Site featuring famous photographers

Postby Didereaux » Fri May 19, 2017 9:43 pm

This site although not all encompassing certainly has a large number of the iconic photographers of the last 100 years...sort of a Wiki of photographers. Plus if other sites detailing these photographers exist the links are given. A site well worth bookmarking, and browsing on a regular basis. Perhaps this site could be the starting source of the much discussed forum on here featuring discussion of master photographers?

Excellent link, thanks for that.

It would be great to invent such a discussion here. When we started our monthly thread on our other forum, we found very little in regular forums that did such as that. We had to adjust our expectations somewhat to typical forum type response (brief, subjective) and we had to accept that many people will not read a single piece of the reference material, but such is the life of the internet forum. We have tried to make it both accessible and flexible enough to accommodate a variety of users.

Wouldn't it be cool to actually ATTRACT the kind of people who enjoy those sorts of considerations and discussions???

The nice thing about having that kind of content is that it appeals to the Id. The bad thing about that kind of content is that it requires work to research and write about those topics. Not something the Id wants to do... :thumbdown:
