3d Photo Booth

3d Photo Booth 397 535 LookLook

What is a 3D photobooth?

A bullet time photo booth, sometimes referred to as a 3d Photo booth or Array photo booth,  is the ultimate in event photography.

This innovative photography technique captures a split second in time to ‘freeze frame’ your guests.  A 3D photo booth utilises multiple cameras set on an arc.  Each camera fires at the same time: taking the same shot but from a slightly different angle.  These multiple still images are knitted to form a Gif, making the guest appear 3D.

The capture can catch a split-second in time so anything like a jump or a hair flick are mastered.

How does a 3d photobooth work?

A 3D photo booth utilises up to 12 cameras in an arc which all fire at the same time; taking 12 photographs each from a slightly different angle.

Once the content is created it is pinged instantly to our industry-leading GIFGIF software where the guest can see their image, send to themselves via SMS and share instantly on their preferred social network.

We can also add a GDPR compliant step into the journey and add a data-capture form so your guests can add in their email address.  Plus as all images are shared via our platform we can provide a stats report at the end of the campaign to show how many GIFs were taken and where they were shared.

Celebrity photography styles

Bullet time booths have been used across the pond for a whole range of celebrity events, here is one of our absolute faves, featuring none other than Queen Bee herself.

 

Why are 3d Photobooths so great?

3d photobooths are next-level in terms of event and marketing campaign photography.  The content uses top of the range DSLR cameras so each image is perfectly crisp and along with studio style lighting it means guests can look their best.  By combing this multi-cam booth with our own GIFGIF software means the user-journey is exactly the same as for GIFGIF . The ease of sending via SMS means we can maximise share rates and decrease drop-off.

What does a bullet time photobooth look like?

There are a umber of things to think about when it comes to how you want the bullet time Photobooth to look.

  • Lighting – Our Bullet Time booth comes with two studio lights to make your guests look their best.
  • Set – You can really go to town with the set for this.  You can have seats, bikes, a bed – the list is endless.
  • Backdrop –  A corner backdrop works best, this can be just plain printed coloured backdrop or it could be a living floral wall, balloon backdrop, pom poms or anything else that takes your fancy.  Something with colour and texture helps to amplify the 3d effect.
  • Overlays – These can feature your brand and key messages at the end of the video or throughout the footage.

What’s next from LOOKLOOK?

As well as developing the bullet time photobooth we have also been designing our very own custom Video Effects Suite which can take user-generated content and manipulate it in line with your brief.  This will be a really powerful tool to create completely on-brand user content for your brand.

The Most Instagrammable Content at London Fashion Week SS17 #LFW

The Most Instagrammable Content at London Fashion Week SS17 #LFW 690 460 admin

London Fashion Week SS17 has come and gone and we are still reeling from all the excitement it created. Every year it gets bigger and better as more brands engage with even larger audiences through social media and user generated content.

As London Fashion Week themselves said;

“…there are more ways than ever to get involved through digital engagement.”

Here at LOOKLOOK we have seen massive increase in brands looking to create fun, shareable and engaging content and it doesn’t look likely to change anytime soon. Figures show that 84% of customers are more likely to buy a product after experiencing the brand or product at an event (Event Marketing Institute, 2014).  We’ve worked with top brands such as Nike, Selfridges and Macy’s in New York all coming to us with the brief of wanting to engage their customers in an experiential way.

This year we have seen more innovative ways than ever for brands to engage with their fanbase; Instagram Stories live takeovers from @LondonFashionWeek to live streaming of catwalk shows.  We’ve seen ASOS creating live 15-min interview based podcasts with fashion insiders and the OUTNET’s immersive experience with their instagrammable hub of light and colour.  Fashion brands are leading the way when it comes to embracing digital mediums and user generated content.

Of all the fashion weeks, London is known to be the most quirky and open-minded. With big names like Burberry showing alongside newbies Ashley Williams and Shrimps and regular attendees including eclectic style blogger Susie Lau of Style Bubble, cool girl Alexa Chung and 7ft inflatable latex clad Pandemonia, it’s easy to see why the fashionistas of the world have all eyes on the capital in February and September each year.

London Fashion Week SS17 Stats…

  • Over 5000 visitors from over 58 countries
  • 1,258500 posts on Instagram tagged #LFW

#LFW (as it’s now known thanks to Instagram and Twitter) is the perfect opportunity for brands and designers to create experiences and content for users to share on social media.

Here is LOOKLOOK’s round-up of the top  Instagrammable (is that a word?) content from London Fashion Week SS17.

Burberry #BurberryMakersHouse

4,199 Instagram Hashtags

For the last few years Burberry have been way ahead of the game with regards to digital content and this season the super-brand did not disappoint with it’s specially designed venue ‘Makers House’.

Not only did the brand’s much anticipated, first non-seasonal, see-now-buy-now catwalk show take place here but the venue was open for a week after, showcasing original works by Britain’s finest artisans using the collection as inspiration. Cue the fash-pack snapping and sharing their experiences on Instagram!

VIP show guests such as Cara Delevingne, Lily James and DAZED’s Jefferson Hack were also invited into ‘The Studio’ of Makers House to create beautifully shot video content for Instagram featuring ceramic busts and a touch of good old British humour.

 

THE OUTNET #LightUpTheRoom 

1,854 Instagram Tags

THE OUTNET celebrated the personal style of industry insiders, show-goers and visitors alike at its Instagrammable hub of light and color. Visitors were able to recharge their batteries, enjoyed fashion week fuel by Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley of HEMSLEY+HEMSLEY and enjoyed the immersive experience as they watched their own personal style light up the room.

 

Charlotte Olympia & Sophia Webster

#LetsGoBananas & #DollyBirdsOfParadise

Shoes. A girl’s (non-diamond) best friend….and we’d like both shoe designers Charlotte Olympia and Sophia Webster to be in our Girl Gang please! Both designers graduates of the renowned Cordwainers Collage and both with a passion for colour, fun and femininity in their shoes and accessories.

Charlotte’s London Fashion Week SS17 presentation took place in the Sheraton Grand Hotel ballroom and was inspired by Carmen Miranda and 1940’s cabaret joints. A chorus line of dancers decked out in sequin swimsuits and Charlotte’s fruity platform heels danced with giant foam bananas, much to the guests phone-camera delight.
