Photography Books For Beginners

Dan Eitreim

December 30, 2014

If you are studying beginner’s photography and are interested in taking your photography to the next level, you will soon realize that you need a few well written books on photography for beginners.

There’s a complete listing of MUST HAVE e-books below!

Did you know that in digital photography, ALL of the photo principles are virtually the same as in film?

It’s true. You still need to select the right exposure… shutter speed, aperture, ISO, lenses and so on. The only difference is that the image will be captured and stored on a digital sensor rather than on film. That’s it.

Far too many photography books spend most of their time advocating a “take the shot and fix it later in Photoshop” attitude. While Photoshop is a handy tool for fixing a minor problem, if you are spending more than a few minutes in Photoshop trying to get the image you visualized, you are doing it all wrong.

In fact, most shooters are getting worse shots because they are ignoring good photo principles and relying on Photoshop to “fix it”.

Photoshop should be used for minor tweaks… The CAMERA should be used to create your vision.

So, what is the best book to learn photography?

First – surprisingly – you already have a great one to use as a starter! The camera’s manual!

Yes, I know it is boring but… Read the camera’s manual!

I think your manual is the best book to start your photo education.

Faster than you could imagine, you will have mastered all the buttons, switches and knobs on your camera. You will not only know what they do, but you will know exactly when and how to use each one.

Then, you can start learning and experimenting with more advanced techniques.

That’s when your beginner’s photography “hobby” will truly become a major, fulfilling part of your life. AND, all your friends will soon be – mistakenly – asking you for Photoshop pointers.

To get started check out my books. They are designed to take you from complete novice into some pretty advanced techniques.

Here is a COMPLETE set of photography books I’ve written for beginners (and pros too!) – as well as a couple non-photography books that I’ve written. Each one builds on the ones that came before – but at the same time can stand on its own if you just want a quick photo tutorial on a specific area.

Most of my books are designed to be read on a Kindle reader but if you don’t have one, just download the free app from Amazon and you can read them on your phone, tablet, computer or whatever.

Check them out!
