I was on vacation last week and found myself in a book store looking for a photography magazine to take to the beach and just relax with. I was amazed that there seemed to be at least two dozen magazines for a photographer to choose from. However, it was quickly apparent that some magazines like "Shutterbug" are nothing but monthly ads.

Do you have a favorite magazine? What's a good magazine for general purpose tips and ideas that isn't cover to cover with ads?

I subscribe to several photo magazines, but my favorite is Popular Photography. Great tips and reviews! The Sept. issue, for example, highlights 35 great photo gadgets under $10. A regular feature that I particularly like is called "The Fix." It takes a photo and does a critical review of the print, while explaining how to correct it. I've learned so much from this publication.

My favorite for digital gear and Photoshop tips is "What Digital Camera." It's a UK publication, but I subscribe in the US. You can find it in the usual magazine outlets if you want to check it out. The only probem I have with it is that the prices quoted in reviews are in pounds, and sometimes the UK camera model names are different than the US counterparts.

For general photography topics I like "Popular Photography" and "Outdoor Photographer."

Popular Photography. It has basically all I can ask for: reviews, tips, techniques, some post-processing stuff, etc. They also have reader's photos and as said before, "The Fix", which is quite insightful.

I live in Poland, so English magazines are a luxury for me. But yesterday, I ran across a copy of "Practical Photography" and after a quick look had to buy it. It lives up to the name, giving a ton of useful articles related to making your pics better. I'm hoping to find it on a regular basis.

Anyone from UK concur??
