    Any interest in starting a SE Michigan LF Group 2010?

    Hi,

    I am relatively new to LF and live and work in SE Michigan. I am looking to see if there is any interest from anyone in the area interested in either starting a group/club or just to get together from time-to-time to photograph people, places, things of interest around SE Michigan.

    I searched the forums but found nothing recent or relevant.

    Regards,
    Charlie

    I'm in Redford MI. keep me posted if you get a group together. I have not heard of any groups for just large Format in the area.

    Give the Midwest Large Format Asylum a try: http://www.midwestlargeformat.com/

    We have folks from all over, including northern Ohio (Cleveland-ish). I'm in Elkhart, IN and have always wondered what there was to photograph up your way.

    Politically, aerodynamically, and fashionably incorrect.

    I'll be in Detroit for a while, actually grosse pointe today but I wouldn't mind meeting up on a weekend for some shooting.

    I lived on West Ida Lane in GPW for 27 years. Now I'm in South Carolina.
    Would have been nice to have a LF group then! Good luck.

    I am in Farmington. We should set a date and place and give it a try! I sometimes shoot in the city, but I could use some backup! Eastern Market is a good location, Belle Isle as well. Cranbrook is another option, but requires prior authorization. Any takers?

    Glad to see there is a little interest. Thanks to all those who responded. A few may be interested in shooting sometime by the posts. (Jacob, Vinny & David) Just to put it out there, my schedule is on most occasions full during the week. But with just a little notice usually I could make Saturday or Sunday available to meet somewhere. Not opposed to traveling a bit either. Detroit, Port Huron, someone mentioned Cranbrook (with permission) etc. Just to name a few, I am game and don't mind rising early to meet somewhere if necessary. Or later...

    I could be available this Saturday or Sunday.
    Probably not the following WE
    But the WE of the 23rd would be ok.

    I would think Cranbrook would be nice if we could get the proper permission (not sure where/how) Or Detroit (yes with backup).

    Detroit offers lots. I would love to shoot the old train station but don't know how to get the proper permission.

    So let me know if anyone wants to try something soon.

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    Thanks Mike,

    I did check out the LF group and signed up. I will keep an eye out for anything in the area etc.

    Thanks,

    Jon,

    Well of course it would figure. You were only about 5 blocks from me on Severn, and just around the corner from Monteith where my son just started Tuesday!

    It would be great to find some interest around the area.

    I was working in the train station (and did some shooting) last month for the job I'm on. Pieces of concrete randomly fall off the ceiling. Transformers 3 is/was supposed to film there as well. Great place but not safe, and not easy to get into since they board it up when not in use.
