Episode 017 – Backups of Everything



We all know that backups are important when it comes to our computers, but with a photo booth what else do you need to back up?  Everything, eventually.  In this episode I talk about not only backing up your Darkroom information but also your hardware.  I go over a suggested order in which to start backing up your booth hardware as your business grows as well as considerations for items like the printer, camera, and computer.  You don’t have to start out with a backup of everything, but you should certainly make it a goal to achieve as your business evolves.


Episode 011 – Lighting



Lighting for a photo booth is pretty straight forward, but what happens when the standard setup changes?  Broken or burned out bulbs, ambient light coloring, these are all easily managed if you know which settings on the camera you need to work with.  I go over the four camera settings that will help you conquer lighting issues, as well as discuss the importance of using a light meter.


Episode 010 – The 4 Types of Events, Part 3 – Indoor Events



This episode brings to a close our three-part series on the four types of events by discussing indoor events.  Both canopy and open booth events indoors come with less variables than their outdoor counterparts, but there are still a couple of considerations that need attention.  I also discuss a Darkroom feature that many people are not aware of; adding QR codes to your screen and print templates.


Episode 004 – Camera Jargon



This week I talk about some important camera terms.  Aperture, shutter, and ISO.  What they mean, and how to work with them to get the best pictures from your photo booth.  Mastering these three settings will enable you to deal with any changes in your lighting situation.
