Analog Photography Magazine?
As a relatively new film photographer, I have so much to learn. Is there a magazine which focusses on film? Nothing I see on my news stand covers Azo, Cibachrome, various developers etc etc etc
Instead I feel like I keep spamming the forums with questions! (LIKE THIS ONE!!!)
Photo Techniques and some others have articles on analog photograhpy, but are all afflicted with "digital creep."
Lens Work and Camera Arts/View Camera have less emphasis on technique and more on the artistic side of photography, though both are weighted more toward analog.
That's about it, malheuresment, as the French say.
Emulsion... See sponsors links. Looking forward to the first issue.
B&W photographer in the UK is a great magazine.
There is digital stuff, but the bulk of the magazine is traditional photography.
AP in the UK covers the whole photo market, it's sort of 50/50 film/digital, which is great.
B & W
Gareth is right, Black and White Photographer is a good magazine. A few digital articles, althought for the most part film and darkrooms are featured.
There is even a monthly feature on readers home darkrooms which is interesting, to me, anyway.
You can find this magazine at the larger chain stores.
Lenswork is also a great magazine, although more emphasis on the creative process, much less on technique and nuts and bolts.
View Camera magazine is good also.

Not many magazines cater to film photographers anymore. The afore mentioned ones are good. Your best bet is to head to a public library and check out some old books on photography. There is a wealth of into in there.

"Not many magazines cater to film photographers anymore."
Not any, in the context of the OP's, snaggs, inquiry.
"Your best bet is to head to a public library and check out
some old books on photography."
Old books are full of old information; film and chemistry
no longer available, techniques which have become
antiquated or have now alternatives.
THOUGH, for an over all picture, some old book reading I
think a good idea, as long as it is not thought of in specific
as the holy grail. After all, I use GRADED FIBER BASE PAPER
in a BRIGHT, YELLOW-ORANGE lit darkroom.
Then again, I process prints single tray, one-shot, using
neutral to alkaline chemistry. Where but here would
one read of that or, or, or, ... . Dan
Yes there is a magazine dedicated wholly to analogue photography and the different techniques you mentioned. It is called : apug !

Thanks all, I was thinking of View Camera. I've seen B&W Photographer, but it seems more foccussed on the art/gallery side, with features on peoples photos, rather than techniques etc.
Ill check out Emulsion!
You've probably seen B&W, rather than Black and White Photography. The latter is a UK mag. Emulsion isn't out yet.
