Thanks Jim and everyone for your comments! I am also looking forward to another great year! When APUG started I was shooting 35mm, and large format seemed like something WAY beyond my grasp. The members here made me feel like anything was possible with my photography, and the strong sense of community makes me feel like someone always has my back. In just a few days I'll be shooting my first 8x10!!! I owe that to the encouragement and inspiration from the members here
Sometimes it can be a struggle to find 'admin' time for the site, yet no one has ever made me feel like it is a problem. I'd like to also thank our sponsors and members for their financial support in the running of APUG. You are such a generous bunch in so many ways, it is truly an honor to be associated with you.
Stay tuned for some 8x10 contact print scans!
