I love photography books, and I bet you do, too! I thought it would be fun to assemble a list of books for photographers (or photography fans) that I have particularly enjoyed. Now, off to your local library with you! You can also purchase all of these books via Amazon.
The Photographer's Guide to Posing: Techniques to Flatter Everyone, by Lindsay Adler As we all know, if you have every element of a portrait perfect, but there's something off about your subject, the image won't be a "keeper". Posing is a skill that all photographers should at least be familiar with if they're going to create wonderful photographs. Lindsay writes an entire book on the subject, but one of the best takeaways from this book may be her five "go-to poses" that can always be used.
Beaches, by Gray Malin Even if you don't know Gray Malin by name, chances are you've seen his work. His playful photographs of beaches around the world are shot from doorless helicopters and have become synonymous with summer bliss! Beaches features photographs of beach scenes in more than 20 cities across 6 continents and is just plain fun.
Kids: Photos to Brighten Your Day, by Tracy Sweeney My own joyous celebration of children. I had to include this collection of children at play! This book features the wonder and magic of childhood and is perfect for gifting to parents, grandparents, or even your favorite child photographer!
