Camera in Focus – 6 Things to Keep in Mind When Using a Photobooth Outdoors

Photobooths are fast becoming a new trend in the age of DSLRs and hired photographers, and it’s easy to see why. A photo booth from Snappy Photobooths will set you back less than a professional photographer, won’t need to interrupt conversations for photo opportunities, and can take as many pictures as a memory bank can hold over the course of your event.

Much like a photographer, they’re available for nearly any kind of event and unlike a photographer they are not subject to late notice sick days or unexpected holidays. These monolithic machines of photography mastery will not only take your pictures, store your pictures, and look good doing it, but they’ll also provide you with props for silly shots too.

The only thing you need to keep in mind is where you put them when you’re using them outside, so to help with that one task, we’ve created a list of things to keep in mind when using a photobooth outdoors, and we believe it will help immensely.

Lighting

As everybody with a phone camera knows, outdoor lighting is different to indoor lighting, and this difference is capable of ruining a shot in no time. One problem occasionally faced by photobooths is that they take on aspects of both outdoor and indoor lighIt’s a Glam Thingting when they are used in an outdoor setting.

This is because the unit is outside where light is bouncing off every blade of grass and tree in the immediately area, and the camera is housed on the inside of the unit. Make sure when placing it that you face the entryway away from where the sun will affect it, and everything should be a-ok.

Placement

Where the unit is in your event means everything, as you want it to be obvious to everyone and clearly intended for use. In an outdoor setting, this is a little harder to do because there aren’t the familiar and predictable lines of a house or walls to guide people to it, so instead you need to find a place people will flock to anyway. The food area tends to be the best place for this, as people are naturally moving toward it at all times, and it’s usually centrally located.

Props

Props are one of the best things about photobooths, and more and more companies are providing props for photographs that are relevant to the event. A large foam pair of love-heart glasses for a wedding, several sets of devil horns for a 21st birthday party, or even a toga for a university party.

These are all great ways to liven up phthe partypeople.com, otographs and encourage people to be more silly with the photobooth, however keeping in mind what you provide to your guests is a good idea, as drunk and disorderly guests might destroy props in their merriment. This adds to your bill, which is never a nice surprise at the end of a party.

Accessibility

How accessible your photobooth is for all of your guests will directly influence how many people use it and therefore how much use you get out of it. Accessibility should also be kept in mind for differently-abled individuals, so solid ground should be present when choosing the outdoor location for your photobooth, and a ramp is suggested for ease of access.

Weatherproofing

No matter where you are, surprise rain is a thing that affects us all. The fact that a photobooth is also an electronic device means that weatherproofing the outside of it if it isn’t already weatherproof is a very good idea.

Look for anything that might let dust or water into the unit and try to shelter it. It’s important that you don’t seal up these ports, as they can be venting locations for the machine, and sealing them could result in more damage occurring.

Nature

Finally, nature being the way it is you are sure to get bugs invading your photobooth at some point during the day of your event. Whether these are tiny gnats, harmless and almost non-existent for how much trouble they cause, or wasps that stand a chance of genuinely hurting someone is up to you.

It is recommended that you put a mosquito net around the unit if your soiree is taking place near troublesome insect nests or in areas or seasons known to be rife with critters.

These tips are the best ways to prepare your photo booth for the troubles of the outside world, and with some simple preparation you can not only ensure that the machine lives to photograph another day, but that your guests have a wonderful time filling up that memory chip with funny, wonderful photographs.

7 tips that will help you have awesome hair

Every person, be it a girl or a guy wants amazing looking hair. Something about the hair is really attractive and has been considered the symbol of beauty for ages. Not everyone has silky and smooth hair and feel left out and unappreciated.

However, people do not know that getting amazing hair is not such a complicated process and anyone can use some simple hacks to get themselves beautiful looking hair in no time. You do not have to go to the salon and spend a lot of money and these cheap tips and tricks can help you anytime you want.

Here are some tips and tricks that you need to follow immediately.

Before Washing the Hair

Before washing the hair comb the hair properly. Combing the hair before washing keeps them sorted out and they do not break at all during washing them. Also combing the hair increases the blood circulation in scalp and aids in hair growth.

During Washing the Hair

During washing the hair keep some points in mind. Use shampoos that do not have a lot of chemicals that can damage your hair. Conditioning is a must for a healthy hair. So condition after washing your hair regularly. Do not condition every day since that can also be harmful to the hair. Furthermore while picking up the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair make sure you buy both the things we of the same brand or the line. There could be chemicals in your shampoo and conditioner that could clash and harm you.

After Washing the Hair

After washing the hair deal with the wet hair carefully. The wet hair is really fragile and can break just with a strong tug or pull. Make sure you dry them off gently. Do not use excessive heat on your hair even when they are wet. Having a flat iron that has temperature control is the best way to go. Do not ever brush your hair immediately after washing them.

Oiling the Hair in Right Way

Oiling of the hair is extremely important. So apply warm oil over the scalp regularly and keep it there for over two hours and then wash it off thoroughly. Do not apply oil to your hair for long durations of time as it can cause the scalp to be oily and your hair would look greasy.

Too Many Products Are Harmful

People have a notion that if they use every product on their hair it will become better. This is just not true. The lesser the chemical products, the better is the hair. Make sure you use only the products on your hair that are absolutely necessary.

Use These Home Remedies

Use home remedies on your hair to give them a glow up without any side effects. Make your own home based conditioners and apply them on your hair. You can also make hair masks with eggs and bananas and apply them on the hair to give them luster.

Be Gentle On That Hair

Be gentle on your hair as you are on the other parts of the body. Do not tie your hair tightly or braid them during bedtime. Additional teasing the hair might sound like a great way to give it volume, it is the worst thing you can do to your hair.

These tips and tricks are best for each and every kind of hair. However, you can still use some innovations yourself. Keep in mind that the more you take care of your scalp, the better will be the hair. Another thing that ensures great looking hair is a healthy diet. A healthy diet is a must for you to look beautiful and your hair to glow in every form. Furthermore, understand that the home remedies for hair are really effective and follow them religiously. The basic thing is, if you keep your hair properly, it will look better and better.

Elizabeth Arden’s White Tea

Website product details:

Elizabeth Arden White Tea is inspired by the simple pleasure that accompanies the first sip of tea. Exquisitely uncomplicated, this new fragrance invites you to revel in the moment.

Elizabeth Arden White Tea

A musky-woody floral, it preludes with sparkling Italian Mandarin and sensual Sea Breeze Accord. Its Zen-like heart of White Tea Extract and Mate Absolute Paraguay steeps in graceful femininity while Madras Wood, Ambrette Seed Absolute and a Trio of Tranquility Musks lead to a harmonious finale. For the woman who wants to immerse herself in the moment.

White Tea is a crisp, blissful new addition to the Elizabeth Arden fragrance portfolio. The perfect escape for your senses, it is an invitation to indulge in warm memories and delight in the white tea vapors, blue skies and cotton-like clouds.

Did you know?

White Tea is not rolled or oxidized, resulting in a flavour characterized as "lighter" than green or traditional black teas. White Tea generally includes young or minimally processed leaves.

Launched just this year, Elizabeth Arden's White Tea fragrance captures the simplicity and purity of White Tea (as described above). It's an intoxicating but not overpowering blend with a White Tea core and notes of citrus and wood. The fragrance is very zen-like. I love it! I wore it yesterday, today and it is sitting front and center on my bedside vanity tray for a light spray before bed tonight. Thank you Donna Raheb for introducing me to this fine fragrance.
