Non photo magazines
« on: January 20, 2010, 09:26:16 PM »
I was wondering do you guys still analyze the pictures that you see in non photo specific magazine. Do you grow out of it once you've been into photography for a while or does it become second nature and you find yourself doing it without thinking?

I do look at football pictures in the press and sometimes think why did the picture editor pick that one. Also take a quick look at local county type magazines in the supermarkets to see what they have been photographing in the North West but thats about it, I also passby the photo mags now......... :legit:

Rarely consider pictures in non photo magazines. Don't always consider them in photo magazines either.
Am getting less and less magazines altogether.

I think i used them at work when on jobs where we had a 15 -30 minute turn round to fill in the time

I think I tend to look at the non-photographic more than the photographic, except for the two that I subscribe to. Wait a minute I only 'subscribe' to one now Ag. My subscrption to B+W Photography is free for a year following the picture of mine that they published in December. :tup:

You can almost bet your boots on what you will see in the photographic mags, dependant on the time of the year. Don't forget most periodicals, magazines of all types , newspapers ect. are illustrated by photographs taken by professionals, more than you can say about the images appearing in photo mags.

Take B+W for example ::)

I will sometimes look at an advert in a magazine, it could be a bar of chocolate or a box of cornflakes. I will then try to replicate the ad as closely as possible just to see if I can. this is mainly done out of boredom, I have only been retired for three weeks and the boredom is kicking in already.  :D

Not magazines as such but Travel Catalogues for an area I'm going to visit often point to some of the better photo locations. Also County magazines can give a lot of help.

It's amazing what you can find while you're waiting in a take-a-way. :tup:

Yes very much so although I tend to avoid paying too much attention to front covers as these are either heavily montaged or *photoshopped* to death it's difficult to make out what the original must have looked like. Most press photographs I also pay little attention to as most are, for obvious reasons, opportunist shots where the capture takes priority over quality. Of the images that I do view I analyse (to use your expression) composition and lighting, both trying to understand and possibly learn something from them - like the wolf jumping over a gate for example.  :tup:
