WEBWIRE – Wednesday, January 09, 2013 - Good Light! Magazine, a new iPad based publication about portrait photography for amateurs, has just published its third issue in Apple’s Newsstand. The Good Light! Magazine app served exactly 10012 users according to MagCast on Tuesday, January 8th, 2013.
Featuring a high-resolution display, the iPad is the tablet of choice for many amateur and pro photographers. Apparently this device is not only used to showcase own photographs and to take advantage of photography related apps like Instagram and Snapseed, but it is also a tool for convenient consumption of content.
Tablet based magazines allow readers to zoom in on featured photographs, watch videos right inside the magazines and download useful files right from within the magazine.
While magazines have always been a major source of information and inspiration to photographers of all levels, the new features of tablet based magazines make this new type of publication even more attractive.
Good Light! Magazine is an example for a new addition to the photographer centered publishing scene, which makes use of all the advantages electronic publication has to offer. It is integrated with social media and it is interactive up to a point, at which readers can provide feedback and express interest in future topics right inside the magazine.
Thanks to this web-centric reader focus, the magazine was able to attract more than 10.000 readers who installed the Good Light! app on their iPads. This milestone was achieved with just 3 published issues and without any form of conventional advertising.
"We are blessed with a vibrant community of photographers who interact with us on social media. The success of Good Light! Magazine is based entirely on word-of-mouth by this group" explains Sebastian Stelter, social media manager and editor of Good Light! Magazine.
