I've been out of apug and out of photos for quite a long time, well that's the way life goes.
I'd been very interested in having a close look to someone else prints, but don't like the atmosphere of photoclubs where people spend a lot of time talking of camera and lenses. I think the "gear lust" period is over for me, what really counts is the image itself.
I know I still have a lot to learn, yet I'd be interested in joining a print exchange group. Have I come to the right place? Do you accept beginners?
Yes you have come to the right place. The print exchanges are great. You may also be interested in the group exchange where you will get feedback from the other participants.
