    wow.. glad it's over. We had a huge hiccup... Friday night, one of the main models was upset that we didn't have enough models and thought the day would be to hectic... so she canceled... then 2 more canceled leaving us with 5 models.... well fast forward to saturday. About 10, photographers start showing up (remember, this was to start @ 9am) an hour goes by, more photographers, but no models.... 1045, a few more photographers, but still, no models. The remaining 5 models were no shows :madfawk: and we had 22 photographers as no shows as well..... but in the end, we still all had a good time shooting each other. I didn't shoot to much, but I'm working on what I did get. If anyone wants to see the pics from the others, just search for the tag "hon08" on flickr.

    :werd: we've come up with some good ideas for next time to help ensure the models don't flake out, and to interest more models in coming. This was truly a learning experience....

    Best part of the day was getting to borrow a 5D.... I'm definitely picking one up when the 5DmkII comes out.

    Sounds like the models smelled a gang rape and got scared.

    Clearly you've never kidnapped anyone. Use a sack of oranges, it doesn't leave bruising.

    or you can just take pics of them bruised, scared and crying and call it "art"
