Get your own copy this bestseller here. Maybe we will meet up someday and I'll personally autograph it, and make it out to you, your pet, your favorite child... you name it!
I have the Peterson book on Learning To See Creatively... highly recommended.I am a retired educator. Books about photography are my go-to-reads. I believe I have read all of the BetterPhoto books. I particularly like, besides the one above, the ones on Nature, Creative Digital Photography, and Exposure. Other than BetterPhoto books I love anything by Bryan Peterson (especially Learning to See Creatively and the Field Guides - Composition & Photography) and anything by Joel Sartore (especially Photo Ark and Photo Basics).
