Book for Digital Photography - Scott Kelby or Jay Dickman
Aug 14, 2009

I am anxiously learning hwo to make my t1i do what I want it to do. I have already read Understanding Exposure. I will probably re-read it, but I was looking for another perspective to compliment it.

I was looking in Borders and I liked the way Jay Dickman's book "Perfect DDigital Photography" looked. It is available here: http://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Digital-Photography-Jay-Dickman/dp/007160166X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1250272830&sr=8-1

I also have heard great things about Scott Kelby's book, which is available here: http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Photography-Book-Scott-Kelby/dp/032147404X/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_2 .

I am very interested in learning the real hows of macro photography and hdr. I also need to learn a lot about post processing and how to make the pictures I take look better. Even a simple thing like what is proper white balance doesn't really click to me. I understand what white balance is, but I don't recognize it done properly when I see it.

I would like a book that would help me get more up to spped on these issues and I got a lot of the basics from Understanding exposure. I have a feel for a lot of the theory, but the practical aspect of making it work right is tough.

I figured I would ask about which of these two is recommended. Thanks.
