5 Best Photography Magazines

Are you passionate about photography? And no, I’m not talking about those who are only interested in taking selfies. I’m talking about those who love their cameras so much, that most of them won’t fit in their back pocket; and where lighting means more than just a flash and/or what filter to choose.

I still remember using my 35mm lens, developing my own film, and making prints. Nowadays most of my pictures reside on my cell phone; and while I’m able to capture moments at a moment’s notice, the quality of the image isn’t nearly as great, and my phone’s storage space starts to shrink faster than I’d like.  Unfortunately film is now becoming something a bit more of the past, and digital cameras/camera phones are on the rise.

However for those of you who do still like to hold a 35 mm lens in their hand, and enjoy using natural light, or perhaps you even just like to admire the artwork, you will not want to miss out on these top 5 amazing photography magazines!
