Anybody from Alabama?
I'm in Birmingham, Alabama. Have lived in Huntsville and Montgomery, AL too--so I'm familiar with those areas.
I shoot medium format with a Hassy 500CM, Mamiya RB67, and Mamiya 645 Super. I've been a people photographer mostly, but am venturing back into fine art and landscape.
Kinda lonely being a film lover nowadays!

I'm not from Alabama, but I do want to say welcome to APUG. You aren't going to feel lonely here.

Welcome, and don't give up on film. The quality you can get with your setup kills the best digital pix, IMO. You can mail order supplies if you have to! There is Freestyle, Samy's, B&H, and there are more shops as well.
I am not from there, but I just passed near your town on a cross-country road trip this January. I was on the way to stay with a friend of a friend up in Jasper, on Corridor X. I got one of my favorite pictures from an offramp there the next day. The next day, I went up smaller roads (69, 79, U.S. 72; through Guntersville and Scotsboro) into Chattanooga. BEAUTIFUL state, and beautiful part of the state. Lucky you!

Yes, there are some........ but the others here do not hold it against us. I live in Montgomery, but, was in the Birmingham area for a number of years.

I'm over in Alpharetta Georgia, but wanted to mention the Rod Run at Noccalula Falls this weekend. I'm driving over from Atlanta and would love to meet photogs from Alabama. I'm originally from Cullman myself.
