What are your favorite, film photography focused magazines?
I'm looking for one that will help me with my technique and has some reviews.

There is a pretty wide ranging question. What are your interests, and where do you live?

B&W magazine.
I've also picked up Camera Arts (unlikely to buy again), Lenswork, Photolife (Canadian but is now going mostly digital), and Aperture (not sure on that name?).

Black & White Photography, Outdoor Photography, Photography Monthly. These are the UK magazines that I am most familiar with; I live in the US. The only US based magazine I can recommend, given your interests and equipment is "Nature's Best."

Make that the UK version of Outdoor Photography. The USA version is a waste of paper. It should be relabled Outdoor Photoshop.

Actually the irony of that mag is that many of the photos...and all but one of the photographs in their calendar....are made with film, often large format at that. Outdoor Photographer shills for the digital manufacturers more blatantly, and with less skill since their hypocrisy is so evident, than any other mag I can think of that isn't a strictly digital oriented publication. UGGHHH,..

There was a UK magazine called 'Darkroom User' or something like that several years ago. Ctien was a guest columnist a lot. Anyone remember that mag?

Not seen the US version Aggie, but the UK one was of course what I meant :smile: It also has reviews of areas to shoot in here in the UK which can be very useful. Also true John there is a lot of digital in it :sad:

Yeah, sad. I was a charter subscriber and finally got just fed up with it a few months ago - now I refuse to buy it. FYI: not to be confused, the name is different; the US version is "Outdoor Photographer" and the UK version is "Outdoor Photography".

Their sister publication is "Photo Pro" - a digital rag - published by the same person; Rob Sheppard. In the current issue is an article about the future of the SLR, and they barely mention the Nikon F6.

Just to pile on "Outdoor Photographer" (the USA publication), it was at one time the magazine that seemed to be the best hope for serious nature photography. It had great columnists (all of whom used film) and it had some insight that stimulated readers. As columnists either died or were dropped, it turned into another gear-rag that turns my stomach. Occasionally it present some outstanding porfolios (almost universally presented by film-using photographers) but seldom does it offer any insight or challenge except to the upgrading digital weenie. The bottom line on the mag seems to be that the bigger your budget, the better your pictures will be. I was a charter subscriber to this magazine and loved it for many years. I'm now so disappointed in it I never pass a chance to dis it.

Jorge I did the magazines first interview last week, of Henry Gilpin. It is coming, but the flu seemd to hit a key member on getting some web pages made. Once he is out of bed, literally, you will see new pages on the website. The banner adds here should be done soon also. The whole project is worse than being pregnant. At least I don't have to worry about a C-section to give the magazine birth.

There are two magazines that I regularly buy: "Black and White Photography" and "Lenswork". The latter is comparatively expensive (nearly 8 quid in the UK), but I think it's superb and deserves the money. The Roger Hicks column in the ubiquitous "Amateur Photographer" I find usually quite interesting, but apart from that I don't care for AP at all.

I'd also highly recommend B & W Photography & Outdoor Photography. Forget Practical Photography & Photography Monthy. They seem to be in a battle with each other after PM stole PPs editor. They produce the same old tired stuff month after month and have become more about digital imaging and gear reviews than photography.

For photojounalism I can highly recommend ei8ht. It's a quarterly UK publication, see www.foto8.com for details.

I think I wrote a large review of magazines some time ago...
Anyway.
Magazines I am subscribed to:
- Hasselblad Forum. Small size, excellent print and amazing photographs (depending on issue's theme).
- Lensworks. Smaller size, even better print, only BW and the portfolios can be dull.

Magazines I pick from the stand:
- UK's BW Photography. Good size, good print and great articles. Good photos sometimes only though (to my opinion).
- US's BW Photography. A4 size, ok print (for its price and target audience should have been a lot better) but always some interesting portfolios.
- France's Photo. A4 size, good print, always has some good photos. Nice chicks too.
- Photo Book. Greek. Print & binding like a book, its photos are a mixed bag of everything goes, from cellphone grabs of TV screens to dull cliche stereotypes. I always buy it though as it gives an idea of what Greeks call photography.

Darkroom User was renamed Camera & Darkroom. It was published by Ed Buziak. Excellent magazine. Contributors include Les McClain, Ctein, Roger Hicks and Frances Schultz, and Ralph Lambrecht. Very good writing, and outstanding printing.

Ed's wife had MS and required a great deal of care, and Ed was her principal caregiver. She experienced a fall that left her even more incapacitated, and this in turn distracted Ed from the magazine. The publication schedule became very erratic. Eventually, he wrote to the subscribers to explain that he and his wife had chosen to relocate from Wales to France to seek the warmer weather that would be more comfortable for his wife. He hinted that publication would resume following their relocation, but that didn't happen.
