I try to gauge where my students’ interests lie.
A safe bet? They like to photograph people.
So a visit to Shutter Stories, a photography studio in Riverside, was a good choice considering we are already into late November. The outdoors is getting a little chilly and the scenery is looking a little drab.
Melissa Tippie, the owner, was such a gracious host that I’m be planning on using this as one of my field trips again.
They offer a student rate of $30 an hour with a 2-hour minimum.
So the price of $60 is very reasonable. That gives you access to one Pocket Wizard transmitter and at least 3 receivers so that all the studio strobes will fire.
I brought along 3 of my own radio slaves for a total of 4 to be shared between 12 students.
We had 3 different setups so there was more than enough to keep everyone busy.
I brought along one model, Stephanie, just so none of my students had to be the model for the instruction part of the field trip.
Below are some pictures from 2 of my students Bernice Quesada and Phil Stuart. When I get more from the others, I’ll post them.
