Slow Motion Photobooth Making Waves in the Wedding Photography Industry

At major events such as birthdays, weddings or christenings, it’s fast becoming a staple to come across a photobooth or at least a designated picture-taking area for guests to enjoy. Not only is it very Facebook-friendly, it also doubles as a guestbook for the celebrant/s to look back on. In the case of this wedding, a group called sfst came up with the concept of a ‘slow motion booth’. The title is self-explanatory, but is best appreciated in the video below:

The video was shot at 160 fps with a RED Epic camera. “We didn’t have enough lights to really push it to 300 fps,” says an insider to a curious commenter. Also included in the setup are a monitor, 4 LED lights (Konova 900 LED with vmount), a white backdrop and finally just a few props.

Some color correction was done in post, but for the most part, the ‘clean’ look was achieved in-camera.
