A fun trend that started in South Korea (no surprise there), it reached the shores of Singapore with much welcome and enthusiasm. Compared to Malaysia, there are a lot more self-photo studios in Singapore for people to go to hold their own mini photoshoots with friends, family or partner. The perfect remedy for those who get shy in front of the camera, you will have the privacy to make all the silly faces you want in any of these self-photo studios.
Check out these 7 self-photo studios for your next outing with your loved ones and take some professional selfies instead!
1. Dollop Automat Self Studio
Inspired by the Bosco Automat which was the very first automated photo booth that was invented in 1890, Dollop Automat Self Studio (and you will notice that other photo studios as well) chose the name Automat to honour their vintage aesthetic roots. Combining studio-quality black and white prints with cutting-edge technology, take all the photos you want in their latest photo booth concept which is located at 30A Seah Street and 21A Arab Street too! Choose from light or dark backgrounds and then, you will get 15 minutes of photo shooting where you can do all the poses you want. There are also props that you can use. You’ll get to print 4 photos of your choice with the option to add on if you want extra prints.
Always wanted that photo booth scene you see all the time in rom-coms? I’m sure you know what I’m talking about – there is always a scene where the couple would take cute pictures in the small photobooth and out comes a strip of four pictures for them to reminisce at later in the movie. Well, you get to recreate this with your partner at Fotoautomat which can be found at The Projector and Projector X. Take note that you can’t print multiple copies but don’t worry, you can just take more until you are satisfied! As no prior booking is required, you might want to head over during non-peak hours so that you have all the time you need.
3. 123 ChiCha
The first immersive selfie photo studio in Singapore, 123 ChiCha is open 24 hours which means you have no excuse to not take gorgeous pictures here. With over 20 photo spots and themes that takes up two levels, you can choose from any or all of these to take pictures within the chosen timeframe that you have paid for. At $80 per pax for 2 hours, it is an experience you should try as they also provide unlimited access to the costumes, props and self-service makeup that are on site. The themes are refreshed every three to six months so that there is always something new for their customers. What are you waiting for? Grab your besties and take the best selfies ever here!
Spice up your shots with colourful light modes at Photobytes instead of the usual black and white pictures. Get the RGB colour which as the name suggests consists of a selection of red, green, or blue backdrops to take fun pictures with your friends or partner. Pets are also allowed here as they are a pet-friendly studio, so you can bring your furkids along and have a photoshoot with them. Another great idea is to choose the Twilight mode where you can use the sunset or violet lighting to get that artistic vibe – props are available for you to use as well!
This is the place to go if you like monotone aesthetics (and can’t seem to get over your shyness in front of the camera). Monochrome photography is Fotomat’s specialty. Because, let’s face it, black and white photography is timeless. With the best setup and equipment to capture your precious moments, all you need is to press the shutter that is in your hand – simple and no frills needed. Enjoy 15 minutes of unrestricted photo taking, and as part of the $30 package, take home two printed images from the session the same day.
6. Blank Box SG
Looking to take vibrant and lively pictures with your family, friends and even your pet? This is the place to be. You get to choose from four coloured backgrounds – yellow, pink, brown and green. With dressing rooms and a large space within the studio, you can change your clothes with ease and your pets and children can have the run of the place without any worries. Open 24 hours, you can find Blank Box SG at Mandai Connection. They are currently running a promotion – $40 with all soft copies returned and up to 5 pax without extra charges.
