    It surprises me that with over 6 million people living in the metro area that NY doesnt have a more active regional group. Sooo I was just wondering if there are any lfers that might want to correspond or go shoot once in a while I would be interested. I shoot with 4x5 dorff, mamiya rz 67, and just picked up a 8x10 century studio.

    If you count Brooklyn as part of LI them I'm here as well as some others. I shoot 4X5 Tachi. I'm most always interested in a group shoot.

    Actually, there are over 20 million in the NY Metro area. :wink:

    As to LI - there are a few active folk on and I suspect they'll check in here soon enough.

    I don't need an excuse to travel to New York. So that makes at least two of us.

    Ron, from Islip, NY !
    I haven't pressed a cable release since 1981 .
    I am ready to get the camera back on the tripod .
    I have the equipment , just don't remember how to use it .
    Could definitely use some help and advice .
    Also looking to join a camera club in the Suffolk county area,
    if such things still exist .

    Welcome to Apug John. I think you missed the gathering from this post, slightly, but hey it never hurts to call up another round.

    Welcome To APUG !

    Welcome To APUG John !

    Methinks, we might have a group for you.
    I just sent you an invitation to join The Long Island @ Large Format Group.
    But, I'm only using a wee 4X5 Camera, at the moment ...
    There is also The Manhattan MeetUp Group, I've met with them twice in the
    past few months. And those guys seem to like to MeetUp in Brooklyn every
    once in a while. You should consider joining that group also.

    Enjoy The Weekend !

    You beat me to it Ron!

    John, feel free to join our manhattan meetups! I just sent you an invite to the group. We've been meeting about once a month. If there's anywhere in particular you'd like to explore, feel free to make a suggestion!
