Need a good book
Hi guys, first time poster, long time reader!.

I own a Rebel XTi and I have read a book on black & white photography already when I owned a film SLR..

Now that I have my XTi I would like a refresher because I forgot a lot of stuff since getting back in the game! I'm looking for something that explains all the beginner stuff again, but also gives you exercises and tips on shooting various scenarios (landscapes, sunsets, moving objects, etc)..

I know the basics of photography but I don't have a lot of confidence at the moment. I also have basic skills on Photoshop CS2..

Can you guys recommend something? I can order online or better would be to go to a Chapters or Henry's and pick up a good tutorial book. There is so much material out there that I'm confused on what to buy. I need one that is a proven winner..

Thanks a lot!..

Not necessarily. More than likely it's the same basic information just marketed differently. Either will be fine. (I have the older one)..

I recommend the ebook by Gary Friedman titled "The Complete Guide to Canon's Digital Rebels." It includes information on use of your camera plus instructions for getting the most out of different photographic situations. Do a Google search to find it..

OK, let me start by saying that I am NOT implying anything here, so PLEASE do not take this the wrong way...But a very good book that I bought my wife years ago was one of the yellow and black "Photography for Dummies" book, it explains things in easy to understand language. Also, there is a "Digital Photography for Dummies" as well as "Photoshop for Dummies."-.

I vet the local bookshops on a weekly basis..

One recent title that looks promising (I have actually "skimmed" it at the shop) for "beginners" through to "intermediate" may be:.

" Photo.pedia" (actual title of the book, not a web address, LoL),.
