#2 Anything by Scott Kelby
Okay – so I don’t own every book that Scott Kelby has ever written. But if people ask me which books on photography they should buy and I’m short of time my answer is: “Anything by Scott Kelby!”
It’s really hard to find faults in Scott Kelby’s work. His writing style is clear. His techniques are practical and up-to-date. And his books are valued by amateurs and professionals alike.
When I first wanted to learn about Adobe Photoshop, Scott Kelby was the man I turned to. I knew I would get quality information in a practical, well written style. I’m going to cheat here and suggest you look through his Author Page on Amazon and see what catches your eye. What you buy will depend on whether you own any Adobe software and what type of photography interests you.
