    Re: Recommended books

    Hi,
    to be honest: I prefer GIMP.

    Got quite a few Photoshop books though - reviews coming soon...

    Thumbs up Re: Recommended books

    Here is how I got started -

    1. Scott Kelby's Digital Photography. vol 2 has nothing substantially new
    2. Bryan Peterson - Understanding Exposure
    3. Bryan Peterson - Learning to see Creatively

    Other books by Bryan Peterson are equally good

    4. John Shaw' nature photography
    5. If you intend to shoot raw then get Jeff Schewe and Bruce Fraser's Camera Raw
    6. Read the three books by Ansel Adams -
    The Camera
    The Negative
    and the Print
    7. If you are a photoshop user - Get any Scott Kelby book

    My recommendation
    Go through one book at a time.

    Regards,
    Xtack

    Re: Recommended books

    Guess there will be two books under the X-mas tree as a small package was delivered today

    - Take Your Photography to the Next Level : From Inspiration to Image - George Barr

    - Light - Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting

    Don't know if they are recommendable yet, but they at least were recommended to me

    Re: Recommended books

    I would like to recommend this excellent book I recently discovered:

    . Lessons in DSLR Workflow with Lightroom and Photoshop by Jerry Courvoisier

    The title says it all.

    Re: Recommended books

    To everybody wanting to learn/improve/perfect their skills in digital darkroom I recommend this title:

    "The Creative Digital Darkroom" by Katrin Eisman & Sean Duggan

    I've read and browsed many books on the subject and I must say this one is at the top in presenting and explaining different aspects of digital darkroom.
    One word: outstanding.
