Can anyone recommend some good books for me to get my teeth into please?
Im after books that talk about technique, the science behind photography and books that talk about specific types of photos. I appreciate this wealth of information wont be in one neat little volulme, and am hoping to have many hours of good reading ahead of me.
So, any suggestions?
We're actually doing a round-up of photography books for the December issue of What Digital Camera - on sale October 28th
Excellent, I look forward to it.
In the absence of any suggestions I am reading Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. So far I have found it to be extremely useful.
nice to know your getting used to your new DSLR you cant bet in my eyes taken it out of auto and diving in to manual mode i shot about 90% of my photos in manual mode. But as for reading books on how to do things i like to watch and learn before i brought my DSLR i found most of the things i learned on youtube and what other people had up loaded to video streaming sites i all ways say to any one in this world that we live in Google Search is your number 1 friend for information
all the best Russ
I love it! Excellent recommendation, thank you Graham

Its a steep learning curve, but I'm relishing the challenge.
