What’s Your Favorite Photography Book?

Ori and Some Photography BooksI just love a good photography book. Call me old fashioned, but for me reading a good book leaves surfing the net eating dust.

It was quite a while since I shared one of the books that had a tremendous impact on my photography – Light: Science and Magic.

It was mostly because the book talked true to the techie in me. While I knew some of the principles discussed in the book, I did not know why they worked. I was also not familiar to many of the theories discussed in the book. Well, after reading it my (photography) life was never the same.

Here is a question to you. What was the photography book that impacted or inspired you the most? It can be a photo album, a learning kind of book like Light: Science and Magic a biography, or any other book that is about photography. Share with us in the comments.

and in case you are wondering, it is my son up there, I’m trying to give him an early start.
