Discussion in 'Beyond the Basics' started by pbwhite, Jul 14, 2004.
can anyone suggest a good photography book for a beginning photographer that doesn't know anything?
John Hedgecoe's New Book of Photography
John Hedgecoe's New Manual of Photography
I 2nd that.
I highly recommend "Photography" by Barbara London & John Upton. This book is in its 7th edition and is widely used in photography classrooms and is a required course book for students.
You could also consider these two books by Bryan F. Paterson:
1. Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color & Composition in Photography
2. Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs
I have 3 Henry Horenstein books that I highly recommend:
Black And White Photography
Beyond Basic Photography
These books could be the textbooks for the Photog 101, Photog 102, and Color Photog classes I took in college. Horenstein probably explains it better than my teachers did.
Do either of these books cover digital photography? If not can anyone recommend a good book for new digital users?
Yup. John puts out a new book about every two years to cover the new things.
Dummies Guids are fantastic books.
I recently got a decent book for £2 or about cause i bought it in america, its very good.
But yeah, dummies guids are very good.
The one slowboat recommended does.I have that one and I like it very much.
Now I have beyond basic photography from Horenstein coming too, but it hasnt arrived yet
