Hi just want to know which photography magazines you all read? And which titles you would recommend? For me, I buy some titles and borrow some from the library. The following are the titles I read. They are placed from my most favourite to least favourite.

1. Practical Photography
2. Popular Photography and Imaging
3. Photovideoi
4. Digital Photography User
5. Petersen Photography

(1) and (3) I buy on a regular basis.. Practical Photography has very gd tips and information each month on how to take better pictures on the different subjects of photography. This magazine is packed full of photography goodness and most importantly it doesnt have alot of pages of advertisments unlike some magazines. I buy Photovideoi coz its a local magazine(support local photography mag) and its the cheapest photography magazine I can find on the market now.. The only gripe I have is that I wish it can have more pages dedicated to taking better photos of different topics.. But nevermind it is already good enough for the price.. My 2nd fav is Popular Photography, I find the reviews of cameras and lens in the magazine very comprehensive and accurate, the reason why i never buy it is because its quite ex, ard $17.90 if I am not wrong. But nonetheless its a gd read and I always look for it 1st in the library..:)

I buy Practical Photography monthly. Picked up the habit of buying it when I was in the UK... Photography Monthly is also not bad after they kapo'd Practical Photography's editor 1-2 years back.


However, I find that all the magazines always keep repeating the same sort of theme every year... in a given year, confirm will have one B&W issue, one macro issue, one night shooting issue, etc; which sorts of diminish the enjoyment a bit over time.

Ya but Practical Photography and Popular Photography both very hot at NLB. Very hard to get, and even if can find, is those very back issues.. Peterson always have alot of stocks though.. Think not much ppl read coz alot of pages dedicated to advertisements..

I am thinking of subscribing to Photovideoi too, coz in the long run save quite alot.. The editor John Cosgrove came to my company last month, had a talk with him(asked him where to get camera bags), before he went off, he even showed me the draft copy of the April issue(the one on still life which is out now) ;)

The usual price for Practical Photography is $13.50... most places sell it at that price, including those chain book stores like Times, MPH, Kino etc. I've never seen a $14.90 copy, not even at MPH in Raffles City.

Anyway $12 is cheap...
