No pictures today (again!)
Instead I thought I’d mention this magazine (again!) and say that my first copy as a subscriber arrived last night. I’ve been buying this for the last few months and some of the articles are brilliant.
While hunting for my chosen toy and debating the whole passage of time, I bought a few different magazines. My responses to them ranged from “I wanna spend how much???” to “I just spent £4 on a book of adverts!”. A lot of magazines seemed obsessed with selling me thousand pound lenses and cameras rather than telling me what was in my price range. Little things in Digital SLR Photography like how to make your own reflectors and how to improvise filter mounts make it so much more accessible to people on a budget.
It was their review of the D40X against the 400D helped push me into Canon’s laps (mmmmm comfy), and it was their features of David Nightingale (Chromasia) and other fantastic photographers which makes me want to take better shots.
For those trying to learn the art, the fact the provide the exposure settings for a majority of their shots is superb (and it’s why I do it to).
My one complaint is that their website doesn’t live up to the quality of the magazine.
If you’re looking for a magazine on Digital SLR Photography you can’t beat this. It does exactly what it says on the tin…erm cover.
