    I used to get Popular Photography until I let my subscription run out. Good magazine!

    'Popular Photography' reader here. It has been around for a very long time. I am sure there are many other greats ones too. I like Pop photo because it has so many different sections that come every month. There is general articles, tips from general and pro users, usually a photo shop tutorial, monthly photo contests results, as well as many equipment tests. It was in those tests that helped me purchase my current gear.

    I would also like to hear of other magazines as well that are out there.

    For gear stuff, the web is a better resource.

    You subscribe to magazines to see good photographs. LensWork for example.

    I love magazines. I usually subscribe to at least one of the subject/hobby that I currently am into. I've been through Car Audio and Electronics, just about every 4Wheeler magazine there is, NASCAR, Hockey magazines, etc.

    My daughter recently was selling magazines for school (they teach them to be sales people more than teaching them anything else anymore) and the wife just received her confirmation for my Popular Photography. Should be coming in the mail any day now.

    i ocasionally buy some, Popular Photography, American Photo, Digital Photo Pro, Shutterbug, Outdoor Photographer, but ive also gotten some from overseas, which i have found i like better than any American magazine, Digital SLR User, Digital Photographer, etc, only problem with overseas magazines, is they take about a month to get in stores over here, and they cost around 10 bucks each.

    I obviously know that they all will have some reviews in them. I just dont want one that ALL about gear....I want one that has inpirational atricles, tips, ideas, lots of photos....that type of thing. At this point in my life I am not looking for new equipment and dont need a ton of reviews on gear that I will never get. When I need that, i will research online. :)

    I was interested in JPG Magazine....anyone get that????

I am like, "what the heck"...didnt I pay tution? Why are they teaching my kid to sell things every single month? He is in preschool!?!?!?!?!

    I was constantly buying PopPhoto and Shutterbug at the stores....So, I went ahead and subscribed (it' sooooo much cheaper that way!!). I feel Shutterbug has too much advertising, but it does have some great info at times!! PopPhoto is good all the way around!! There's a lot of quick and dirty tips as well as full-blown tutorials. I know you're not interested in the reviews, but they do seem to test independently.
