It’s the time of year that the number of photo questions I receive increases dramatically. Many of them have to do with “What is the best . . . .”
So once again I will be revising my “best of the best” of articles recommending the best photo gear, software, books, DVDs, calendars, online photo labs, and a whole lot more. Most of the articles will be revised in October and November, but I am re-doing some of the articles now. As I rewrite each article I will update the links below. You can check the date at the top of each article. Today is the most recent update to the list (Sep. 15, 2015).
THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS AND DVDs
All Purpose Photography Books
Tim Grey Recommends Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies. This is my own photography book. It is one of the highest rated photography books at Amazon.com. It is one of the most detailed and comprehensive “exposure” books on the market, and a great introduction to all things photographic with chapters on people, landscape, wildlife, flower, and sports photography.
History of Photography
People Photography Books
Nature Photography Books
Nature Photography Books: The Three Essentials. If you only read three nature photography books, put these on your “must read” list.
My Favorite Introduction to Landscape Photography. If you only read one book on landscape photography, this should be it. This is my favorite to recommend to new landscape photographers.
Jim Brandenburg: Chased by the Light. A book and video to inspire your nature photography.
Digital Photography and/or Photoshop Books
Photoshop, Lightroom, and Elements Books
Jim Brandenburg: Chased by the Light – the story, the book, and the DVD
