Welcome to Episode Number 87 of Photofocus with Scott Bourne and special guest Kevin Kubota. Photofocus is the show devoted to your questions about anything photography related including gear, technique, locations, etc. Your questions will shape the direction of this show so be sure to send your questions to [email protected]. We will try to answer as many as we can but we get a lot of questions so we’ll try to take a collection of questions that represent a particular topic and present them together.

This week we kick things off with a question about photography magazines:

Scott: If you are a nature photographer, check out Outdoor Photographer. Scott Kelby now has a new iPad magazine called Light It which is great. In general, if you subscribe you will save yourself a ton of money. Continue reading
