I am constantly trying to improve my photography skills and am often reading 2 or 3 different books at any one time. Here are the latest I’ve been reading.

Light: Science and Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting
by Fil Hunter, Steven Biver, Paul Fuqua

This is a great book and has taught me so much about how to use my flash in a studio environment. It sometimes gets a little deep so I tend to read it in short sessions, maybe read a chapter, go try out the concepts then come back and re-read the chapter before moving on to the next.

Here are some of the photos I’ve taken using the techniques outlined in the book.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers
by Scott Kelby

I had been using Lightroom for a couple of months prior to getting this book and thought I knew my way around the program. The first chapter proved that wrong. The number of shortcuts and tips in the first couple chapters completely justified the purchase of the book. I am now so much more efficient with Lightroom and these tips have significantly sped up my workflow.

Although I’m not a big fan of Scott Kelby’s humorous writing style I still highly recommend this book!
