    Hello TPF

    Well I really dont know what to do now to help out my photography teacher and all the photo classes at my school so I decided to post the problem here.

    The problem: Basicly one of the capcitors in the flash box from out studio blew out and scorched some of the box. Speedotron (will get more details) said it would cost $500 just to repair it! Whats sad is our school can't afford to fix this flash box or buy a new one. My school has a nice studio too along with big softboxes and 2 strobes with a huge backdrop. Does anyone know where we can get something like this fixed a lot cheaper or does anyone have a one they can sell for cheap? If you have any ideas or comments please post or email me at skultep@eravedesigns.com. If you would like to talk to my photography teacher as well I can get you his contact.

    The box we currently have is something like this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/con...019&is=REG&addedTroughType=categoryNavigation

    it is probobly that model.

    Thanks
    -Phil

    ya we sorta do that stuff but more in the field like we make tshirts and stuff but it would take about 2 years of doing that to get enough money.

    Go to costco and buy boxs and boxs of candy (recess, snickers, twix, skittles etc...) and buy a bunch of big plastic bags. The candy costs about $10 for 30 bars so you make $20 off every box. Give everyone in the class a variety bag of candy to sell. I sell candy at my school (for myself) and make profit of around $100 a week. If you had a class of people doing that you could really rake in some money pretty fast.

    Try and be a little discreet when you sell it tho as most schools in the U.S. have banned candy and all that bad for you food. So basically don't make a sale infront of the administrators. I keep my candy in a lunch bag which keeps it nice and cool, you might want to try that too if you guys have some lunch bags at home.

    Good luck fixing it.
