When it came to building our photo booth, we were heavily inspired by a fantastic giant camera photo booth on instructables.
We put together a base from a scrap piece of wood and part of one of our kitchen stools. We attached a borrowed monitor and small camera tripod.
such a messy kitchen!
The giant camera cover was made from sign boards from the University of Ottawa recycling centre and lots of duct tape.

For the first part of the night, we used a wireless mouse in a plastic container to activate the camera. Basically it was a big button promsters could tap with their foot to take a picture.
When things started getting busy, we put away the button and set the camera to automatically take a picture every 5 seconds.
You can see all the photos taken here (warning, there's over 1300!).
