A very highly recommended a book by George Barr "Take Your Photography to the Next Level" 190 some pages, 8x10, high quanity paper! very nice I must say., soft cover. I don't take this as a "How To" book I myself get more from looking a pic's than reading., must be the kid in me. I really like the captions next to each pic, gives me a insight of the photographer Geo Barr, and how to improve on my own pictures. I've had this for several weeks now and go back to it a lot for tips and inspiration. A lot of the pic's are very similar to what I do, guess thats why I highly recommend this book. Like I mentioned before very high grade paper, a nice touch. You can check it out on Amazon.com.
