And she cancelled five minutes before the shoot. This was 115 minutes after I started my snowy drive into Chicago, found parking, and started unloading the car. I'm not shooting TFP's anymore, and people seek my photographic services then they can pay me not for my mediocre skills, but for my time away from my wife, depreciation of my equipment and car, and fuel. Of course I doubt I'll ever get contacted again, but that isn't that bad either.

To not completely waste my time, I shot some water droplets instead. I will likely be the only member here that no longer posts glamour photography until a punctual and serious model can convince me to start shooting people again...

For those of you are curious about how I did this sans glamour image...I used a sheet of bronze plexiglass that is available at your local home improvement store for less than $20. Then I suspended some white silk underneath, and below the silk three Nikon Speedlights with different intensities of orange gel.

Thanks Marty. Speaking of models...why couldn't I find models like yours when I was living in your area years ago?

I've always been lucky in finding the girls...Only one girl I have ever posted has ever done any modeling. My Father always told me even if your not going to charge them, ask for a deposit, and tell them when they show up you will return it. If they don't, atleast you covered some expenses! Merry Christmas.

Unless it was a gunshot wound to the eye, I don't think any excuse she gives would be worthy..

Not that it helps, but tell people she unreliable. Word gets around fast..

Either way it is her loss.. I looked at her MM port and it sucks ass.

Some people just don't get it.. Sorry, but keep in mind, not all women (and I refrain from using the word model) are like that.

The reason was that she went out with a friend and the car got stuck in the snow, which had to be towed out. Clearly not on par with a gunshot wound to the head.

I've heard of this phenomenon, Jimmy. I can't fathom why anyone would pass up cash...

and sometimes it's a pretty fair amount of cash. if that chic who flaked on you is a stripper... well... nuff said. it sez it all. they're, as a rule, the flakiest.

that doesn't explain the phone call that wasn't made until 5 minutes before your scheduled time to shoot.
