Photobooth (again?) 101 - the basics
« on: August 25, 2010, 10:26:19 AM »
Hi All,

Wag sana magalit kung gumawa pa ko ng bagong thread and most of the content are from the photobooth gurus in this forum. Tingin ko kakaiba naman in a way kasi inorganize ko lang for the newbies like me.

To all na meron ng photo booth biz, pacheck naman tong ginawa kong checklist. Para kung tama na actionan ko na itong business na to. I’ll be putting up the photobooth in Baguio City. Parang wala pa kasi akong alam na nag-photobooth dun.

1. CAMERA
- it is preferred to use cameras with Live View option
- out of the DSLR cameras with live view, I’m choosing between Canon EOS 500d and Nikon d5000 (I'm leaning towards d5000 because of the price  :P)
reference: http://www.breezesys.com/index.htm (c/o japeeps)
- Kit lens is already ok. Even Canon Powershot series is ok since it already has the live view feature.
- prepare back-up battery
- Paano pala yung memory mga boss? Dumdiretso ba sa computer ang photos?

2a. PRINTER
- you can choose any of the recommended printers:
  a. canon ip3680 (c/o japeeps)
  b. canon ip4680 (c/o japeeps)
  c. canon selphy cp760 (c/o sze1009)
  d. canon selphy cp780 (c/o sze1009)
  e. Hiti? (c/o eos_kiss)
  f. DNP ds-40 (c/o sze1009)
- 2 printers redundancy and/or dual printing (optional)
- for dual printing, you can use this printer distributor software:  http://www.frogmorecs.com/printdistributor  (c/o sze1009)
- for 2 printers redundancy, you can also choose to activate spooling.
Control Panel > Printers > Right-click on the printer driver and chose properties > Go to the Ports tab and check the box for "Enable Printer Pooling" > check the the box for the other printer you want to use (c/o jopetdt)
***teka, may issue ba kung canon printer ko tapos nikon camera ko? mas may advantage ba pag canon na din camera ang gamitin ko?

2b. PHOTO PAPER and INK
**tama po ba ang assumption ko? Ito lang OPEX ng photobooth business? Aside from the picture standee (optional), customized backdrop (add-on feature), and manpower (optional)
**magkano po average total profit nyo per event?

- average of P15 per print * average 150 prints = Php2,250 then profit mo na yung remaining?

3. LIGHTING
- especially needed for indoor events
- 1 continuos light + 1 strobes, falcon eyes 150watts – I just want to quote marc_cristobal’s question. Is this set-up ok for photobooth biz?
- yung forum topic regarding lighting wala ako masyado napulot na info.. hehe.. 
Reference: http://www.pinoyphotography.org/forum/index.php?topic=56564.20



4. COMPUTER
- desktop or laptop. Any will do. It’s your choice.
- the brain of the photobooth business. :)
- this is where you will install the breezesys and printdistributor softwares as mentioned above
- this is where you will install photoshop or other softwares for the editing of the picture layout

5. BACKDROP/BACKGROUND
- san po bibili nung stand? Sa photo supply shop din po ba? Is this the same as the easy setting posing shed?
- san po kayo nagpapaprint ng tarpaulin?


6. PROPS
- I’ll be buying my props at andings toy shop, divisioria
- I’ll also be creating bubble messages on stick 

7. LIVE VIEW MONITOR (optional)
- I’ll be using my family’s desktop lcd monitor during events

8. PHOTOBOOTH (optional)
- I prefer a photobooth-like set-up and not a studio-like set-up. Siguro sa umpisa studio-like muna para madali i-set-up.

Fotobrew (photobooth):

http://fotobrew.multiply.com/photos/album/6/FOTOBREW_actual_set-up#photo=1

Fukengruven (photobooth):

** Sir, parang mababa ata yung camera? Or dahil madaming bata kaya mababa?

Japeeps (studio):


9. PICTURE STANDEE (optional or add-on)
- 4-8 pesos per piece depending on the quantity
- since I’m from Makati, I’ll be cheking this out too - colorplus production Group Corp. Makati city. Tel 5152664 look for Ace Valenzuela (c/o  japeeps ata if I remember correctly)

10. MANPOWER (optional)


SET-UP

** pano po ang connection ng lights? I’m assuming thru camera na yun.

wow! lahat nandyan na halos. actually sir lahat ng gusto mong bilhin para sa photo booth mabibili mo sa quiapo, kaso nasa baguio ka, pero sabi mo punta ka din ng divisoria isabay mo na ang pag punta sa quiapo, kaso ang hirap ng gagawin mo, 1 buong araw na mamimili? gudluck sir! suggest ko mga 2 days mo gawin para di ka hirap.
Always take some pictures, kaw din sayang yung picture moments.

Hi Everyone!

I just started my photobooth biz though its still on its nesting stage.I still don't have all the stuffs like the tarpaulin holder.Can you kindly tell me where I can buy it & for how much po?Actually I don't have much to spend kaya yung ibang gamit unti unti lang bili kaya for now family & friends pa lang ang target client ko. ;) I had one major problem, I bought a breezesys software however something just happened recently with aligning the photos and the frame.For some reason the frame won't fit the pix!Before naman po ok siya ngayon either maliit yung mga pix or sakto yung mga pix pero yung frame naman maliit. Or isang picture lang magappear tapos yung frame nasa gilid tapos maliit lang siya.Or mahahti yung isang pic sa loob nung frame. Sobrang labo. I adjusted the size of the image, print out, frame pero ganun pa din. & also one thing I noticed there's this overlay na dinelete ko na pero siya pa din yung lumalabas sa pics! I really don't know what seems to be the problem could it be that I may have done something wrong while re-installing the program? I-reformat my computer kasi. Honestly I'm so clueless. Hopefully you guys can help me out! :-[

And also I just want to say that forums like this are really helpful for amateurs like me. God Bless po! :)

sir japeeps! ganyan ang gusto kong set-up kagaya sayo, pansamantagal!!
simple pero maganda output(exposure) nyang 2 lights set-up na yan!
wala ka nang output monitor na nakaharap sa seaters? and your using a cannon pixma printer together with your d90..

tanong ko lang kung pwede ba wala ng photobooth software dyan sa studio style photobooth na yan? yung tipong pagkakuha ng camera ng image e diretso na sya sa template mo?? (teka yun nga ang function ng photobooth software diba?) hehehe

Chimpz, before running the software, select mo muna yng printer nagagamitin mo sa printer setup ng breezys software mo. Check if naka landscape yung selection mo, kasi pag mali yung napili mong printer and naka portrait yung orientation ng printer mo. ganyan ang mangyayari.

Check also sa Photobooth Settings -->Custom Layout settings -->Click "Print Info"

With that malalaman mo yung printable size in pixels ng printer na gagamitin mo. Now sa pag gawa mo ng layout you should design your layout using that settings.
