I did a couple of searches and couldn't find anything but, what are some of the most popular photography magazines out there?

Theyre catered towards styles of shooting, new and upcoming gear/reviews, editing and a slew of others. What are you most intereted in?

Thought that might have been the case, would be nice if there was one that covered it all. But What I do is Landscapes/Nature, Wildlife and Motorsports. I'd say I'm most interested in the Landscapes and Nature because I don't do it often and can really learn something in that area.

Outdoor photography is a great magazine. Check them out online for some of their articles. As for an overall magazine I subscribe to Popular Photo, good reads and reviews but above all else...

I don't know if you can get them in the US but the "Better Photography", "Better Digital" and "Better Photoshop" series out of Australia are the best that I have found. Full of good editorial with much less advertising than is common, these mags are a really good read.

I only have the "Better Photoshop" one at hand...their site is www.betterphotoshoptec​hniques.com (external link) and no doubt that site will give you access to their other magazines.


Growing old disgracefully!

Would not suggest Popular Photography magazine. It's almost like USA Today style writing that is very superficial with their "quick photo fix" which is cropping and tone curve and most of their articles really don't teach you much. I read Shutterbug at my library and used to get Outdoor Photographer magazine subscription which was good 4 years ago when I last read it.

I love reading periodicals, but for learning I think you will be better served by the internet and all the resources available online.

I should probably say that I already use the internet for learning new photography techniques. It would just be nice to have something I can look at and read in my spare time, at school or somewhere I'm not on the internet.

Digital Photo is a pretty safe bet. They don't publish as often as others do so they tend to put more quality and thoughtfulness into what they write. As was said before, Popular Photography is most valuable as toilet paper.

Here's another vote for Outdoor Photographer. You can get a really cheap subscription through various online magazine vendors.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

Photo Plus is a Canon specific magazine out of UK. Digital Camera(UK) and Digital Photographer(UK) are non Canon specific but cover tech segments and technique segments. Visit a Barnes & Noble bookstore and peruse the art section. IMO Photo Plus is a great magazine for approx a year before they start repeating articles There is a Digital Photo mag with both US and UK versions and are NOT connected in any way other than name and both have good info in them. Shutterbug(US) is a good read also. Being mobility impaired I subscribe to multiple mags but still hit Barnes & Noble frequently to buy new to the scene mags they carry. I do suggest Popular Photography as one of the mags to buy just for different viewpoints and approaches to the subject.

I have all but given up on most magazines; too much outside influence by corporate bullying.
I tend to get more from various blogs and independent reviews then I could ever get out of magazines.

+1 on Digital Photo Pro. They have some good stuff to read, and go fairly in-depth with some photographers covering a range of styles/genres.
