    I've been reading and posting a little in this forum for a few days now. I am bummed I didn't find this place before now. It is good to read post by thoughtful and friendly photographers.

    I've been shooting for almost 20 years and find I am just as excited to get out and photograph today as I was then. Watching a print come up in the soup still gives me a tingle.

    I shoot medium and not so large (8x10) format. Am looking to get into the ULF when I can.

    I found an 8x10 enlarger a few years ago and still am amazed by the quality of the prints at 20x24.

    How do I set up a regional focus group for Minnesota?

    I look forward to further discussions in this group.

    Welcome to APUG!
    Don't feel bad for not having found this place until just recently... after all... you found it! :wink: That's the important part! Welcome from another Wisconsonite! (Sorry Peter...Wisconsonian sounds way to much like Smithsonian). haha :smile:

    8x10 is larger than I would like to dog around but you already know that this group covers everything from sub-mini to whopping big. It is hard to ask a question and not receive several answers from others with experience.

    Welcome. It is a good resource and a nice community.

    Greetings from Nordeast. A regional group for the Cities, MN, or even the upper midwest is a good idea.

    Hello fellow Minnesotan. I would send a note to Sean or post something in the Feedback and Discussion forum regarding a Minnesota focus group.

    Welcome... I'm just over the border in Wisconsin but I work for a St Paul based company that brings me over there quite often.

    A return hello from St. Louis Park. A regional focus group for our area sounds interesting. Keep us posted.

    I'd be interested in a regional focus group as well.
