I'm looking for some good, informational books about photography. I know there's a bunch out there but what has everyone on here read and what's your thoughts?

Depends on what part of photography you want to focus on. Photography basics I have read some of the Photographer's handbook and a few specialized books on specific topics. (like flash photography) But, primarily I read magazines. They are easy to digest in a short amount of time and they are one of the best mediums for keeping up on new technology and new ideas. (besides the Internet)

If you are looking for a good all around book to get the basics of SLR photography down, get her "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. It is a great book that will teach her what functions to use on her camera and for what circumstances. It really gives a great starting point. If she already has a good grasp on the functions on her camera and when to use them, then it might not be the best. if she never takes it off of auto mode then its a sure thing.

thanks

i'll second josh by saying that understanding exposure is a great book. the most helpful one i've read.

the one by scott kelyby "digital photography" is also a great book for cheap!

I third it, Understanding exposure is a great book. I have another that I really like but the name is escaping me.

i second the digital photography by scott kelby. that is a great book aswell. they make a nice duo since they sort of cover different aspects. some overlap but it is minimal.
