    Well, that is a start.

    Perhaps informal critique is a way forward.

    We need to define a purpose for meeting. Most photographers seem to be independent operators compared to my movie making friends.

    Are we meeting for,

    Fellowship?
    Critique?
    Business advice?
    Hobbyist purposes?
    Gear swap?
    Location sharing?
    Technical advice?
    Darkroom visits?
    Studio visits?
    I dunno, but why?

    I am a retired mechanic turned photo hobbyist, that chose LF 3 years ago as something to keep me sane. I know most of my images are not great, but I strive for improvement. However, deadly critique could kill my hobby. I have a MFA from SAIC, so I do know critique and how they can go bad...or good. I consider LF process a Performance Art.

    We will be common to each other only by our choice to live in Chicago and shoot LF.

    I am not trying to put a damper on things, but I do realize how independent we all may be.

    I often quote Groucho Marx, "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member."

    I personally will attend as part of my plan to achieve world domination. Any activities that aren't specifically planned to crush that will be OK with me. My shop (and studio) is right across the street from the cafe, if few enough people show up to not freak me out letting people see my place.

    So, critiquing Randy and crushing my world domination scenario are out. That still leaves a bit.

    You should say something on the Midwest Large Format Asylum's website. Lots of folks from Chicago there, and not everyone cares to drive. There's no reason why people can't participate in both groups.

    Politically, aerodynamically, and fashionably incorrect.

    Got me to laugh, and that's tough.

    I will meet at the cafe, I am often in the area.

    OK! 11am! The coffee shop is on the NE corner of Adams and Wabash, about 100 feet East of the corner, towards the Art Institute, and I'll be there. Anyone else interested can show up!

    I was busy. Perhaps 24 hour notice would work better for me.
