Hurry, Hurry, Hurry while they are still available! I picked these up at Radio Shack and they are mini phone splitters. As we show in the photo three of them can connect up so that you can run four strobes from one Pocket Wizard or Radio Popper. A vey simple solution that costs just a few dollars.
Since I started teaching, finding a simple solution for students to fire multiple strobes attached to a FourSquare block has been a challenge. This seems to be as cheap as I could find. You can check out one of my other posts on the “Belkin Rock Star” hub. Does exactly the same thing but differently.
Having been around for a few years, I have acquired a number of backgrounds, silks, diffusers and fabrics. In cleaning and purging the studio I needed a solution for storing all of the backgrounds that needed to be stuffed. I don’t fold my fabric backgrounds I just stuff them. It keeps the wrinkles pristine. I just use laundry bags that I purchased from IKEA to hold all the different backgrounds. It is a cheap and easy solution. It lets us seen what’s in the bag. We made little ID tags from gaff tape with dimensions and cable tied it to one of the corners of the background.
They then all get piled on the storage shelves with the ID tags facing out so we can easily find what we are looking for. It really helped in organizing all the fabrics.
