been doing some reading on some newer threads in the newbie section, found that i'm still very blur with all the photography terms...meterings, DOFs, white balance, shutter/lens speed and etc etc etc.

so i thought of getting a book on learning the basics of photography but i don't know how and i need help. I need a book which not only teach you how to shoot but also explain why to.

if anyone knows where to get the books please reply thru this thread stating where to get it and roughly how much.

thanks for all the help i would be getting :)

There are many excellent books that can fit your requirements.

I suggest taking a trip to "Riceball" book store in Adelphi (level 4). Zhong Ling, the owner will be most helpful to get you a suitable book. His prices are also very competitive!

If you really want to know on metering, DOF, aperture, exposure etc... look for the book @ Riceball's shop - Understanding Exposure, should guide you through the basics & understanding of the camera's use.

Hey folks!
I just finished reading a book by Henri Cartier Bresson (HCB), but the book's content doesn't really cover the technicalities of photography. It covers more about how HCB chooses his subjects, his perception about photography, framing, composition and so on.

I find the book very inspiring for me to even create better photographs, and that expensive equipment may not be your solution for good photographs.

It is a very thin book, around 106 pages, and although I bought the book at Kinokuniya, I dunno whether if there are copies on the shelf yet.

So those interested, here are the following details -

Title: The Mind's Eye - Writings on Photography and Photographers
Author: Henri Cartier Bresson
ISBN: 0-89381-875-5
Price: S$39.38

Cheers,
-Michelle- :D

Or you've got your free web resources, I hate paying for stuff myself.

At the top of the very forum we're in there's this thread: http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=37569

Also, now this one is canon specific, but you really can read it with any brand in mind : http://www.camera.canon.com.my/archive/photography/art.htm

I'm sure there are tons more tutorials out there, the Art of Photography is my go to with any questions.
