Digital Photography Books

Some of my favorite digital photography books.

Some well chosen books can make a world of difference in your digital photography. Some of the best books are about the camera side of digital photography, some are about the digital darkroom side, and some are about both. Out of hundreds of photography books in my library, I picked out the best.

Some of these books are pretty basic and some are very advanced. To help you pick out the best books for you, read The Best Digital Photography Books and The “Mastering Photoshop” Series.

Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies by Jim Doty, Jr. One of the highest rated books at Amazon, this books will help you master the controls on your digital camera.
