I would like to show my support for such a venture.

As for worrying about the quality of a PDF, there is no reason why one can't easily be made ready for home viewing and / or home printing. I have personally used a few PDF files for making into printed books for various groups that I belong to and the final books have been excellent.

As for ideas of what I would like to see in the magazine / PDF, may I initially suggest what used to be done in 'Black and White Photography' magazine? The 'negative swap' - where the taker and another person printing up the same negative with the end result being shown along with an explanation of the working method leading up to the end print. I note that it used to be done on this site, but not for a while and not with many participants. Are any other people still interested in resurrecting this at all?

Just to keep everyone in the loop, I spoke to the organiser of the Analogue Group in the Royal Photographic Society and they are VERY interested. I have been asked to forward on the reply I received from the editor of the German Magazine for their forum.

Now, as a well respected body, they do have clout and who knows, it may lead somewhere.

I have the same concerns as those Mike posted earlier. In addition, if you're going to settle for a "magazine" that's a downloadable digital thing only, then how is that any advance on what we already get from this forum and others like it, plus the online magazines that already exist?

Default Hmmmmm!

To put it bluntly at the moment, I simply don't know, but if we don't try to organise something then we won't get anything. I may be wasting my time, but I feel strongly enough about the lack of a paper journal which is principally for our type of photography of some sort, or another I think that anything is better than nothing - for the time being. This is not costing you, me or anyone else anything except my time.

Irrespective of the German publication being PDF, If it is in English, it gives us another insight and ideas

Negative views never got anywhere

There's no need to be quite as offensive as that.

Michael, not wanting to make a mountain out of a mole hill but I didn't read John King's last post with any offense in it at all...?

Sometimes the thing with forums of any kind (and emails in general) is that the written word does not always come across with the feeling that the writer wanted it to and therefore some things are read into them that's not actually there in the first place.

I hope this makes sense and without being offensive at all, I think that we all need to lighten up a bit sometimes and not look too deep into comments, for I too have been accused of of saying something that I had no intention of implying on here before, so I know how these things can get out of hand very quickly.

End of sermon and wishing everyone a good day.
