A photo booth is all about commemorating and celebrating a moment. Snapping a photo preserves the memory, transforming it into a tangible object. A physical photo booth offers an opportunity to take one or multiple snapshots that can be printed or shared as a digital file. A virtual photo booth brings the joy of the physical booth into the digital age. With a virtual photo booth, the camera is no longer inside a crowded booth. In fact, the camera lies within the lenses of our devices. Whether guests are physically present or inside their own homes, a virtual photo booth captures their experiences and preserves a moment in time. A virtual booth has a place in nearly every event, from personal celebrations to business-based celebrations.
What Is a Virtual Photo Booth?
A virtual photo booth is a web browser-based online photo booth. Since the booth is browser-based, guests do not have to download apps that take up space on their devices. In lieu of an app, guests are provided with a link to access the photo booth online on their phones, tablets, or computers. A QR code is also provided for a guest to scan with their phone’s camera.
The person in charge of the virtual booth gets to craft the experience for the guests. As hosts, they can customize what templates, stickers, backgrounds, props, and any other photo booth accessories they want to add to their guests’ experience. With a virtual booth, guests do not have to be limited to a still photo. Guests also will be able to snap gif shots and create boomerangs.
Why Do You Need a Virtual Photo Booth?
The virtual photo booth cannot completely replace the experience of a physical booth, but it does allow people to snapshot moments in these unprecedented times. Some people may be unwilling or unable to participate in large gatherings. A virtual photo booth allows people to capture important moments even in the virtual event era.
A Virtual Photo Booth Generates Engagement
Keeping a virtual event entertaining can be challenging. A virtual photo booth helps to keep the audience engaged by offering attendees an activity to do other than sitting in front of their computers. A virtual photo booth is an excellent choice for a hybrid event. The accessibility of the virtual booths broadens the number of individuals who can participate.
A Virtual Photo Booth Encourages Connection.
Guests can interact with one another in the virtual space, creating an atmosphere of togetherness even if they are each in their own home. Guests can share images directly with one another without any watermarks. The use of a hashtag for an event is a great way to unite everyone. Using the tag throughout the event to post photos taken through the virtual booth will encourage connection between everyone under the hashtag. Guests can interact with each other virtually by liking, commenting, and sharing.
A Virtual Photo Booth Is a Marketing Tool
A hashtag for the event operates as a tool for connecting the attendees, and it also serves as a marketing tool. Additionally, adding a logo or title on photo templates or providing virtual stickers allows your attendees to promote the event while enjoying themselves. Through their posts, guests end up promoting the event organically, and they might promote other companies or sponsors involved with the event.
