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
I also have articles published in this magazine in their September, October and November editions.
Light painting has always fascinated me so this article was all about my first attempt at the technique.
This piece was all about the so called Harris effect.
My last article was about composition while out on my daily dog walks during the COVID lockdowns.
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, although I read many articles online, I do still love 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.
