Everybody who enjoys taking selfies loves to show themselves in spectacular locations during vacation, having an amazing time with family and friends, or doing what they do best, from cooking to demonstrating some eye-popping dance moves.
Selfies have become our great mode of self-expression — and a way to convey the happiness in our lives. Think of it as collecting happy moments that showcase the best in our lives. But what happens when you’ve posted far too many shots of your vacation or your steps on the dance floor? That’s when you need to get creative!
One reason why photo booths are so popular at social events is they invite that kind of creativity. When a photo booth is available at a company retreat, wedding, birthday bash, or other event, guests flock to it — often in groups, getting as many people inside the booth as they can. So how do they pose once they’re in there? What have become the most popular poses — and how can we all start thinking outside the box? Great question!
What are the Most Popular Photo Booth Poses?
Photo booths are wildly popular at community events because those photos can be instantly shared on social media. It’s the best in instant gratification since digital technology and social media sites like Instagram let us share our happy moments with literally millions of people. Suddenly, the people in the photo booth are sharing their fun moments with a social culture that spans the entire globe.
Naturally, you want to be sure those photos catch people’s attention. And once the creativity kicks in, you don’t want to get out of that photo booth — you’re having too much fun!
Having to decide what pose to do in a photo booth can be challenging for some and a real joy for others, but it’s important to remember you only have about three seconds before the camera clicks. Among the most popular poses in photo booths in recent years have been:
- The Side Hug
- Silly faces
- The Brash Kiss
- Group pose of Smiling Faces
- Group pose of Serious Faces
These are all common, and popular; but, if they all seem so “been there, done that”, good news: we have some recommendations for new poses in the photo booth.
What are Some Fun Photo Booth Poses?
Ready to rock your photo booth? Here are some fun ideas for ways to do that.
Silly is Ideal
Being silly inside a photo booth means one thing — great fun! Plus, funny photos. How about getting inside the booth and pretending you’re taking a selfie? Or try hiding behind another person and jumping out at the last second, peek-a-boo-style? How about a goofy dance pose that keeps them laughing — a pose Gagnam Style, doing the Robot, or John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever?
Group Photo Booth Poses
If you’ve got a group of friends, find innovative ways to pose together. Get your friends, from shortest to tallest, and align together totem-pole style. Make a chain together and chug along as the camera clicks. Or have everyone blow a kiss at the same time.
Want to remind the world that the two of you are so deeply in love? Perfect! Stand together and have both of you make a heart sign with your hands. Face one another, and hold hands romantically. Or simply get closer to the camera, and enjoy a passionate kiss as it gets captured in a still image.
There are plenty of other ideas — just the girls together, just the guys doing the posing, and don’t forget creative use of props. Grab some paper and write some fun hashtags on it, or simply grab something random and find a clever way to pose with it. As long as you’ve got a creative imagination, chances are you’re going to come up with lots of fun ideas for how to strike a pose in your photo booth.
A photo booth at special events is always a big hit because it allows your guests to capture fun moments and then hold on to those special memories. Just remember to make those photos memorable as well.
