COOL IDEA for WEDDINGS (or any kind of Party): Set up a “Selfie” Photo Booth with Fuji X, Yongnuo speedlites + Printer!


This could be a cool idea for your next X-wedding (or any kind of party): take a Fuji X (in this case the Fuji X-E2), 2x Yongnuo YN-560 MkIV speedlites, a Manfrotto BeFree Tripod, a Canon Selphy printer (or Fuji’s little SP-1 printer) and a few more things, and set up Photo Booth, where guests can take funny photos alone and print them on the spot.

You can read all the instructions at antonionunes. At the end, how did it turn out? antonionunes says:

“It was lots of fun. Guests really got into the fun and silly self-portrait thing, and the results were hilarious. Also, in the end, the Bride and Groom had this cute book full of happy shots and warm words, which is something I’m sure they’ll treasure.

The first feedback and suggestion comes from our Forum, where Mark G says at the Fuji X Wedding Photography Chat:

If the client pays for the (mostly) outrageously expensive printing paper, it would be a great idea. That said, for photo booths, I’d prefer 1 cheap strobe… just easier than changing batteries on the hotshoe flashes.”

Speaking of weddings: those who follow FujiRumors on facebook and twitter already know that I live in an apartment over a courtyard of a wine tavern. There are weddings almost every weekend there and I still have to see an X-shooter as an official photographer (hey… are you out there??). It’s always Canon and Nikon… but I’m confident this will change in the next wedding season with the Fujifilm X-PRO2 :) .
