How I Built An Affordable, Custom PhotoBooth and How You Can Too

These days people love photo booths and once you have set it up it works -- and pays -- for itself. I found various plans and tutorials, but in my opinion, none of them had a good purchase list or a really good manual. So I decided to make my own.

I Held a Dog Headshot Photo Booth, and the Results Were Hilarious

After the fantastic experience I had hosting my first Dog Photo Booth at Glens Falls Pet Fest in City Park, Glens Falls last year, I knew I had to return for the 2nd annual event. As simple as the concept may sound, hosting a photo booth (let alone one for dogs) involves a number of technicalities. Having never hosted a photo booth before, last year was a tremendous learning experience for me as a photographer.

Billboard Uses Tire Screeching Sounds to Photograph Terrified Jaywalkers

An unusual billboard was recently set up at a crosswalk in France to promote pedestrian safety. Whenever a pedestrian was detected crossing while the "red man" light was on, the billboard would emit a loud tire screeching sound. A camera built into the billboard would then capture the terrified face of the jaywalker.

This LEGO Photo Booth Helps You Build Your Portrait with Bricks

If you're a fan of photography and LEGO, you should pay a visit to LEGO's flagship UK store in London if you're ever in the area. That location has the world's first "Mosaic Maker," a special photo booth that turns your portrait into a one-of-a-kind LEGO kit for building your face with blocks.

Say Woof: Doggy Photo Booth is a Hit

DIY: A Raspberry Pi Photo Booth You Use with Your Own Smartphone

What he came up with is a Raspberry Pi-powered mobile photo booth that's controlled entirely through the subject's smartphone through a special website. He calls it the "Pi-Booth."

Doggy Photo Booth Helps Shelter Get Dogs Adopted

Photographer Guinnevere Shuster of the Humane Society of Utah came up with a fantastic idea for helping dogs get adopted: the doggy photo booth. Her photos of the dogs do a much better job at capturing their personalities than standard snapshots, and the results have been impressive: 93.26% of the dogs are now finding new homes.

This Guy Used a Photobooth to Capture Photos and a Video of His Proposal

A pair of high school sweethearts named Kevin and Molly got engaged this past week after being together for 7 years. To document his proposal, rather than hire a photographer or task a friend with hiding in the bushes, Kevin chose to take his unsuspecting girlfriend into a photo booth that captures both photos and video. The video above is what resulted.

Lightomatic is a Photo Booth That Lets Subjects Paint Light Into Their Portraits

As light painting photography is becoming more popular and common, photographers are coming up with better and better ways of bringing the technique to events. The Lightomatic is a fancy solution by Dazler, a collective of light painters based out of Lyon, France.

From the outside it looks like your average high-end photo booth, but it's one that allows users to make a creative light painting self-portrait print on the spot.
