"Getting the best from your 35mm SLR camera" by Michael Burgess.
This book was the first book i purchased when i took my first tentative steps into the vast world of photography almost ten years ago. The book was a revelation to me and i was bathed in a sea of information.
The book changed my view on life because photography asks you to look at things differently. Looking at the world through the viewfinder of my camera is a great way to appreciate the finer points of life and when captured on film or memory card allows me to dwell in that moment a little while longer.
The book made me a little smarter but the book served a bigger, less obvious purpose.The book allowed me to discover a whole new world that had previously been hidden from view.
My photos and level of technical competence would not be possible had it not been for that book.
Thank you Michael Burgess.
