Strobist has a list of books they recommend... I flipped through "Light Science and Magic" on Amazon and looked at "Skin" at a Borders. I also found a handful of other books on portrait lighting mixed in with the 300 other "KOMPLETE DIJITAL FOTO GUIDEBOOK!" at Barnes and Noble. I'm basically looking for books that will help me practice and guide me along in my exciting journey into off camera lighting as well as being able to tell people how to pose, where to put what, etc, etc. Also, my 135 f2 finally gets here tomorrow (damn you Saturday for not being a shipping day). Edit: And not to say that I wasn't impressed with either book, but perhaps there's something better out there. That's why I'm making the thread.
