Field Trips

Of all the field trips we’ve taken in the past, this was one of the most people intensive photography of them all, and just plain fun.

There were plenty of costumed performers and willing models to keep you busy all day long. I had my mind set on going in custom but at the last minute decided against it.

Field Trips
