The library has many books on basic photography to get you started or give you ideas. Be creative and take a chance!
Although I’ve only worked with Canon SLR cameras I love how Scott Kelby provides advice applicable to both Nikons and Canons in his book, The Digital Photography Book, but best of all, all the tips are transferable to any level of photographer and camera.
Kelby has worked with many professional photographers and provides basic principles to reach the next level with humor embedded in his lessons to keep his readers remembering.
There are some Photoshop tips offered in the book; however, the emphasis is geared towards getting the best shot possible thus minimizing any additional post editing to the pictures.
Getting the results that you like can be tricky, but photography should be enjoyable and fun. Kelby says that not every shot will be perfect, but that’s all part of the learning process. Hey it’s digital right? Snap, snap, view, and if you like you can keep it, if not then delete it.
Without a doubt this book is a great recommendation for those budding photographers out there. After reading this book you won’t be disappointed. It might even inspire you to read his second and third volumes.
