By far, I live in Chicago. I've been taking LF here for 4 years and I didn't have any "Photography friends" who can share information with. It's might be good to have some group of friends who can go to take picture. My girlfriend, she seem didn't like to take a trip with me because she have to wait in the car while you ran out to take picture... Mannn..
I don't know anyone have this kind of problem. I feel like if you're taking a picture alone, you didn't have anything to compare or to share with. Also, you didn't know how far you go by only your pictures. If anyone lives in Chicago or nearby, we might group together for a trip.. should be nice.. or if you guys have a group already, can you guys let me join your group too.
