    So I've just recently migrated from the world of 2/3 photography (read: digital) to medium format! I'm eager to learn and get out there to shoot some film.

    If anybody is interested in some social outings for photography, I think it would be great way to meet the APUG community here and perhaps learn from each other. Any thoughts?

    Welcome to APUG!

    To arrange meetings with apuggers, have a look in the geographical locations forum or the APUG regional focus groups. I am sure you'll find some friendly apuggers nearby. Workshops are also a great way to meet others, sample their gear, and see their work.

    Welcome!

    What medium format camera do you have your eye on? Or already bought?

    I just recently acquired a Hasselblad 500cm and before that a Fujifilm gs645s!

    Finding reasonably priced film and dev/print services are crucial to enjoying yourself around the GTA. There really aren't that many quality film-friendly labs left outside of Silvano's and TIW. Silvano's probably has the best prices on film. There's so much to shoot around the GTA- what interests you?

    I'm into architecture, landscapes and about anything static :smile: I've yet to really learn much about photographing people!

    Suggest a site/location/subject for an outing and offer to organize it. You'll likely get some bites depending on where you are in the GTA.

    Downtown Camera's pretty good for the dev side of things as well, and there's always Colourgenics if you can afford them.

    I assume you are in the GTA area since you posted in the Toronto regional forum. Welcome to APUG and the MF world. I like going out with people and have been on several photo-shoots with APUG colleagues. Do you have any suggestion or location in mind?
