    Hi all,

    I know there are a lot of members here in the New England area - do you know any good photography workshops in/around Boston? I've searched for some using Google, and the ones I saw were a bit pricey ($300++). Granted, it looks comprehensive enough and the few reviews I've seen are stellar, but I don't want to add anymore to the burdens caused by GAS. :biggrin: Is this the normal going rate, or what would you say would be a reasonable price for a good one?

    OR ... maybe better, (paging Amin and other admins :wink:) any plans for a meetup-cum-workshop (even an informal one) for :43: members starting with those here in the Boston area? I've learned a lot from reading in this and other forums, but I think there's still something good to be had when another (or better yet, a pro) critiques your work in person. Spring is coming when it's good to be out and about!!

    I'd like to do a meet up in NY for a weekend.
    I do my street meets here in Philly off and on but there's more members with NY at the center point.

    Boston Area meetup...

    Hi Don, Hyubie et al.

    So, based on your comment Don, it would be okay for say, Hyubie and or myself to attempt the organization of a Boston area meet-up via the board?

    I think it's a great idea, and would be willing to help hyubie, or whomever, try to get it started.

    I've belonged to several groups and clubs that have informal meetings, breakfast gatherings etc. I don't imagine it would be too difficult to get some Mu-43 users in the Southern New England area together for a meet, photo quest etc.

    I'm all for it, and will do what I can to help.

    Those that have been to some of these workshops, did you learn something worth the tuition?

    Workshops sound like a pretty good idea. I *heart* NYC and I've never been to Boston :biggrin:

    This is a great idea. I would join in, if in nyc or boston; although nyc would be better.

    I think it would be a good idea to have a Mu 4/3 photo walk in NYC late spring early summer. It would be fun to have a meet and greet!

    NY sounds good. Let's not limit it to m4/3 tho'.
    Come as you are and with what turns you on.
