    Hey everyone, I was just wondering something: if there is one guide to photography that every beginner MUST have, what would it be? Orrr can I just find everything I need on the web/ ie. in TPF since this place does pretty much rule.

    1. Understanding Exposure, by Bryan Peterson. I think 90% of the people here would recommend that book.

    Well I am a two week old noob myself, but I have found three very valuable to me. Some books are more specific to the type of photography you want to do, IE: Portraits, Wildlife, ect. Myself, i'm an outdoors person.

    The three I own are:
    Fundamentals of Photography by Tom Ang
    Nature Photography by Tim Fitzharris
    Digital Photography Outdoors by James Martin.

    Personally, from what i've read out of Fundamentals of Photography, i'd suggest every beginner pick that one up no matter your niche.

    Fundamentals of Photography, Tom Ang, Book - Barnes & Noble
