Issue 7: Shoot Your Self
What do photographers see when we shoot ourselves? In our Self-Portraiture theme, you'll find 26 photographers' takes on themselves, plus an interview with Noah Kalina on his eternal self-portraiture project, 10 tips for better mirror shots from Heather Champ of The Mirror Project, and a conversation with Michelle Howley on Self Portrait Day.
This issue also marks our embiggening to 8.5x11, so we're in a Big state of mind. So, in addition to 21 photographers' takes on bigness, we also profile Matais Ärje, creator of the Rasterbator, which lets anyone make billboard-sized blow-ups of their photos. The third theme is Hometown, sponsored by Metroblogging, where you can see 23 photographers' takes on their home towns, plus in-depth photo essays from Chicago, Mexico City, London, and NYC.
This issue includes "My Precious" — a new section with first-person product reviews of the Leica M6, the Hasselblad 500, the Hoya R72 IR filter, and the Lightsphere II. Feeling crafty? This issue will show you how to make holiday photo gifts — magnet frames, photo wristbands, and photo coasters — as well as how to make frames out of CD jewel cases!
We love Issue 7's awesome contributors...
