      Very helpful and affordable magazine!

      This magazine is the perfect balance for amateur photographers and those a little more experienced. It costs £3.99 for 164 pages which I think is a good price for what you get. The pages are glossy and the whole magazine feels light. The magazine has a wide variety of content that changes monthly, but still keeping the same general layout. There's a whole section there to offer advice to readers, interviews with pro photographers and the very helpful photo DIY section which really gives you some brilliant ideas for your pictures. There is also a readers showcase where the magazine shows pictures that people have sent in which is very interesting as they explain their ideas behind their images.

      There are quite a few adverts in it, but with the amount of good content you get in the magazine, this kind of balances out. Overall this is definitely a worthwhile magazine for photographers, especially if your somewhere in the middle of a beginner and pro. At the moment they have got a deal on where you can subscribe for 5 issues for just £5, I was thinking about doing this myself as each month the magazine never fails to disappoint and always has something interesting to read about, or helpful tips to try at home. Everything I want from a photography magazine.

      Will I subscribe? Probably not at full price, but if they have an offer on, I will

      Having just got back into my photography, I seem to be going crazy and buying every magazine on the subject. I had to draw the line somewhere though, as it was costing me a fortune. Then I saw this offer on The Magazine Group website, three issues for £1, so gave it a go.

      My first issue arrived within a few days and I was pleasantly surprised. I won't say it has captured my imagination as much as Photography Monthly, but it is pretty good.

      The May 2009 issue of Digital SLR Photography runs to 164 pages. It has some stunning photos in it and my favorite article of this issue is about Andrew Zuckerman and how he got all these really wonderful wild animals into his studio to photograph... the results are stunning and made me want to buy his book for a more in-depth look.

      Back to the magazine, it has some great Reader's Photos, along with critique pages. The Photo DIY section is particularly good, showing how to tackle certain types of photo. The Reviews section is a bit lacking, with other magazines giving more variety. However, this issue did have a good review of studio lights, showing how the same photo looked with different budget lighting kits, that was very useful.

      Will I subscribe? Probably not at full price, but if they have an offer on, I will.
