I'm always trying to improve my understanding of my hobbies and have found some fantastic books along my learning journey. If you want to know more about photography, creative blogging, business, and lighting then the books above are a great read. My particular favourites include 'the nature of photographs' by Stephen Shore. This is a theory book on photography and shows how the content of an image affects the viewers perception of an image. It's quite an in depth book and takes a while to read but it challenges the way you see an image and makes you think with an open mind. Another of my favourites from the shelf above is 'beyond the lens' from the Association of Photographers. This book is a very valuable resource for anyone looking to get into photography full time, it covers legal requirements, useful hints and websites and a lot of information on licensing, paperwork and how to stay on track when starting a new business.
I've yet to start a few of these books but will give reviews on those that are worth a look.
for a free photoshoot consultation or to book your shoot.
