Would anyone here know of a good basic photography book? A simple one that an old person like myself could understand. I would just like to learn more, as of right now I know nothing. Thanks Darrell

Another good one is your Trigger Finger. Just shoot and shoot and shoot and keep notes of your settings. Read your manuel is probably the most important document. And post pics here and ask questions.

Jim-

There is a lot of truth in your post. However, until we really understand the basic underlying photographic knowledge/principles, our photos are going to be less than we really desire, we don't know why, we become frustrated, and end up taking fewer photos. In short, the learning just dwindles away.

Build yourself a good background, and then you will find the learning experience a good deal easier, and you are reallying enjoying taking all those photos.

Imo , the library has many photography basics books and for me has had a valuable resource for learning and I think it may/will help you a great deal :-)
