    I'm in the NE San Antonio area (Converse) and I'm interested in joining a local group. I've been out of the LF photo arena for a quarter century and am only now climbing back in to keep the fight going. I'll go to meetings.

    Woops... looks like this thread was started in '07. OP probably lost interested very early on. Anyone else want to start a group? I'm too old and lazy...

    Hey Mike1234, you're in San Antonio! You responded to my wanted ad for 9x12 film sheaths. Cool. I'm in Austin, but I'd also be interested in meeting you central Texas film dudes in San Antonio, Austin or points in between.

    No one has made any solid proposals yet. How about September 12th? We could meet in the basement of the Alamo.

    I'm also in Austin, like half the folks who have responded here. I would be interested, but I'm primarily interested in color film processing and printing right not, especially sharing resources, equipment and chemistry. I'll start a new thread on that, but I'll check back about this group also.

    Interestingly, as many folks in Austin responded to this thread even though the SATX area has nearly twice the population as Austin... must be the demographics.

    At any rate, hey, I'm definitely into some meetings. Maybe some place in the middle... San Marcos or New Braunfels??

    Mike,

    Yes, there's a big differance in demographics between Austin and SA... actually there's a pretty big differance between Austin and the rest of the state, not that that's a bad thing... then again, maybe it is a bad thing. We only have one "serious" camera shop down here in SA and their non-digital selection seems to shrink a little bit each time I go in there, I'm pretty sure Austin has a little better selection so the demographics work to their advantage in some cases.

    Speaking of our lack of photo "resources" here in San Antonio... I'm just getting back into analog photography after about a decade of not having picked up a camera that wasn't digital. I almost fell over when I went in to the prolab to pick up my first batch of 4x5 that I had processed and contact printed... almost $100 bucks for 20 sheets! Ouch.

    I have some extra space in my shop and had been considering building a darkroom back there. The cost of having LF processing done here in SA pretty well made my mind up on that issue.

    Now the question is... Is there sufficient interest in the SA area to have a "community" darkroom? I would supply the space and all of the hardware, but would be interested in renting out time to other area photographers to use the room for their own work. The room would be equipped with a JOBO for processing, as well as trays, and a couple of enlargers, including an 8x10 color enlarger, overall it would be fairly nicely equipped from a hardware standpoint.

    I'm building the darkroom either way, but if there's sufficient interest I will probably make it a little bit bigger if I'm not the only one who is going to be stumbling around in there.

    Any thoughts or interest in this?

    Thanks,

    John
