    Dave, if you had to choose either Silvershotz or Lenswork, which would you go for? I've just received a sampler for Lenswork, and it looks great, but Silvershotz also seems to have additional stuff that I'd be interested in (the paper flasher test for instance)

    What would you say are the relative merits (apart from cost difference for shipping!)?

    Thanks

    I disagree with others about Photo Techniques Magazine. I let my subscription expire because they are so heavily weighted towards digital and what they do have about darkroom techniques is the same old stuff that has been done over and over again. There is never anything fresh. Oh, they have some esoteric technical stuff that is enough to bore someone to death although I can't imagine anyone actually getting anything from it.... charts and graphs made by people who don't actually do photography but rather like to test theories. I just wish there was a magazine that had the guts (and the subscribers) to devote itself, without apologies, to traditional film photography. Photo Techniques tries to be everything for everyone but ends up being very little for anyone. Save your money. LensWork, contrary to a recommendation here, has virtually nothing about darkroom techniques or technique at all with the minor exception of the darkroom tours in LensWork Extended, but even those are becoming more and more about the digital work-flow and they really don't get into technique in any depth anyway. But that's not LensWork's purpose anyway. They're "above" all that technical stuff! Their real purpose, besides showcasing some very fine photography, seems to be simply to give Brooks Jensen a platform to speak from... and speak he does... endlessly... and to showcase his own work and that of his friends.

    I agree with Nige.... old editions of Camera & Darkroom were very good. You can probably find them on eBay.
