    Can anyone recommend a book that walks you through the settings of any specific shot,,, maybe your looking to blur an object in the background,,, or taking a pic of water,, ie., running stream, or sunset,,,,
    So for any specific shot you are trying to capture the book would give you a good starting point,, as an example,,, start in TV mode,,, use such and such setting, etc, etc,,,

    Hope I made this clear enough,,,,,

    thanks

    Go to search on the top of the page. Type in Books, make sure you have Threads selected.

    You will see this page pop up. The Photo Forum - Photography Discussion Forum - Search Results


    In each one of those threads, there are all kinds of suggestions from books to tutorials.
    Good luck, happy reading and get back to us in about 6 months after reading all of it. :mrgreen:

    The type of book you are looking for (taking you through different types of shots) sounds like the Scott Kelby books:

    No, because there are no books that can tell you what settings to use for a specific shot. There are however some good books already mentioned by others in this and other threads that will teach you the relationship of Shutter speed, Aperture, and ISO. Once you understand those you will understand what settings to use to get the effect you want.
