    Get inspiration from online sources and have your folks buy you a sub to WIRED, Ad Busters or Communication Arts. That's where I get 90% of my inspiration. I personally find most Photography magazines to be either really uptight and subjective or all about photoshop tricks and wedding photography.

    aftercapture started ok, but the last one was just about all ads.

    Oh yeah, I have definitely seen worse. I dunno, I just don't really like most of their articles or choice of content and when I do see something interesting, it's buried and not really in depth. I honestly just grab it from the mail box and it goes right into the recycle bin. Also, I don't really keep up with the latest and greatest photographers, trends or techniques.

    Digital Photo Pro is one of the best ones out there. Actually has good info, lots of really good photogs are featured, lots of how toos on more than just photography, but also the industry and business practices.
