    I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good basic photography for a
    beginner. I have been using point and shoot cameras for years but just
    recently bought a Nikon F75 and would like get a little deeper into
    photography. I would prefer a book that uses pictures to compare different
    camera settings. Like the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words.
    I saw one at Chapters called KISS: Photography by John Garrett, has anyone
    read this book? Thanks for all your help.

    Try Michael Langford's "Basic Photography", excelent book for beginners and
    Also the Ansel Adams series of 3 books
    "The Camera"
    "The Negative"
    "The Print"
    these 3 books cover just about every possible aspect of photography, can be
    a bit heavy going at times, but defenitly got it all, and excellent for

    John Shaw's books. I learned everything I know, except for studio lighting,
    from them. His work and his books are at www.johnshawphoto the man's work is
    amazing. His "Nature photography Guide" would be a great start. Even if you
    do not want to shoot nature, his books can be applied everywhere.
