—in only fractions of a second. Instead of hitting a frame of film, the light hits an image sensor made up of millions of photosensitive diodes. Each diode corresponds to a pixel, the tiny colored dots that make up a digital image. The diodes do not register color, however—instead, the sensor simply records the brightness of the light hitting each pixel, along with its electrical charge. The charges for each pixel are recorded and converted into digital data, or bytes—a series of ones and zeroes. This data represents the location and brightness for each pixel in the picture, instantly forming a black and white reproduction of the image. To develop the color, the sensor computes the color of each pixel by applying red, green, and blue filters based on information from the surrounding pixels—a process known as interpolation. Once interpolated, the image shows up as a full-color, full-resolution digital image ready to be printed, edited, or e-mailed to an old friend to prove you still exist—all in the matter of a few milliseconds.
A Chat with Your Gig Rentals’s Owner
What inspired you to start this business? I have always enjoyed the good times that are found at weddings, engagement parties, and all the other events, so once I realized how much fun these booths were I couldn't get one off my mind. Now that I own a photo-booth company, I still can't get them off my mind!
What makes your business stand out? Photo strips are printed out on the spot at your event so guests can have something to take home with them! Individual pictures can be printed at the location in a larger size by request.
What is your most popular offering? Printing out larger singular photos is a very popular service I have. Not many of my competitors offer this service, or have thought about it. Also, I sell individual props.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer? One bride told me that she wants to get married again just to have my company at her party again!
What’s your favorite part about your job? I get to see everyone’s smiles, not to mention their funny faces! Nothing is more fun than watching everyone get goofy!
