Our church was looking a way to making a photo directory , I suggested making a photo booth. Well you know when you have an idea some time you end up the one making it. I started out just making a plan box to hold the PC and the monitor. Well that was to easy. I have about 20 hours to build this 3’x 3’ over sized camera. I will add more details if anyone is interested. I am amazed how much people love it.

I found most of the info about what goes inside the box to make an easy photo booth here http://www.techphotoblog.com/tpb-22

Very cool idea! The “Easy” button is a nice touch. Is the booth controlled by the subjects, or by someone on the outside?

Don the “easy” button is wired to the left button on the mouse. The progam runs after you push the easy button. Depending how you set it up it takes up to 4 pictures and then prints them off. We have it so it just saves to the PC.

It just had an 16×16 door on the back to get to the pc. I don’t have any picks of it and we have upgraded it to a full size booth.

Next time you feel like tweaking it again, sparkfun.com sells big colored buttons the same size as the “Easy botton,” but they a) don’t have text on them, and b) light up! I used one as the trigger for a photobooth for my wedding as well. https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9181
