I like the ones that Ed Verosky has written mainly because they are easy reading, plenty of good advices, basic and instructional diagrams and not only talks about camera techniques but also other useful tips. Moreover, they are electronic books and not expensive.

Best wishes!

Thanks for your suggestion Gerardo.

The Portfolios of Ansel Adams, Kertesz on Kertesz, Edward Weston 100 Photographs, Techniques of Classic Color Photography by David Gibbons, and just so you don’t think I haven’t bought a book in several decades, On This Earth by Nick Brandt.

Any book written by Bryan Peterson, like “Understanding exposure”, “Understanding shutter speed” or “Learning to see creatively”- those were my bibles when I was starting out, and I learned a lot from them. I would suggest any book by Scott Kelby for post-processing (and some photo taking tips as well). I also think the books by David DuChemin- “Within the frame” and “Photographically speaking” are making their way into photography classics, they are great resources. On more photography-filled then technical tips-filled books, I recommend the series from National Geographic – “In focus”, “Wide angle” and “Through the lens”. Those will show you that the picture does not need to be technically perfect to make it onto pages of the greatest photography magazine.
