I'm in Prospect Heights in the NW burbs. If people are interested on January 26 the Midwest Large Format group will have their annual portfolio review in Chesterton,IN. See http://www.largeformatphotography.in...owing-Jan-2013
Can't say I go to many outings but I have made several portfolio reviews and they have excellent work and nice people. A word of warning: they do allow digital prints to be shown. It would be interesting to have something similar for local APUG people. Have to rent a space (or have someone with a big enough space volunteer) and people could bring some prints for everyone to see. Analog only of course. Are any of you locals involved in any formal regular meeting photo groups?
