I like PC PHOTO myself. It has many useful articals.

I like the (UK) magazine 'Practical Photography' a lot. It contains useful general photography articles but also focusses on digital techniques and how-to's.

Is there such a thing as a magazine that focuses mostly on photos and critiques rather than the hardware aspect?

I like looking at Digital Photo Pro. Even though the equipment they discuss is too expensive for amateurs (the last issue was a review of digital backs). I like to see what pros are using and the work they are turning out.

If you have some time this subject was discussed in a thread about a month ago. Several magazine sites were listed.

My favorite is Outdoor Photographer. I'm subscribed to Outdoor Photographer and Popular Photography. Both are very affordable.

I alos subscribe to Maxim to look at the pretty pictures.

For those in the US there's supposedly a bargain to be had on 'Outdoor Photography', for $2.99 for a year's subscription.

It was being discussed in a dpreview forum
//forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1019&message=6796777

OT: there's also a reference further in the thread to a Photoshop CS upgrade for Elements 2.0 users for $299 - now there's a stocking stuffer!

I read just about everyone there is...And there are a bunch! as a gift ...I would ask what kind of photography is your friend into? with that I may be able to make a suggestion or two:)

I agree with SoulHunter.. it's my favorite out of all the ones that I've come across. But, I've never looked at how expensive a subscription (or if that's possible) could be for us Americans.

"Shutterbug" is pretty good, and not too expensive ($17/yr.). My personal favorite is "Photolife", it's Canadian and a little more expensive.

My favorite and I have a subscription to is a UK magazine called "Total Digital Photographer." However, to get it shipped over here is pretty expensive. I believe it was $90 for the subscription for 12 issues. It can be bought at Barnes and Noble each month though if you would like to check it out (or anyone else). I have learned many things from that magazine. Every issue they have a few tutorials for PSP, Adobe Elements and Adobe Photoshop. They also have a section where they critique photos and tell people whether they should "save" or "delete" them. I like it a lot.

I'm very partial to Picture Magazine and B&W.
11/30/2003 08:02:48 PM · #16
For Canadians, there is a wonderful magazine published in Toronto called PhotoLife. It's full gloss, lots of pages, gorgeous photographs, big portion dedicated to digital photography, limited advertising, great content.
11/30/2003 08:12:35 PM · #17
I'll second that. I always buy that one when it comes out (every two months, I think). It is awesome! limited advertising and the photos are so well printed.

Try LensWork...

//www.lenswork.com

It's a magazine about photographs instead of photography.

Awesome, I think this is what I'm looking for, jm! Thank you, thank you.

Here are a few I wrote down while visiting a local news shop that carries magazines/papers from all over the world. Hopefully I got the names correct. If not I'm pretty close. If your interested next time I go I'll get more information for you.
Contact Sheet
Digi Photographer [landscapes]
Blind Spot
Lens Work
PDN
Photo
Picture
These are all very expensive and most aren't US publications. I would think they have websites but didn't have time to check them.

wow thanks for that link, i just got me a subscription to outdoor photographer. can't beat that for 2.99

I get a UK mag called Digital Photo and occasionally one called Total Digital Photographer.

Digital Photo is excellent in general as a mag, has the typical photo discussions, some hardware etc etc

But what makes it stand out to me are that each month there is about 100 mins of photoshop video tutorials. They give you the starting images and then, with humour at times, have someone do the work, discussing what they do and why etc.

They are more than worth the cost of the mag alone, I am learning heaps.

I just found PEI's site/magazine through
Short Courses (great site!) and it looks like a really great magazine. I love that they seem to focus on digital editing and not so much on hardware. Check it out.

PEI is okay - I've been a subscriber for a year, though I've decided not to bother renewing. Most of the content is available on the web, several months before or in free tutorials.

The tips pages for photoshop hints are quite good though... My main complaint is that there isn't very much to it - most editions are pretty thin.

I subscribe to Black And White and LensWork. I enjoy these more because they deal more with photographs that photography itself.
