Some photography books...

Below are a few of the photography/photoshop books I would recommend:
  1. Creative Digital Monochrome Effects by Joe Farace - Includes sections on in camera black&white, post production b&w, and all sorts of interesting effects. Includes lots of how-to and links.
  2. The Creative Digital Darkroom by Katrin Eismann and Sean Duggan - Shows you how to create many of the effects you see in photographs today. Written for photoshop and lightroom users. Lots of information and details.
  3. Magic Lantern Guides - Olympus Evolt E510 by David Schloss - More in depth than the Oly manual. I got the DVD as well. I put page tabs in mine and refer to it as needed.
  4. The Photographer's Eye by Michael Freeman - gives you instruction on how to develop the ability to compose good photographs. Filled with examples, showing the scene, and explaining how the best shot was accomplished. A worthy read.
