It's always very satisfying to see your work in print. Just about one year ago I wrote a post for this blog on Garden Bird Photography Now a year later it has featured in the July issue of Digital Camera Magazine
Apparently magazine sales are sadly falling as more publishers turn to digital offerings, or quite often both a print and a digital format. However, last year a National Readership Survey found that more than half of the British adult population read a printed magazine. This despite the common experience of seeing commuters glued to their phone and tablet screens every day. I guess readers of print magazines prefer to read them in a more relaxed way rather than the daily commute. Personally I much prefer the printed format and hope that it will continue for many years to come.
Over the years I have seen my work in print in one form or another. Sometimes single images in a book, or other times a magazine article illustrated with images. Here are a few of them from the last forty plus years.
Back in those days I used to shoot a lot with black & white film which I would develop and print. My camera was a Pentax Spotmatic which I loved. I used to get their Pentax magazine and occasionally entered the competitions. This picture is of my dear old dad enjoying a rest in the deckchair in the garden.
We have entered the digital age now with this image published in Digital Photo Magazine Shot on film with a Contax G1 but edited in Photoshop.
