    im really trying to improve my photography skills, I understand the basics but am still very much a beginner. I have been attempting photography for a few years with manual SLR and point and shoot but have just recently got my first DSLR (a canon t2i).

    Any book that you found extremely helpful or eye opening?

    The book that most opened my eyes when I started playing around with my first SLR was "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson (Amazon link: Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera: Amazon.ca: Bryan Peterson: Books)

    As far as other publications go, I find "Digital SLR Photography", a magazine by a UK publisher to be awesome. Everything from product reviews, DIY lessons, inspiration, challanges, photoshop knowledge. It's a good read, and is always inspiring.

    Good luck in your ventures.
