    SW Ohio (Dayton) newbie to group

    Greetings,

    Looking to see what kind of activity this Great Lakes Region as far as South West Oh, KY and IN areas. I live here in Dayton Ohio. I enjoy shooting 6X6 and 645, dable in 4x5, do the D word too.

    I'm looking for others in the area to see if this group is active in this area, outings, swap meets gatherings and such.

    I too am in Dayton (I work downtown by Schuster). My boss mainly shoots the D stuff, but I'm migrating back to analog after quite a while (35mm and 6x6), though I still like to play around with the strobist style stuff too. I'm relatively new to APUG after having been a lurker for quite a while. I've noticed that the two main local clubs/groups are almost entirely non-analog any more so I haven't really been interested in joining them. Depending on what subject matter you like to shoot I've noticed that the MetroParks from time to time have some decent nature walks and photography related activities. Plus Outdoor Photographer has Sugarcreek Metropark listed as one of their top favorite places to shoot.

    Unfortunately, most photo groups, events, and activities seems to be in either Columbus or Cinci.

    Chiron,

    Hi, welcome, I have found this thread but see there is hardly no activity in it. Glad to see someone else out here enjoys film too.

    Opportunity to cross paths this weekend, talk about photography and learn some things. Sat and Sun at the Dayton Convention center is the Professional Photographers of Ohio Convention. I'm going on Sunday. I will only attend the trade show part. I have 1/2 off coupons in pdf format if you would like me to email it to you.

    I'm at daleeman@yahoo.com

    Hi,
    Just was down at the Pro Photographers of Ohio conference in Dayton this weekend. Had a good time. Let loose my old Mamiya 645 stuff to KEH. Cold not part with the Hassy.

    Wondered how active this group is/was.

    There are some APUGers from OH, PA, MI, and more who sporadically gather at the Cuyahoga National Park on the eastern end of OH. It's a good group - just keep your eye on threads on this area to see when something gets planned again. If that's too far for you, come up with something near you to shoot and you may be able to entice some to travel your direction.

    Bethe,
    Thanks for the insight. I used to live in Rocky River up by Cleveland and enjoyed the area... in the summer! Hope to find this gathering and attend.

    The one really big event here is the Dayton Air Show, although I get burned out on it year after year it can be great fun with press passes, you can go just about anywhere and shoot from some incredible angles.

    There is a lot of beautiful country here too but as one who has lived in this area for a while, I oftne thing of other places first before my own back yard.

    Welcome to APUG. Check out the NE OH Gathering May 14-16, 2010 thread that ic-racer linked. My wife Dolly and I are the hosts. All film shooters welcome. We have done several of these over the past two years. There are usually people there from four surrounding states or further. It has been a chance for like minded people to get together, and fun for all. Our guests seem to have liked it because they have taken very good care of the place while having fun and they keep coming back. One bad apple could make a mess of it, but our guests have made that not happen.
