I need all the help I can get and I borrowed 'Photography Hints & Tips' by Michael Busselle from our local library, found it full of good tips and am thinking of buying a couple of his books. Any other books I should consider?
How to do everything with your digital camera by Dave Johnson was the book that has helped me the most of any I have read. Covers DoF, Focusing, composition etc as well as editing etc.
G'day Pat, there is a book I see recommended in forums called "Understanding Exposure" (I think) I hope someone will help me out here with the author. I have not read it myself but its one I have been on the look out for. By all accounts it is said to be very good.

I absolutely loved the Lonely Planet Guide to Travel Photography - some awesome insights if you've got that sort of interest.
My favourite photography book is the "National Geographic Photography Field Guide." It's well-written, very readable, and covers the basics all the way through advanced hands-on advice. I have many different books, most of which cover the same ground, but this is the one I keep handy.
Thanks for those - am checking them out at Amazon, the National Geographic looks good.
I've also heard that understanding exposure is supposed to be very good, haven't read it myself either
