books for beginners! - reccomendations needed
Hi! I'm new with digital cameras. I've had a little point and shoot, but, I've never learned how to use aperture, ISO, shutter speed, etc. What are some good books that teach about this? Are there any good ones in the context of nature photography?..

Do yourself a favor and get these books. I have around 25 photography books, but these are the only ones that really made a difference for me..

Bryan Peterson:Understanding ExposureLearning to See Creatively.

Scott Kelby:The Digital Photography Book, volume one.

Once you are done with those, Bryan has three other books that are worth buying, and you can also get volume two of Scott Kelby's book if you like the first one..

Good luck!.
