Yes... I've been getting LFI for about 20 years now. I do like the new
format. The first issue was an extreme disappointment to me because it had
a feature article by a "photographer" (in VERY BIG quotes) that I've
watched for years and who is completely talentless. The work is absolutely
dreadful. And always has been. It's beyond me how this person gets into
publications and other things. I won't say any more as I could get really
heated-up!!! This is NOT just my opinion. Look through the issue and see
who I'm talking about. It's like the nose on your face...
