We all went to a photo studio before. Whether it is to take the most common passport size photo or the most precious family portrait, some of us would feel awkward or uncomfortable to smile naturally in front of a stranger-photographer. Perfectly designed to give customers some privacy, Korean inspired self-photo studios are emerging as a trend these days in Malaysia. No more camera-shy, here are some self-photo studios in Kuala Lumpur (KL) that you can visit for the perfect, self-taken photographs!

Self-photo studios are charging a reasonable price
Although we all can get our own photos taken at home, it won’t be the same as those taken at these photo studios. From the camera to the lighting and backdrop, these are important perks of getting your photos taken at a studio. While professional studios charged a higher price with a photographer, the price of a self-photo studio is reasonable and allows you to feel at ease in the session.
