    It has books covering anything you can possibly think of about photography. Many books on specialised subjects. Alot of the titles you cannot find in other bookshops in Singapore, hence abit pricy.

    Really recommend getting HWM Mega Guide. Really worth it.

    That's a good place to start looking if you're thinking of buying.

    I second Bryan Peterson..... still reading his book on exposures.

    Bought Bryan Peterson's books on Exposure and Creative Photography yesterday at Riceball Funan.

    Friendly people there, totally helpful in a non pushy kind of way.

    20% discount on the books too.

    Well done Riceball!

    RiceBall is a good place to buy books and the people are most willing help with recommendation should you feel lost . I bought both the "Learning to See Creatively" and "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson from them.

    20% discount now? Time to go visit them again

    "Learning to See Creatively" and "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson are the 2 books I bought, couldn't remember the titles exactly.

    The 20% discount is for the first 100 customers at the new Funan stall.

    It was only opened just a few days ago and is located on level 1 beside Subway. It has a smaller collection of books compared to the one at Adelphi but the discount is well worth the visit. Just got myself another book

    With the 20% discount, the two books will amount to $71.92.

    Bryan Peterson's Understanding Exposure is a good and light (pun unintended) read, ideas are put across without being too technical.

    For buying of books, besides Riceball, maybe also PageOne at Vivo? I only had time to do a quick tour once around the shop, seems to have quite a collection also.

    You can check out Bishan Library if its nearby, it has quite a decent collection of photography books, I get most of my readings from there.

    Yes I have. The shop at Adelphi is better stocked and has a more homely atmosphere.

    Visited the Funan shop yesterday and found it pretty cramped.

    The Funan branch mainly targets those who bought their first cameras there and may want to get some reference materials. If you noticed, the digital field guides for the DSLRs are quite well stocked there

    Anyway, this is getting OT.

    Anyone can suggest good books on composition?
