Besides your camera’s manual, there are few other books you should read if you are serious about learning the art and craft of photography.
My all-time favorite photography book is Photography by London, Upton, and Stone. This is a photography classic. If you are to buy only one book that would teach you photography, this one should be the one. I call it A Photographer’s Bible! The only downside is its price as it’s also a college manual and we know that college books are not cheap.
If you are not that interested in photography to invest and study Photography by London, Upton and Stone (any edition you can find), here’s a random list of popular photography books that every photographer, in my opinion, should have and/ or read.
