Photography books

Bart Willems
The list author says: "When starting out with photographer, what books to get? This is my list, with some popular choices, and a few ones that are off the beaten path."
Shoot!: Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About 35Mm Photography
Shoot!: Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About 35Mm Photography
"Written for 35mm photography but still relevant in the digital age. I like that it's a collection of articles written by dozens of pro's; multiple articles on the same subject may seem redundant but it's good to see it from different angles."
Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera
Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera
"One of the best books I can recommend when it comes to, well... understanding exposure. It's easy to read, there are many great example pictures in it. If "exposure" is something you struggle with, this is probably the best book to get."
Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color & Composition in Photography (Updated Edition)
Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color & Composition in Photography (Updated Edition)
"Either you like Bryan Peterson, or you hate him. He has an accessible style. This book is less about technique and more about reviewing various options for framing, choosing subjects, etc."
The Moment It Clicks: Photography Secrets from One of the World's Top Shooters
The Moment It Clicks: Photography Secrets from One of the World's Top Shooters
"Some complain that this book doesn't mention lenses and shutter speeds, but that doesn't do it justice. This book is about HOW, but not from a technical perspective. It shows the hoops Joe had to jump through to get some of the shots. Highly educational; it shows that great shots don't come easy, you have to work for them."
LIFE Guide to Digital Photography: Everything You Need to Shoot Like the Pros
LIFE Guide to Digital Photography: Everything You Need to Shoot Like the Pros
"Although this book doesn't offer a lot of depth it does give a pretty good overall introduction to photography. Personally I don't think you can get a lot of concrete information out of this book but it's great to fill in the blanks that other books don't cover."
Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision
Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision
"A bit wooly perhaps, but a welcome distraction if you want to read a book about improving your photographic skills without reading about f/stops and shutter speeds."
Light Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting
Light Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting
"This is simple. If you intend to do off-camera lighting, read this book. Until then you're simply wasting time."
