I'm nervous of meeting people and group things but think it would be fun. Logistically speaking, meeting anywhere would be tough for me unfortunately. When I worked at a camera store I met one man who shot 4x5 (beautiful wisner camera) and he was the only one..
When I first came to this town from the Providence RI/New Bedford MA area, I found the one photo store and asked if they had 4x5 film.
They said no. I then asked for 120. They said no. Then they hired me.
