    Default Photography books

    Hi,
    I very new to photography and recently got myself a dSLR camera. Can anyone advise me what is a good photography book to get to learn more about taking good pictures with dSLR? Thanks.

    There's just too many of them, google it!

    Several I've read:

    Mastering Digital SLR Photography, by David D. Busch

    Mastering Composition with Your Digital SLR, by Chris Rutter

    The Complete Guide to Light & Lighting in Digital Photography, by Freeman, Michael

    Photos with Impact by Tom Mackie

    Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color and Composition in Photography by Bryan Peterson

    These are two of the very first photography books I've ever read (and ironically the most memorable). Nothing too technical in these books but the images and text has a creative skew. If you want more on equipment then these books don't offer it, from memory.

    Highly recommended to get your creative juices flowing.

    i have the two digital photography books by scott kelby. it's a very practical book with as minimal technical jargon as possible.

    I started with all bryan peterson's:
    - understanding exposure
    - understanding digital camera
    - learning to see creatively
    - beyond portraiture

    the first 3 books are quite similar in content.
