Actually, some of these will more likely just end up on my bookshelf and used for reference (they aren't meant to be read cover to cover), but I will at least flip through all of the pages first:
- Taking Stock: Make money in microstock creating photos that sell
This is the book I started reading first. I have been told by so many people that my photos are good... Really good... So I started looking into the many sites available online for selling them. When I saw this book, I figured it couldn't hurt to learn a little more about selling those pictures. This book was very inforamative! The manin thing I have learned is that, while my pictures might be good, they are mostly night right for microstock site. :-( But, now I know what kind of pictures to take to try my hand at selling them.
- National Geographic Photography Field Guide
I got this at Half Price Books. This will be more of a reference book, but I will page through it first.
- The Photography Bible
I got a great deal on this book at a Borders bookstore that was going out of business.

Katie actually found this book hiding on a shelf at the same Borders I mentioned above. When she decided she wasn'y going to buy it, I snatch it up! It just looked like a really fun book with some fun photo projects. Plus, who can resist the picture of the puppy on the cover?
- Faces: Photography and the Art of Portraiture
This book is filled not only with amazing photos but also with tutorials about taking amazing photos of faces. :-)
- Better Photo Basics
I have actually had this book on my bookshelf for awhile. I was sent to me awhile ago by the publisher for me to review for my Family Crafts site. I really enjoyed it! If you are interested, please take a moment to read my book review.
