    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
    advanced.
    Also the Ansel Adams series of 3 books
    "The Camera"
    "The Negative"
    and
    "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
    reference.

    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.
