If you are beginner to intermediate have a look at www.photoradar.com
I think you can subscribe from there, they have quite well produced articles,
If you are looking for more advanced stuff I would look elsewhere


Prada? Are you mad?

Never send any one who wants to learn about photography to that hell hole.
ONce upon a time, it was called DCM, and things were, by and large, very good - and you could learn loads.
Then they decided to update it, as per most members request, and changed it in PhotoRadar and pissed every one off and destroyed a good site.

I wrote one e-mail asking a question and got told i clearly didn't know what i was talking about by some snotty nosed ex college kid who'd got a job because she had a degree (probably in pig farming) and that qualified her to know all about creating a web site and photography. Hell, she done a review once and was only shy of holding the camera back to front!

Please don't ever send any one there - it's just not funny. Send them to a camera club, that way they'll get the real help they need...

Personally, I've found most photography magazines to be really cheesy and uninspiring.

But when I was first starting out, the one I bought was Digital SLR.

http://www.digitalslrphoto.com/

For me, what distinguishes Digital SLR (aside from being the only one with a first-rate layout) is that both the advice and the photos are relatively high quality. A lot of magazines have good advice or techniques, but the presentation and photos are lame. Put simply, I find a lot of photo mags don't seem very artistically savvy.

Digital SLR also puts out some special edition guides that are pretty good.

I've got a subscription to Digital Photo Pro. It's pretty good, but the articles can get a little tedious. It tends to lean a little too staunch and old school for my tastes. Sure are a lot of articles about MF film shooters for a magazine called Digital Photo Pro. I just like how they'll do breakdowns of lighting setups for specific photos.

hehe ok i'll bear that in mind... Amusing post though and i got a laugh so i gave you an applaud :)
I still say they have some good articles for beginners on the basics. To be honest i havent bought a photography mag in a long time i buy mostly books or ebooks from the photographers i like these days. joe mcnally etc
