What are they hiding?
Flash Photography vs. Ambient Light.
Most photo booths resort to using ambient light, and it’s a pity. This approach is the wrong move for two reasons.
First, they typically don’t supply enough light for a good exposure, so the photos end up being too dark. Without a flash, other photo booths have no choice but to shoot with a slower shutter speed, larger aperture, and higher ISO, which makes them more sensitive to light. Or they end up using all three. The slow shutter speed means that any movement inside the booth will produce blur. The large aperture means a narrow depth of field, which often makes people in the back look blurry. ISO used to be called “film speed” in the old days of film. A high film speed meant a grainy look. Today we don’t have film grain, we have digital noise. A high ISO adds digital noise, which detracts from the sharp beauty of the portrait.
Second, if there is actually enough light to produce a decent exposure, that light is always on. It is bright, and it is hot. This is obnoxious in a dark room. Photo booths are almost always set up in a dark room, meaning a bright light is the last thing your clients will want right next to them on the dance floor.
Size of the Light Source
The size of the light source is the #1 determining factor in the quality of a portrait. Imagine taking pictures on a clear day at noon with no shade. Think of the shadows of cars, lamp posts, and stop signs you see on sunny days. They all have hard edges. These hard shadows will also be on the subject’s face. That’s because, ironically, our sun counts as a small light source (because it’s small from our perspective).
On the other hand, a cloudy day will produce beautiful light. On an overcast day, the entire sky becomes the light source, producing superior image quality. When the sun slips behind a cloud, the shadows on the ground seem to disappear. This is the perfect shadow-less light that professional studios try to imitate with a large soft box.
This is the light we at Inventive try to imitate with the 3X4 ‘ white face of the booth, which becomes the light source. Most photo booths, if they are good enough to even use flash photography, place the flash above the camera behind a screen. This system is fine for what it is, but it allows no way to possibly design a large enough portrait. It also breaks another basic rule of portraiture: never have the light source come from the same direction that the photo is being taken. It flattens the persons features. Our booths are different; we bounce the light. This is a solution that only a professional photographer would have thought of.
We are also the ones who use hand-painted professional studio backdrops.
