    I like Grain too. The best alternative to date in my estimation. Don't like LFC as it will just get lost on the shelf IMHO.

    trouble with LFC to me is I can't say it, I can't remember what it the letters stand for, and it reminds me of KFC (ok once a year, but no more!). I'd like it better without the acryonm ie "Light, Film & Camera".

    Can't see Grain being appropiate since most claim they don't have any!

    I voted for "Traditional Photography" but can see how that could be a bit boring and not encompase new old ways of doing things.

    just pumped a few words thru the thesaurus and navigated to..

    Visual (Visual Record)
    Visualize
    envisage
    create
    get the picture
    maker (The Maker)

    I think we need something out of left field but aren't the one to provide it!

    LFC which also stands for (Liverpool Football Club , my workmate has LFC plastered all over his cubicle) still doesn't grab me yet. I guess because maybe it should be LFCP> light - camera - film - photographer or maybe LLCFP >light - lens - camera - film - photographer. Can photography be broken down into three items such as LFC without neglecting other important aspects?

    why not just "The Journal of Analog Photography" and then a sub-title describing the contents of the issue--in regard to the categorizing of the magazine as a "special issue"
    Dang-it Jeremy, the "Journal" was just the name I was going to suggest. I've been successful in getting published in several (2-actually) "journals"; Journal of Chemistry and the Journal of Electrochemistry.

    But my favorite is "GRAIN". It sounds like "Grit", an ancient weekly on Wall Street stuff. However I voted for "Classic Photography". At any rate, it will be an up-hill battle for sure.

    Truly, dr bob.

    I voted for L,F,C, I'm just concerned that it's not going to jump visually from the stand when it's next to all the other Photographers Digests out their. but the idea is strong hopefully the graphics will draw attention.
    Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!

    interjection for an old farm girl......grain sounds like a farm magazine. Or even a magazine on beer brewing.

    If you don't mind me chucking in my ten-pence-worth...

    I think the title HAS to include the word 'photography'. If it's going to get onto the news stand, it's going to be doing battle with thousands of other titles. You have about a tenth of a second to grab your buyer's attention, and if they have to work at ascertaining what the magazine's actually about, you've lost them.

    Obviously if the magazine is going to be subscription-only, it's a different matter. Don't know if that helps or just confuses things further!
