Steve, a mix of both would be nice but maybe a supplement after a portfolio or article would be more practical.
I'm sorry to hear about PhotoVision going under too, I guess that's why I've been missing the last issue. I guess that's the chance you take when subscribing to anything new. I figure with the free issue that Steve A. sent out before he left, I only got burned for 3 issues.
As far as other magazines go, I have only good things to say about B&W Photography, VC and LensWorks, all are excellent publications. If it wasn't for the exchange rate I would certainly buy more of B&W magazine but the Cdn. dollar just isn't what it once was.
