Having a fetish for photography would definitely attract you towards photography books, but you should know which ones are the best. For those who are novice when it comes to photography, but would like to be veteran photographers, here are a few books that will direct them in the correct path.
“The Digital Photography Book”, Vol. 1 (Scott Kelby) in considered as one of the best and most revered photography books recommended for learners. There are a total of 4 volumes of the series that are available in the market. Scott Kelby has a certain way of presenting instructions in a humorous way, which strikes an immediate chord with the reader.
“Skin: The complete guide to digitally lighting, photographing and retouching faces and bodies” is one of the most ideal photography books for portrait photographers. One of the most important aspects of this book is its emphasis on various types of skin tones. This book throws light on each and every factor that contributes towards making the subject of the photo look prominent.
“Learning to see creatively – design, colour and composition in photography” written by Bryan Peterson emphasises not only on the rule of thirds, but also on many more diverse rules of composition. If you are looking for photography books that focus more on patterns, frame with frame, shapes, lines, diagonals, etc., then go for this one.
The three photography books mentioned above are the best, but you can also go for “Humanity: A celebration of friendship, family, love and laughter” or “The Photographer’s eye: Composition and Design for better digital photos”.
