I'm located in Placentia, north central Orange County. Sort of in between Brea, Yorba Linda and Anaheim. Which means absolutely nothing if you're from Wisconsin.
Given that we have this many analog and probably large format shooters in the area, who is for talking with me off-line but over the phone about organizing our own "art association" of film and medium/large format photographers?
I've tried to talk with the local art associations and most of them, when I can actually find them, barely acknowledge film photography as an art.
That's OK. To each his own. However, there is probably a lot that we as film users could do to preserve, promote and enhance the film and larger format art.
I would be able to publish newletters, keep lists, scout out meeting and shooting venues and collaborate with anyone else who could contribute perhaps 2-4 hours per week.
