New Newsletter - The 37th Frame by Mike Johnston : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I just noticed that Mike Johnston is publishing a new newsletter called The 37th Frame and wondered if anyone has had a chance to read a copy yet. More info at:

Many of you are probably familiar with Mike from his days as editor at Photo Techniques USA and Camera & Darkroom. Mike was also an active participant on the Compuserve Large Format Photo Forum in days gone by. I always felt that Mike did a commendable job when he was the editor of Photo Techniques USA. So, although his new newletter isn't large format specific (neither was Camera & Darkroom nor is/was Photo Techniques USA - as a large format photographer I found/find both worthwhile reading), I'm interested to hear if any of you have subscribed and what you think of it. In the past, even when working for commercial publications, Mike wasn't shy about expressing his opinions. Given the total lack of advertising support (and influence) his new publication sounds like it has great potential. So, anybody seen a copy yet? What did you think?

That was the name of his column in one of the magazines he used to work for. I'll buy a subscription, just to see what he has to say, but I fear it will be one of those projects that will die after a few years. Small press publishing is a labor of love, but it's also a lot of hard work. He really should get set up to accept subscriptions over the net.

There's a sample of Mike's recent writing on the luminous-landscape website:
