    I'm a junior in high school and I couldn't get a class this semester for digital photography. So I'm just going to go to a book store and pick up a few books. The only one I have in mind is Understanding Exposure.
    Are there any other good books out there? Maybe one on Photoshop or anything about editing pictures.

    I'm reading another exposure book and I like it. It's called Photographer's Exposure Hanbook by Jack Neubart. By the way, I would suggest buying books online through Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I paid something like $25 for Understanding Exposure at Barnes and Noble when I found it online for like $10 cheaper.

    Understanding Exposure is real good, I read it recently (based on almost every single poster's recommendation on this forum).

    I'm still looking for some more good ones myself.

    Oh cool thanks a lot adolan. I'll look into that one. And yeah i'm most likely gunna buy them from Amazon 'cause I just found one for $8.

    Oh and another question. I found a regular Understanding Exposure, and Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera (Updated Edition). I'm assuming the second one is better but are they different by much?

    Bryan Peterson (Understanding Exposure--updated edition) has a few different books. We have that one and Learning to See Creatively. I actually just dug mine out again to look at and so they wouldn't get packed (we're moving). I also have The Digital Photography Book. Scott Kelby is another good author (I really like his Photoshop books, too). So, I think anything by those 2 would be a good pick. I hope I can get a couple other books here soon.

    That would be a bad idea.
