Large Format Internet Resources? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi All,

I just finished reading John and David Collett's book "Black & White Landscape Photography" which I enjoyed. In the back of the book there is a list of "internet resouces" listing Usenet Newsgroups, Internet Mailing Lists, and Internet Relay Channels. As I started looking at some of the newsgroups I was impressed by how bad some of them were (advertisements, off topic postings, porno).

I am wondering if you all can tell me which are the indispensible ones for large format fine art work. I love this site and know about even though the large format section there doesn't seem too active.

So, what 1)newsgruops 2)Internet mailing groups 3)Internet relay channels are the quality ones?

Thanks for all your help!

Ditto. This is the best out there.

This is the best I've found thus far, that's for sure, and I doubt that there's anything better.

There are quite a few very knowledgeable poeple who regularly participate. It can get cantankerous at times but mostly it's a very civilized group and you might subscribe through your ISP and see how you like it. Other than this group, it's the best one I've found.

This forum is by far one of the best internet forums I have ever encountered on any subject. Knowledgeable people, no attitude and not much unrelated stuff.
