Setting up a Photo Booth from Start to Finish

Considering almost everyone has a camera of some form or another with them all the time, it’s kind of crazy how popular (and fun) a good old fashioned photo booth can be.

In this AdoramaTV video presented by Mark Wallace, you’ll learn how to set up a photo booth that will automatically process and display your photos. All guests need to do is pick up the PocketWizard Plus III, stashed by the entrance, and click away to remotely fire both the camera and the flash.

Don’t forget, silly faces are mandatory and strictly enforced!

VIDEO: Bryan Peterson Mixing Flash with Ambient Light at Dusk

Bryan Peterson has released another instructional video as part of his You Keep Shooting series for AdoramaTV.

The light at dusk can be beautifully soft and warm but in order to take a portrait in this kind of light, you’ll have to choose between a beautiful background and properly exposed subject. In this episode, Bryan demonstrates how to use flash to preserve the ambient light, while getting a well exposed subject.

He sets up his camera on a tripod and meters for the ambient light. Using a PocketWizard radio trigger, he holds his speedlight (warm gel attached), off to the side, and triggers his camera just as his model jumps into the frame.

Watch the video above and see more from the entire series. Information on Bryan’s school can be found here.
