Not Your Grandma’s Photo Booth, Unless Grandma’s Totally with It!

Did you know that the first ever photo booth was patented over a hundred years ago, in 1889? It’s true! But the concept of the photo booth didn’t really take off for another 36 years, and to say the least, it wasn’t exactly high-tech. In fact, it took a full ten minutes to deliver just eight pictures. Your Grandma probably remembers photo booths that were a little faster. Back in the day, they were commonplace in shopping malls and county fairs, and you could get a strip of photos generated in considerably less time – five minutes, usually! Of course you were limited to black and white, and if you weren’t totally ready when the shot was taken, the results could be pretty hilarious.

 

 

 

The 21st Century Photo Booth

To say the least, your Grandma’s photo booth has undergone a lot of changes. Today, photo booths are digital, and the image quality is far superior to what it was in the olden days. That’s why everyone is excited about modern photo booths, and why they’re becoming ubiquitous at weddings, parties, conventions and other events. Affordable photo booth rentals are commonplace, and they can really liven things up.

In days gone by, photo booths were incredibly bulky, and it could take literally days to pack them up, move them, set them up at the venue, and then take the whole thing down once the event was over. Today’s photo booths don’t weigh much, and they’re remarkably portable. In fact, you can transport them in an ordinary half-ton truck, or even an SUV. And there’s nothing old-fashioned about them. They’re super high-tech, and guaranteed to please the younger crowd, and even your incredibly with-it Grandma!

 

No More “Blah” Images

Along with the bulky photo booths of the past, the dull, boring images are gone. Let’s face it – Grandma and her young friends want something better, something new and exciting. That means animated GIFs that can be used as profile images on social media, or avatars in online games. They also want features like slow-motion video clips that can be shared on the web. Today’s affordable photo booth rentals offer all that and more. You can instantly share your images to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and other social media sites without having to worry about external storage. You can also send images via email or instant messaging. Customizable borders and add-on images are standard, so your only limit is your own creativity.

 

Fun for Everyone

If you’re having a party, a wedding, or some other event in the Napa area, a photo booth rental is one of the best ways to guarantee a ton of fun. Your photo booth provider looks after all the setup and dismantling, so all you have to do is enjoy. Even the shyest people tend to come out of their shell when experimenting with backdrops and props, and you can bet that their Facebook friends are going to be a lot more interested in fun, fanciful photo booth images than they are in a picture of breakfast.

 

 

Everything Old Is New

Just imagine – a hundred plus years since the debut of the photo booth. And today it’s just as popular as it ever was, but so much better. The principle is the same – you get your picture taken without the need of a photographer. But oh, the difference in the pictures! Why not rent a photo booth for your party or wedding? Your guests will love it, and you’ll have great images to keep and share. Photo booth rentals are very affordable, and even more fun than they were back in 1889!
