    I'm just getting into advance large format B&W. I'm in NJ and looking to get out to test. If anyone is interested in shooting in NY or NJ, let me know.

    Just wanted to add: I live in Asbury Park, which has the run-down boardwalk and buildings, perfect for large-format. I also have a darkroom close by that can be used. I have 4x5 and 8x10 hangers and Jobo Cpp2 that will be set up within 2 weeks. I also have a UV box for Platinum. Hopefully we could chip in for some Azo paper and Platinum supplies. Ok to private message me.

    Man alive, you're right down the road from me!

    I'm in Middletown - on the wet side the highway in the stretch of Rt 36 between Port Monmouth and Keansburg!

    you're welcome HP. You have to reload a lot on these boards. I think we have given the thread enough time, so if people could list the weekends they are free, we could pick a date. - Jim

    I don't check the regional posts much. I'm up in North Jersey (Rockaway Twsp.) and willing to travel. I'll be gone the next two weekends but if it's OK I'll start tracking this thread. I shoot M/F to 8x10, B&W only.

    I could be interested as well, as long as it's someplace accessible by public transportation from Manhattan. My schedule will be kind of touch-and-go all summer, but post the date and location here, and if I can make it, I'll be in contact.

    If we do Asbury Park, there are NJ Transit trains run right into town from NYC. If you can't get a train that goes past Long Branch (where the electrified line ends and diesel begins), I can pick you up anywhere from Middletown on south - have cargo van, will travel! :smile:

    My schedule is kinda screwy at the moment, but the only date that is out of the question is Friday June 10th. I'm pretty flexible otherwise (given a bit of notice).

    I also can get a van. A few great parks in the area as well, as Bob can vouch to, I'm sure. I'm very flexible, Sundays are best. - Jim

    Looks like trains to NJ are going to be a little messed up for a while. I could see the smoke from the bridge fire from my apartment.

    I can make most Sundays, as well, with the exception of May 22 and June 6.

    David, I'd be glad to take a swing over the GWB and pick you up on my way down. That way you could take your really BIG camera...

    So far June 18th (Saturday) is the day that everyone who posted can make it. The 19th is Father's day. Does this work for everyone? So far 6 people + myself and a friend are interested. Are we up for silver, platinum, azo??? - Jim

    I'm up for anything, but, what are we doing - shooting, printing or both?
