I am new to DSLRs and have no in-depth knowledge of photography. I have been studying the relationship between shutter speed, ISO, aperture, depth of field, etc. I think it would be very helpful for me at this point if I could obtain a guide of suggested camera settings and photographic technique, and their likely effects for various subjects and photographic conditions. Ideally, I would like to have a short guide that I could carry with me and a lengthier book that would provide some depth to the explanations. For a book, I'd prefer a format that is somewhat compartmentalized, allowing one to dive into sections of interest and not require a cover to cover reading to understand the later chapters. I'm okay with eBooks. Recommendations?

Thanks in advance,
Scott

If you want an actual book, Understanding Exposure, by Bryan Peterson is excellent.
