Format: Paperback
From the 3 or 4 books on photo i've bought, this is the best. In fact I was so pleased with his "understanding exposure" book, I bought this one instead of buying all the other ones.
It starts from the basics(aperture/ISO/shutter speed: I thought I had nothing extra to learn on these topics-I was wrong), explains the basics of combining them to get the best picture (not just a good, picture, but the best picture), and then covering more advanced topics and different situations, and important tips on composition. Not all the pros can understand why non-pros can't get the picture that good, but Peterson can and will help you correct that. And he won't do it using time-wasting Photoshop gizmos.

A MUST if you're anything between beginner to intermediate-advanced with a DSLR.

Bryan Peterson's Understanding Photography Field Guide is a MUST if, like me, you enjoy (even on the go...) reading anectodes explaining ways by which a given professional photographer tackles various challenges regarding aperture / shutter speed / composition choices. It combines most of its previous masterpieces in one without compromising anything in picture or text qualities. Equally amazing for its wealth of information within a dense yet clear format, don't forget to take a serious look at Daniel Lezano's wonderful Photography Bible (New Edition)!

Format: Paperback
The title it self speak for it self, What you'll gonna learn from this book is the very basic that every photographer should master first, Understanding how the camera works and arts!. This book is the summary of Bryan's popular books like Understanding exposure, Understanding shutter speed, understanding close-up photography, learning to see creatively etc.. etc. Stay away from torrents for the difference between the book it self and the scanned PDF is like night and day. The pictures are stunning, the book it self is very well made so it will naturally spark your interest to read.
