    What do you guys recommend? I looked at some and like Digital Darkroom, Surreal Photography, and another on composition. But they're all $30 due to the thick color pages. :wtc:

    If you're looking into books with photos in them, what kind of photography do you enjoy looking at?

    If you want to learn, what techniques or areas of photography are you interested in learning?

    Try to be more specific with questions. I have several photography books, but I wouldn't recommend them to everyone. You obviously have to be semi-interested to find them enjoyable. :o

    I ordered all three just to see what they are :big grin: Couldn't find all three in the UK oddly. Also, it was cheaper buying them from the US including shipping to the UK. As bloody usual, the UK charges waaaay to much for most things :(

    Stand in one spot, shoot 30 shots of it, after 30, then you'll start getting creative.

    The rule of 1/3s is horseshit.
