    A friend and I organized a ohio strobist meet for this saturday. What in the hell did I get my self into:wtc: it's been a nightmare... the photographer to model ratio has went insane we've got way more photographers than we expected, and not nearly as many models... something that was supposed to be fun is now stressing me the fuck out.... I hope I at least get some good shots out of the day

    both... I have a contact at MM who hooked me up with 5 models... and we had a couple sign up through the strobist groups on flickr to model, but we still need about 10 more :hs: craigslist netted me nothing but spam replies.

    man sucks about that, good luck with that.

    Personally I can't stand those shooting events, there's little chance to make real contact with the model

    contact through MM put me in contact with the guy who leases the building. A few phone calls later we had the building locked up.
