    I agree Ailsa, that you need to capture the attention right away. You could also substitue camera instead of photography. It convyes the same meaning.

    I went for "Traditional Photography" 'cos:

    • As Ailsa says, it instantly denotes a photography magazine
      It separates it from digital, emphasising the positive rather than the negative (no pun intended!).
      It encompasses ALL traditional photography, from E6 slide through silver printing to alternative processes and beyond
      It sounds good

    There's probably a few other reasons too. Add "The APUG Quarterly" and the tagline "We like it wet!" and I think you've got it covered...

    BUT you can't please all the people all the time and whilst I'm glad that Aggie is taking the time and trouble to canvas our views any attempt to run the magazine as an APUG-wide democracy just isn't going to work. My thought: Get the suggestions, pick one, move on.

    Aggie, you have given yourself a huge task. Thank you very much for taking it on 'cos I think it will be a really great achievement when it comes off, but please don't make it any harder for yourself!

    Whatever name gets picked you can count on my subscription and my support.

    All the best,

    Frank

    I'd like to suggest a name that is more descriptive and inclusive of the darkroom aspects of this group. I'm still thinking of what that might be....hmmm.

    Photography/Printing News

    Analog Photography/Printing Monthly

    APUG Journal

    Come to think of it, why not use this groups name? APUG. It's a bit unusuall, but it sticks.

    I agree with Ailsa. There needs to be the word "photography" in there. If not in the title, then in a sub-title. LFC sounds too techie. Don't know what you plan on this magazine being, but in my opinion it should be primarily about photographs and only secondarily about the techincal things that go into making them.

    "Photography with Film" is really the idea you need to get across. Light, film, camera, could apply to digital except for the film. That's only one out of three.

    "Film-based Photography" is the idea, but it does not sound at all interesting.

    I don't think the name matters as much as the sub title--something like:
    "A monthy magazine dedicated to film-based photography."

    I am with you Michael, LFC is stupid. Plain old stupid. Still sounds like KFC. There has to be more that this to name this thing. Maybe it is not a good idea at all for this to be chosen by committee. Maybe the editor needs to step up and say, "This is what we call it". Done period. If this is how it will be run then we need to forget it as it will never get to press. Simple. This is a business. Run it as such. Right now it is a fantasy. Sorry for the harsh words but that is how I see it.

    Photo Alchemy is better than lfc, but I am used to seeing 'Alchemy' as part of jazz band names. I see a site called photo-alchemy so not sure if there are any copyright issues there..

    No searched no conflict of name. Also using michaels suggestion with a twist you could add under it.....The magic of film based photography.

    But this is my last word on it. Sean please lock this thread. Per Steve, Sean and I will hass it out. No sense letting a group decide. If it was left to this, NO name would ever be good enough or of appeal to everyone. Fantasy or no.
