I borrowed a couple of Popular Photography magazines from the library the other week, so don't need to take out a subscription (very expensive in Japan). One section was about taking photographs of smashing light bulbs. There are also some great Japanese photo magas (thick ones) with really nice photos in them.

Our local library (which is overall very outdated) happens to subscribe to Photo Life so I've been picking those up.

Crap, that reminds me...the last couple shoulda been returned last week.

I only subscribe to one magazine so far, and it's Popular Photography. I like it because it is cheap, easy to read, and has great tips written in language easy for beginners like me to understand. :o)

I find many magazines have far too much equipment tests and postprocessing tricks and not enough about photography.

I often read Popular Photography, which has a nice mix or articles, including digital photography.

Last month I picked up Photography Monthly and I was impressed. It had twice the number of pages on photography and postprocessing compared to Popular Photography, and about the same mix of articles about equipment etc. I am going to buy a second copy and if that is as good as the first one I am going to take a subscription.

I'm not paying for any magazines, but somewhere along the way I acquired free subscriptions to Outdoor Photographer and Broadcast Engineering.

I don't subscribe to any photography mags, but some of the mags I subscribe to have examples of outstanding photography. Oddly enough, I've noticed that "Sport Compact Car" has really raised the bar on automotive photography. They do some really smart motion shots and their static shots show quite nice attention to lighting and exposure. And, of course, "National Geographic".

I bought Photography Monthly twice this summer, and was also impressed. They also have a website with sample articles: Photography Monthly

currently...... pc world; sterophile; sound & vision; psm; wired (free with a sub to nerve.com);U&lc (online at this point) - computers have demolished my subscriptions to magazines.

I went downtown to Calgary's big magazine shop where they bring in stuff from around the world, and out of an entire wall regarding photography, I didn't find a single one that I liked.

same old same old....good, but not inspiring.

So I left empty handed. Thoroughly disappointed with the Janet Jackson 'American Photo' covers gimick as well.

I'm trying a subscription to Outdoor Photographer this year. A lot of their articles are kind of dull but every once in awhile they have a really good article that I find useful. I also like going through the ads for the photography trips and planning for the day I can afford to go on some of them!

A friend of mine gives me her National Geographics after she reads them. They are always good for a few inspiring pictures.

Just started receiving Outdoor Photographer.

I buy Digital Camera World at Border's every month. I pick up Digital Photography Made Easy & Better Digital Photography about every other month. Digtal Photography Techniques occasionally. I also go to DC Mag , they post new articles on techniques, & how to's weekly. I'd subscribe but, it is an UK magazine, not much savings by subscribing.

If you work for a business which has anything to do with graphics, printing, or photography, you may qualify for a free subscription at FreeBizMag.com -- I think that's where I got Outdoor Photographer.

I don't seem to have time to read magazines so I don't subscribe to any. I have bought the British magazine Practical Photography a few times though and really like it. It seemed to have more "meat" to it on technique and skill -- less of the advertising or equipment-pushing stuff, which I'm not very interested in.
