This Photo Booth Looks Like Instagram, But Doesn’t Annoy Your Friends


Photo booths are seriously fun and they’re also highly prized at weddings. Recently, Instructables user and photographer Alexander Morris came up with this awesome setup for a DIY Photo Booth that is inspired by Instagram. Interestingly enough, he did it all out of a few pieces of wood and an Arduino. Of course, that’s putting it in highly simplistic terms. He also fitted the inside with a Nikon D3200 with 18-55 kit lens, two Nikon SB900 flashes, a TV monitor (connected to the 3200’s live view) and cooling fans.

There’s no mention of it being connected to WiFi or anything else like that, but it would be pretty awesome if he used an app to tether the camera to an iPad or Android tablet so that Instagram’s interface can actually then be applied to the images. Either way, it’s a pretty kick ass concept and we encourage you to check it out for yourself.
