Re: Photography book
Hi, being a newbie in this hobby, I'm wondering if any kind bro can recommend a good photography book meant for beginner but also can the same time cover topics on technical spec, technique to shoot, the combination skill to using shutter speed+aperture,etc.
Can I know the name of the book and the price, plus where to get it. Thanks.

Go to amazon.com and search for the book you want. You'll have a pleasant surprise that the prices can be lower than those in stores here. Plus some of the books actually come with a CD (which is essential, for say, practice photoshop skills), but if you buy from stores here, they don't have the bundled CD.

I'd say get a book on composition first, after you get the composition right then you can go and understand exposure
10th July 2005, 03:24 PM
Any books on composition to recommend?

There are quite a few. Not all you may agree with but many many poses can be learned concerning the human body alone.

Try 'Master Posting guide for portrait photographers'. By J.D. Wacker. Easy to read, nicely illustrated.
