DIY | Build a Photo Booth that Looks Like Instagram

By Jules Ebe on March 19th 2013


Photo booths have become as common-place during events as DJs, photographers, and that one friend who keeps trying to spike the punch. With that in mind, photographer Alexander Morris designed an Instagram inspired photo booth that will attract guests and keep the party going. A great addition to any event photographer’s arsenal.

Another nice feature: it’s a full DIY set-up.



The interior is fairly basic and includes a camera with kit lens, 2 speedlights, a TV monitor (connected to the camera’s live view), and cooling fans.

Until Next Time . . .

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see
    if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
