I have been doing photography for a few years now, but have only just now started getting into the freelance scene and doing some actual jobs and getting very serious about it.

What books would you guys recommend me to read to really get the most out of what I already have? I'm basically looking for something that will help me understand the different lens' exposures, and shutter speeds other than what I already know.

Thank you!

I agree, Understanding Exposure is great.

I have seen similar questions a bunch, so I wrote a listing a while back of some of the books I have found pretty good (see linke below). The one that helped me the most to date is "The Photographer's Eye" which is not about exposure though, but composition.
