  • What photography book do you recommend?

    Hello,

    It has been a while since I did some reading about photography.
    Any book you recommend? Anything different when using digital cameras?

    Thanks,
    -JACK

    Any particular sorts of photography or general photo skills? FWIW, currently I'm reading John Shaw 'Landscape Photography' and John Szarkowski 'Ansel Adams at 100'.

        Keep them coming. I will have some coffee at Borders soon to browse some from you list if they have them.

        Nothing in special, just would like to improve my technique. General photo skills I would say.

        Thanks!

              This seems to be a good tech book for the kind of things we do. It seems to cheap. I would expect it to cost more.

                  I have enjoyed outdoor photographer magazine for years with good success. I would also recommend attending a class by your local CC, as they will have a series of exercises designed to force application of technique (framing, composition, detail, etc.)


                  The only photography books I have purchased are the Ansel Adams series... (thought they are more applicable to dark room technique, and I recently sold my dark room equipment)

                      To compose better digital photos.
                      Take a look at Darren, yours,and other pictures you guys post here.

                      Jack You guys

                      I have been learning from the books I got. See above. Never had the idea of the exposure as Ihave now. It makes lots of sense. Now I know why on my snow pictures, the snow is not really white...
                      The camera is working just fine.

                        Local CC?,or SC that I am thinking about?


                        Good idea on the practical class.

                          What class is the one you are recommending?
                          CC?

                            Jack,

                            It sounds like you're beyond this level but I figure I'll put the information out there. It's great for a beginner, I used it and it helped me take my first manual exposure when I got my digital rebel last march. Well, I can't really say it's good unless my pictures are good I guess you can be the judge of that

                              All helps. Just need to manage to catch-up on all my readings.
                              Thanks for the info.
