tons and tons of books out there, which would OTAP reccommend?
like those terrible "Digital photography in 2006" books?
What do you want to learn...business...technique...history...?
Technique. It's just a hobby.
camera techniques are the same regardless of digital or film
I'd honestly just use your camera and play around...but that's how I learned, I ain't too good at fancy book lernin...most of those beginner books are all bullshit anyway (things you can just learn yourself). I know of a lot of great advanced lighting + business books.
i thought so, but
and most of the stuff in my video class crosses over nicely.
yeah yeah, that and reading through my owner's manual 500 times. I have a dozen books on photojournalism, but i thought maybe there was something else. but it looks doubtful
Just go to the library/book store and look through photographers books...get inspired by their work.
go to BN they have a digital photograph section now, read through the books until you find it explained a way you like.
Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson is pretty good.
The New Manual of Photography by John Hedgecoe... great easy read... covers all the basics and is relatively up to date.
The Photography Bible by Daniel Lezano. Great for beginners.
The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby is supposed to be good.
I haven't seen this one myself, but I've picked up a couple of Adobe-related books by Kelby and I like how they're usually just organized with straight tips on every page.
