Books about Basic Techniques of Photography
The basic techniques contained in a strictly non-exhaustive list of books, which have become real cornerstones for anyone who wants to explore the world of digital photography. The list ranges from “multimedial” authors as Scott Kelby and Joe McNally, to other more institutional but equally enlightening authors as Michael Freeman and Bryan Peterson. For those who are really at the beginning and do not know where to start, I would recommend the following triptych: the first volume of Scott Kelby (“The Digital Photography Book, part 1“) for a simple and immediate approach to the first photographic experiences; then a classic like “The photographer’s Eye” by Michael Freeman; finally an extraordinary stimulus to grow your creativity and avoid the “snapshots”, thanks to “Learning to See Creatively” by Bryan Peterson. Below is a list of books not to be missed. For each book there is a short review, in addition to the link to Amazon’s store and to the digital versions on iTunes and Google Play, if available.
In the “Photographer’s Vision” Freeman became deeply involved in the analysis and interpretation of the works of great masters such as Elliott Erwitt, Walker Evans, Richard Avedon and many others. This exercise of interpretation is very useful to learn important lessons. As you can imagine, the book is full of amazing images that have shaped the history of photography.
