The Beginner’s Photography Guide by Chris Gatcum

What I love about this book is that it helps you not get lost in your journey of learning photography. Some of the books I read usually starts with basic then jumps into advanced learning and you end up getting lost in the process. The book also have 192 pages only which makes it easy to digest and finishing the book is like an achievement itself already.

The main reason why this book is a must have for beginners in photography is that it is excellent in explaining how the camera works, what settings to choose and what techniques to master and other important lessons like how the aperture and shutter works in the image exposure.

This book is one of the best sellings books and Tony is one of the most popular authors. I followed him in YouTube and even if just watching his youtube channel you can already learn a lot that will greatly improved your skills.

The book is 233 page and with the hand on approach, your learning progress is on a fast paced level. The book is perfect if you are hungry to have stunning photos. Just a note though, you need to have a good understanding of exposure and ahow your camera works.
