    To share information about the avocation we enjoy...large format photography.

    And to debate depth of field.

    "Why are we here?"
    A question from the dawn of human consciousness, still being asked.
    There are almost as many answers as questioners.

    I'm a member of this forum because I've been making photographs with large-format cameras, professionally and personally, for over forty years.
    I enjoy seeing other photographer's work and reading their stories, opinions, and advice. I still learn useful and enjoyable things from you all.
    And by now, sometimes I can offer help to other members.
    In short, I like it here.

    Let us never stop learning. There is much to learn here, and it is for most part focussed on what its title implies, large format, with appropriate allowances for those of us who stray into smaller formats. (That's just a joke, folks; just a joke.) And let us look forward to more new photographers discovering the best of what this forum offers and enrich it with their enthusiasm and ideas. It's a good place, thanks to members and moderators alike, to share our passion, our knowledge, and our questions.

    Not to be forgotten, we're also here due to the generosity of its creator.

    These days I'm here mainly to be helpful. That's why "the list.'"

    We're here because we all have a common interest, and we like to learn, share, surprise, boast, ....and of course, argue.

    If you want to get really philosophical....
    Are we really here?
    ...and where is this "here" of which we speak?
