So one thing I haven’t put much thought into is whether or not to have a monitor for our DIY faux-to-booth?
It is going to be manned by the second shooter the entire night, so I kind of like that there won’t be a monitor and people will be looking at the camera rather than down or to the side watching what they look like….but then it’s kind of not a photobooth? Or maybe it is?
The problem is FI’s monitor was expensive and he doesn’t want to use his, not sure where whe would find one but I’m sure we could. So what do you think-is a photobooth fine without a monitor?

@kmarie719: Ours was fine without! I actually didn’t even consider it… what would the monitor be hooked up to? The 2nd shooters camera? They don’t need to look at the monitor because it’s not taking the pics like in a normal Photobooth!

I would definitely skip the monitor. Seems like a lot of setup for something not important

No monitor. That way they’ll be more spontaneous. Also i LOVE the term “faux-to-booth”!

Great, no monitor it is and one less thing to worry about!
@mchitt329: I just wasnn’t sure! I have never beent o one run by the photographer (and my photographer has never done it, it was a custom request) so I wasn’t sure if people would miss it.
What would you advise each group of people are allowed per time-3 quick shots?
Meaning at a standard photobooth, you get three shots, then leave and the next group goes in. Would you do the same in this situation?
