    Greetings from New Mexico

    Hello all.

    My name is Allen. I’ve been lurking for a few months and thought that it was about time to surface. Hats off to everyone for making this such a great resource!

    I primarily make use of LF and B&W. I would like to start making pt/pd prints again, and APUG seems to be an excellent place to get back up to speed. Lots of knowledgeable and helpful folks.

    I am new to the Albuquerque area, so if there are any APUGers here, give me a shout.

    Welcome, Allen, from one who lives in Pennsylvania but loves New Mexico. (I attended NMSU back in the late '70s, and got to spend lots of weekends in the Albuquerque, Española, and Santa Fe areas.) If only I'd been into LF back then!

    APUG's a great place to learn...I've learned more here than all of the other photo sites combined.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.

    Greetings from Albuquerque, Allen! Where did you move here from?

    Hey Jacob,

    I came to the Albuquerque area from South Texas, Corpus Christi to be exact. The landscape here is much more to my liking.

    When you get some time, we need to discuss the local photographic community.

    Welcome Allen from Hawaii. I've been to Albuquerque a few times, I found it to be a nice area. I'm sure you will enjoy this forum.

    Welcome Allen. I am in Santa Fe and can honestly say the photo "scene" is much more active up here then in ABQ. I lived down there for about 3 years and I am happier up here. At least somewhat happier.

    Anyway, welcome to the group.

    I agree with David. Santa Fe has a very active art community. There isn't that much going on in Albuquerque, though. We do have the Enchanted Lens Camera Club (http://www.swcp.com/camera). One of the people I've talked to from the group says that many of the members are going digital. Also, you might stop into Camera & Darkroom or Kurt's (both are pro shops on Central Ave, close to UNM). If you're looking to do any business in the artistic photo scene, take the short drive to Santa Fe.

    I went to one of the club meetings once. I was much too young for the group.

    As for the camera shops, I use them for emergency purchases only. They both charge retail and often do not have what I am looking for. Also, the last straw was when I asked for Tri-X and the salesperson asked what Tri-X was.

    Now, I just order from Calumet, Freestyle or Adorama.

    Camera and darkroom was much better when they were in their old digs. The new place and the new workers are not nearly as friendly. I have no idea what the guy's name is but the gent with one arm is way knowledgeable and lots of help. I talk to him and no one else when i get to camera and darkroom. He definately knows what Tri-X is. I never liked Kurt's. Too Snobby.
