    Last issue of Photo Techniques

    I got my issue of Photo Techniques yesterday and it included the announcement that it's the last issue. Subscribers will receive Digital Photo Pro for the rest of their terms. Glad I didn't renew for longer. :-(

    Not a word about it I could find on here, either. Of course all print media is suffering with the Internet, but I'll miss it. It was a shadow of its former self but still had a good issue from time to time. In the heyday of Darkroom Techniques and Darkroom and Creative Camera Techniques it was a positively superb magazine and resource.

    Farewell DT, C&D, CC&DT, and PT.

    Say it isn't so. I have let all of my other photo mag. subs. go as they were all digital (and mostly digital gear review). This was the only mag. that gave decent analog info any more. This is really bad.

    They even have an article in the current issue "Handcrafting Light-Sensitive Photographic Paper"

    PS I have most of the old issues saved going back to about 1980.

    I remember a magazine which I bought at 1985. It was thin and may be British. I remember it as Photo Techique not Techniques but 30 years ago , may be I am wrong. Is that the same magazine ?

    Yep, you have the current issue. Go to the front and read "From the Editor" and the blurb on the opposite page.

    Be careful. Announcing anything as discontinued here is considered rumor. Trust me I know.

    Wow, and I was thinking of re-subscribing because they were carrying more analog-based articles I was interested in. If anyone has the last several issues and wants to sell them to me, I might be interested, though.

    This is devastating news. I thought I could always rely on Photo Techniques to inspire me and supply me with ideas, and I was always impressed with the quality of its format and production. If anyone has suggestions for a print-based alternative that will allow me to keep paying my mortgage, I'd like to hear from you. I still subscribe to Pop Photo, just to make sure I'm not missing the most recent developments in the industry but it is hardly satisfying.

    Thats bad news, though I haven't read it in years. My money is just too scarce to spend on magazines that are primarily digital, which is why I stopped subscribing to View Camera many years ago. It sucks that I miss some analog articles, but I can't afford to pay a subscription for a magazine if I'm only getting an article.
