Photoworkshop proposes 3 books (available in pdf format) which I find very good and with a simple language so that everyone can easy understand photography without having headaches.
Most of all I like “Simplified Tips & Trics” by Gregory Georges which covers in 10 Chapters each with 10 Subchapters. Youll find out about selecting good photo opportunities, adjusting the camera settings, picking good light for the photos, prevent red-eye, reveal details with flash, shooting close-ups, portraits, and the advantage of the “Golden Hour”, controlling the exposure time and exposure compensation including combining two photos to get a full dynamic range, using the histogram to get the exposure you want, controlling focus and depth of field, composition tricks and creative tips, and, then, it goes deeper into image editing with Adobe Photoshop Elements.
The other book is called “50 Fast Digital Camera Techniques” by Kevin I. Moss also has 10 Chapters: Getting the Most from your Digital Camera, Taking Better Photographs, Using Advanced Features, Increasing the Quality of your Photos, Taking Pictures of People and Pets, Photographing Nature, “Scape” (Landscape, Waterscape, etc) Photography, Creative and Alternative Photography, Displaying and Taking Care of your Digital Images, and, finally, Becoming a better Photographer.
The 3rd book, called “Understanding the Aperture” and written by Bruce Waren, is a lot more technical as you can already notice from the title. “When you open or close a lens aperture, you double or halve the area through which light can travel As a result, exposure itselt is doubled or halved compared to the previously selected f-stop.”
