The Power of Props

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Nowadays, we get our pictures taken so often. With an abundance of cell phone cameras and the consumer accessibility of high-end SLRs – the magic of getting a picture taken is not quite what it used to be. Almost each and every time we go out there is someone with a camera ready to capture the moments. The pictures are often instantly posted on the Internet as we quickly revisit our memories in front of a screen for all our friends to see.

These days, it takes something more to heighten the excitement of a photograph. One of the key elements that sets the photo booth apart and elevates the fun to the next level is the use of props. It’s not everyday that we get to dress up – casually grab, say, a plastic Viking helmet and sunglasses, just to goof off with our closest friends and family members in front of a camera with no outside judgment. Not only that, but these goofy photos are printed instantly for us to bring home an actual memento, not just a digital file.  These types of scenarios may seem few and far between… but they can actually happen anytime behind the mystical curtain of the photo booth!

The booth is the perfect setting. The curtain is closed and the camera is unmanned, leaving the guests to let go by removing the self-consciousness often caused by a cameraman or spectators. It’s just the guests alone with the camera, now add a variety of props and accessories – the possibilities are endless. Your guests begin to role-play and embody the energy of the props that they choose. The props help create a fantasy world behind the photo booth curtain that people of all ages can enjoy. These simple accessories help everyone forget their age and play like a child all over again. At each event we see dozens of guests – children, teens, parents and grandparents – all eagerly awaiting their turn wearing masks, sunglasses, boas and all kinds of other colorful accessories.

Having fun never goes out of style but it sometimes takes a special moment for us to put our inhibitions aside and let loose. A photo booth along with a big box of props just may be what makes your next event go from ordinary to extraordinary.
