Let's see how this goes. This is my first time taking this camera to the general public. I'll be shooting portraits on Impossible Project/Polaroid Originals 8x10 instant film, during an evening at the Soap gallery in downtown Youngstown. It's Saturday Aug. 11 from 5 to 8pm. Good response and a lot of interest so far.

Thank you both. I'm a nervous wreck about it! Been working to make it as idiot proof (for me) as possible. I'm staking out tape positions on the floor for camera, posing stool and light. I want everything as "constant" as possible.

get one of those egg things on a string to mark off the distance and perfect focus
i david goldfarb uses one of those ( or he's talked about using one ? ) with one of his
giant cameras ( not sure if it is the 8x10 or 11x14 he was using ) might be help
if the light isn't super bright.
i wish i lived close by but it seems all the stuff i wasnt to see watch attend
is hundreds or thousands of miles away from me ( toronto, san fran and youngstown ) ..

That's the way to do it.
You'll be a regular Elsa Dorfman.

I live just outside of Youngstown and will definitely be stopping by- it's not often that the area blesses me with activity that's relevant to my (film-related) hobbies and I can't pass up a chance to meet and support a fellow APUGer.

In other words- I'll see you there!

Absolutely come out! I live in Pittsburgh, but I'm a Youngstown native and have lots of family and friends there, one of whom is co-owner of this gallery. It's a great venue and they're very supportive. I expect to be pretty busy though, so don't know that I'll have much time to chat. Unless, of course, you decide to sit for one of these!
