Open vs. Closed Booths
What is the difference between an Open or Closed booth?
A closed booth is a canopy with enclosure surrounding guests while photos are taken. Guests enjoy the experience of a "private" photo session much like the classic photo booth.
With a closed booth the guests are closer to the camera, making their faces larger in photos, giving more attention to facial expressions.
Closed booths bring some size restrictions when it comes to large groups, though we have had as many as 8 guests inside at once. From past events we have found "most" groups looking to use the photo booth supports up to 5 guests comfortably.
Open booths is open to the public. All guests are able to see the guests having their photos taken. Think red carpet, where your guests will stand in front of a backdrop. There are no enclosures simply a backdrop for the photos.
With a open booth the guests are further from the camera. Giving more attention to full length poses.
Open booths allows for more people to be in the picture. Open booth allows you to get as many people as you can squeeze into the frame in front of the camera which can easily be 10 or more people.
