I have finally purchased my first professional-grade camera and was wondering if anyone here could recommend some decent photography books or websites/blogs? 8)
Thank you Preacher, but the link isn't working. =( What are the title and author?Preacher":9uo9pyw4 said:Start with this book:
This should be your starting point (other than your user manual for your camera). Read this while practicing the principals that it explains. What camera did you buy an what lens do you have?
I never go anywhere without it. I'm especially loving street photography. And is is a DSLR, so I've been experimenting quite a lot. I have deleted hundreds of over and under exposed photos to prove it. =PHarlock999":zo4jhctm said:If your camera is a DSLR with a fully manual mode, the camera itself will do a pretty good job teaching you about photography. Just start shooting, and play around with the shutter speed and aperture (f-stop) and note how they work together. With the instant results and not having to worry about the cost of film, you can experiment like crazy. If you're still shooting film, or you want info about filters and flashes etc., then a basic photography book would be a good idea.
