Kinukuwento sa akin ng operator ko.

hehe sabi ng isang mama (medyo nakainom)
BRAD! pa recopy nga nito! bilisan mo kung ayaw mong tumama sa iyo to (sabay turo sa muscle niya). hahaha

oh that's rude.
mine were kind of minor lang but it's common.
"sir, naka-pikit ako sa picture...paulit naman." (per print basis kami nun ) 
"ah, hindi pala whole body shot 'to? ano ba yan!"

i would suggest to tell them (in a nice way) that the agreement or contract is one print only.  if they insist especially when a relative ego boasting in, then call the attention of the person you have dealt with for that event.  Let them decide not you baka masisi ka pa :) 

now here is the risk.  those people around the booth are your probable clients.  net, you should be nice to them.  risk, why?  it might turned out bad experience for them kung hindi maganda ang response natin sa kanila.  in my experience, naka set-up na ang program to print one copy only but people were insisting to have another copy.  so, kinausap ko yung nag contact sa akin.  so, i made the changes.  madali lang naman palitan ang number of prints and usually people are willing to wait for you to finish the changes.  again, just align everything with your contact person of that event.

good luck guys!

don't stop shooting kasi bayad ka dun.  the extra printing should come after or if inactive ang booth mo (walang tao).  let them wait. forgot to mention that, let your contact person know the remaning photo papers that you have.  baka lampas ka na sa agreement during re-print at hindi ka mababayaran :)

naisip ko na rin yan sir, bale ang gagawin e ip-paste mo yung mga pix sa template mo den print...
pero naisio ko matrabaho yun at medyo kakain ng ilang segundo pa yun.. kaya hahaba ang pila mo at konti lang ang makukuhanan mo.. just my two cents..

What I do pag me makulit na humihingi ng reprints...

1. I have the laptop and an extended monitor (sa front yung monitor). The software image is in the extended monitor and the live view in my laptop. So I can see the set up kahit nasa likod ako ng booth.
2. Open the file destination of the images saved and ensure it's the folder where the 4x6 prints are saved. Leave it open sa laptop screen and minimized. The folder will automatically refresh everytime there is an image saved.
3. When someone asked for a reprint, I just look for the image, right click and print. (Pero syempre, habang busy pa nagpe-prepare yung next customer. Madalas kasi mabusisi yung mga yun. :D And naka-spool yung printer kung dalawa. Kung isa lang printer mo, pag bakante na lang ang booth tsaka ka mag-reprint.)

Experiment. Try nyo if you can.

What I do for people asking another copy.....
I just tell them to go to the online gallery website displayed on the standee. Tell them that they can download it later after the event.

After nun, wala nang uma-angal kasi wala silang copya. hehehe

My problem is on triggering the flash while in LiveView mode. I use a Canon 1000D and unfortunately, that cam cannot trigger a non-ttl flash (which is the case with my studio strobe) when in LiveView mode.

What gear do you guys use for lighting and providing the LiveView experience?

If anyone has a solution to my problem...help please :(

Try this solution I tried.
1. In the Live view function, disable the "Silent shooting" with that puede na yung non TTL flash gamitin mo using a sync cable and hotshoe adaptor.
2. if nakatago yung studio strobe mo sa box, you can also do this. Gamit ka ng TTL extension cable, sa dulo yung flash mo. Itapat mo sa sensor  yung flash mo sa studio strobe na naka "slave mode"  para pag nagflash, sabay yung strobe mo puputok. sounds *toink* pero it will work. hehehe

- walang parking
- walang space para sa photobooth (2-3meters man lang dapat ang space)
- crash ang software.restart ulit
- lowbatt ang trigger
- mga camwhore.ayaw na umalis
- mga naninira ng props
- on the spot edit and coordinates change
- mga hindi nakakaindindi ng "4 shots po one copy. automatic po yan"
- hindi marunong mag basa ng "Look here" sa booth

it's common that client doesn't think much of photobooth area.  ikaw na bahala mag hanap or mag-suggest.   second, i have just experienced na sira-sira na props ko 'coz people were stepping on them.  not so nice to see  >:( and they don't care at all!
