    "Dissing" Lenswork...

    Has anyone read David Vestal's critique of Lenswork in the current issue of PhotoTechniques? He doesn't actually name the magazine, but describes it quite specifically nonetheless. I usually enjoy Vestal's column grounded as it is in about a zillion years of experience in the profession as a photographer and as a teacher at a major NYC art school. I often agree wholeheartedly with him, but in this case, I have to spend some time absorbing what he finds objectionable (waaaay too precious renderings of 'graphs that may well be more course than the magazine presents..I think!). I like Lenswork. It'll be interesting to personally critique it with reference to another's perspective.

    Who has time to read mags at home....therefore I subscribe to none. At Borders, once in a while over coffee, i'll check out Lenswork and/or view camera mag. Oh...UK's b&w is pretty good also...but they keep spelling things wrong.

    I owe Aggie an apology. She contacted me to rectify the situation, which made me look for which issue I had received. Turns out volume one of Emulsion was filed away and I never even read it. So, Aggie, I am sorry for the confusion and unintentional slight.

    Curently I subscribe to B&WP UK and no others.

    I used to subscribe to Amateur Photography, until the price went up. I then measured the amount of time I spent actually reading an issue and binned the subscription.

    Practical Photography also used to be on my subscription list despite the increasing amount of digital content. Then a couple of years ago they did a Black and White special without any traditional photography in it (except a token "what film for what purpose" which was of very debatable merit) closely followed by an issue containing the phrase, "lost hours in smelly darkrooms".

    I concluded that I shouldn't pay to be pissed off when there were so many people in the world prepared to piss me off for free...

    Ailsa's mag is a cut above the rest IMO. As long as the digital content doesn't grow and Mike Crawford doesn't put in too many howlers (eg. "MGWT FB gives no tonal shift in Gold Toner"?!!! (paraphrase) :o :rolleyes: ) then I think I'll be subscribing for a long time to come.
    The destination is important, but so is the journey

    I really like Emulsion so far. I also subscribe to Black & White Photography (UK).
    I have stopped buying or even browsing through other magazines in the newsstands.

    Art,

    Is there something about Emulsion we should know about?

    It is about time for Issue #3.

    That's it really. I tend to buy photography books from secondhand shops instead of magazines - usually for the same price. e.g. this weekend I bought Linda McCartney's 1960's book for £2.99 which is about the same as you would pay for a monthly magazine here.

    Steve,

    I'm with you on this. I recently bought Annie Leibovitz's "1996 Olympics" book at a usedbooks store for about the same price (i.e. USD 5.00)!
