Back story

Last weekend, I had an absolute blast at my wedding.

So too, apparently, did my guests - who absolutely loved taking shots with the photo booth!

What makes this DIY photo booth special?

My photo booth is unique for the following reasons;

  1. It was the 1st project I ever built with a Raspberry Pi, and it’s a great starting point for beginners.
  2. It takes a “less is more” approach;
    • I opted to exclude features that weren’t essential.
    • The code runs on both Python 2.7 and Python 3.
    • The code introduces very few libraries/dependencies, in the hopes of delivering a solution that “just works”.
