    Ansel Adams 1-5. 1, 2 and 3 anyway.

    It's kind of like having a camera, love him or hate him it's common ground. Even if you only shoot digital you still need to know.

    I really liked the books of Scott Kelby. He's very honest and realistic and tells you how it is. Maybe more a book for the real beginner, but also incredibly funny!

    Oh hell no. Anything but that fraud. Try The Perfect Photograph by Andreas Feininger.
