I just joined the forum last night so I know I'm late responding. If you're still looking for folks shooting with film in Baton Rouge, then count me in.
Check out the lomo group here (http://www.meetup.com/Lomographers-of-Acadiana/). There are more of us. (Not many more, but there are more of us.)

Huh, three years gone in the thread. I've been around BR-NO shooting film for a long time, but I haven't seen many others outside of Mardi Gras or festivals. When Kadairs closed I basically lost the only store I knew that still gave a damn about film customers. They did some excellent color medium format enlargements for me. Bennett's in Metairie was the next best thing I knew about, but became clear to me that they have zero interest in film biz, they just want to sell digicams and help seniors make digital prints that anyone under 40 knows how to do at home or the Walgreens kiosk without assistance. That was way too ranty, but it's been that kind of day.
Take a camera for a walk in the woods or city before evening to relax they make good companions.
I was in Baton Rouge last summer, but had family in tow and didn't get out as much as I had hoped. I spent my junior and high school years in South Louisiana, and my wife is from there. Anyway, I'm drawn to depressed areas, and driving down Government Street without being able to stop for all the photo ops I saw was quite painful. I shot this at the Wal-Mart on College Drive.
