Used to get Practical Photography regularly but recently they've just been recycling features - every few issues you'll get a landscape special, a B&W special, travel special etc etc. It's still a good read for beginners like myself I suppose, but I just browse rather than buy nowadays.

What I hate is the price fixing of the magazines. Pract Photo for example is listed at about 3.50 pounds sterling, which is about Sing$10. But newstands sell for about $17, because that is what it would cost you to subscribe from the publishers themselves. I still prefer to buy from big shops like kino and borders, where you're free to browse freely without unfriendly stares and prices are sometimes cheaper too.

Get Prac Photography from Basheer at Bras Brasah Complex 4th floor, they are selling it at $11.00 for each copy. I also get my American Photo there for $10 instead of $14 at most places. Think Photography Monthly going for $14.

Guys,

Try subcribing online to Popular Photography and American Photo on their own website. It's dirt cheap. USD$12 thereabouts for 1 year sub.

Same here, Japanese magazines usually have very simple themes for their fashion shoots but they are very well executed. One of my favourite is Phat Photo. It's a whole magazine on how to take portraits of women in those pictorial styles. Have to give them credit for some really cool techniques and other related information.

What is your interest and objective in reading photo magazines?

Basically, I buy Lenswork and Black & White magazine. And occassionally American Photo. Photography monthly if there are articles that interest me
