    Photo Magazines

    As many of you know, I have been out of the usa for a month. Well, i went to borders yesterday to get caught up on the magazine world and was very disappointed.

    Every magazine I picked up had an overwhelming amount of digital work and articles. For someone like myself, I have no interest in this type of work or information so I left the store empty handed. Even Camera Arts had a lot of digital write ups.

    I hope someday I, we, will have a magazine dedicated to the fine art of handcrafted photography.

    Sorry to rant. Just needed to get this off my chest.

    I understand what you feel David. That is why most of the photo magazines I buy now are from the UK - yes, they have digital content, but much less than the US magazines, and most importantly, they see a place for film photography among their readers, which most US magazines don't.

    Just recently, I noticed that Outdoor Photographer is sponsoring a Fuji Film contest. I thought what a bunch of hypocrites; this is the magazine that has so far refused to do a writeup on the Nikon F6, or even announce any of Fuji's new films (except Velvia 100, which they must have done just to get the contest).

    Emulsion should be getting off their first issue soon. Go to the link here on APUG

    Why would anyone care about any review published in Outdoor Photographer? When is the last time they didn't like anything they reviewed? The reviews are completely non substantive. OP has become another Peterson's Photographic.

    want a quick update: Emulsion is in the final stages of working out kinks to get things running smoothly. We are getting it laid out now, and the last of the interviews done from the winner. One winner is still outstanding, and has not responded at all. If push comes to shove we will just mention him, and show his one photo that won. I feel like I am in my 9th month of a very long and hard pregnancy. I am more than ready to give birth to this darn thing. I could not have done this alone. I have some of the greatest people willingly working for free to help get this whole thing off the ground. Robert above will be updating the website shortly. We will then be taking CC subscriptions besides the old paypal thing. I can empathize with Sean and needing sleep.

    I have updated the Emulsion website. Once Aggie gives me the OK, I will put up the contest results.

    Please PM if you have any troubles with the website. I am novice when it comes to programming with PHP (it is like being back in the stone ages compared to ASP.NET), but I will work to make everything work. Also, PM me if you have any suggestions.

    I thought OP's general practice was to push digital in all the technical articles and equipment reviews and then feature photographers who shoot film.

    Only if it is digital. They have yet to review the Nikon F6 - although it was mentioned in an article.

    That seems to be the case. Of course, if one looks, the magazine is now being run by people like Rob Sheppard (author of books on digital and ink jet printing) and George Lepp.
