Digital PhotoPro - Having been as subscriber of Peterson's Photographic for a number of years, I finally got weary of all the beginner articles and I am no longer renewing my subscription as I've become captivated by this new magazine. Digital Photo Pro which digs into photography with a little more depth, such as the articles about the way ink jet printers function and how digital sensors function. In one issue there was a superb article on using PhotoShop's unsharp mask. Additionally, I've enjoyed the big section covering new products in every issue. One caution is that there's a little nudity. Some people might or might not see this as objectionable (my wife fits in the former group). In addition, there is typically an article covering glamour photography or about glamour photographers in every issue. Even if this is not your thing, there's still good substance in those articles. It's beautifully published using both high quality printing and paper. Also it's nice and big. Subscribe to Digital Photo Pro
