    If you want to do product photography: Light Science and Magic

    If you want to photograph and retouch people: Skin

    Just to get the list started.

    if you need the basics of how a camera works and what it does, understanding exposure is a great one.

    I just finished the Kelby Digital Photography book and didn't really like it. Its somewhere in between a total n00b and amateur and didn't have too much technical info. I felt like the book had a very pompous tone too, like Kelby thought he was being funny most of the time but was really just coming off as a dick.
