    What area of photography to want to improve in? What do you feel you are weak in?

    Off the top of my head...
    'Understanding Exposure' and/or 'The Joy of Photography'.

    Thanks,
    I think that finding the right exposure is the most important thing to improve, but probably other aspects such as composition.

    I don't know where you are, so I can't be specific, But if you regularly look at a good monthly magazine and actually follow up on all the projects that they publish, you will gain a lot of knowledge and experience ... Not to mention enjoyment at doing them.

    I suggest going to your local library. The basics...like exposure, composition, lighting etc...has not changed with the advent of digital. You can find a lot of really good info in some older books.

    I agree with Big Mike. Right now I have 9 books ranging from, macro to outdoor photography. You can keep these for 6 weeks if you renew 2 times.
    By the end of the first 2 weeks though you can decide If you would want to own one, then just go to Amazon.com and order.
    Lots of good ones out there.

    I had to buy 'photography' (ISBN: 0131896091) and I have found that it is a very good all around book. Doesnt go in depth on a lot, but it covers almost everything. Also, it was very easy for me to understand being a complete beginner. It is actually one of the only txtbooks I have ever kept.
