My dear husband actually called me to tell me he had overtime this weekend (12 hours each day). I said, that's too bad! I'll miss shooting with you. . . . But I'm still going to the shoot! Then, he told me he was just yanking my chain, and he didn't have to go in this weekend! LOL So, I would have, if I had to, but at this point, I haven't had to go alone. I'm sorry you're in that boat. Maybe you can meet some new and interesting people while you're there!
Yep, I have.....Lots of times....One time, I ended up with a good job as a result of going to a 3-D shoot alone...Ended up shooting with a stranger, we hit it off pretty good, He offered me a job, as an Apprentice Machinist, and 18 years later, I'm still crankin' handles, and making chips......Sometimes, having your buddies not show up works out.....Jim
I like shooting local shoots by myself from time to time. You can really concentrate and work on your fundamentals. Or you can get paired up with some new people and make some new friends. Shooting is better than working!
I have to, there aren't many people I know who are able to get time off to shoot due to work and families. I have found there are some really nice "strangers" out there though. It seems like, more times than not, those people are willing to help me learn the in's and out's of shooting.
