Book Recommendation - Photography

Hi, I'm new to photography, and want to get hold of a book that will teach me, in fairly 'idiots guide' style, about the basics of photography... eg aperture, composition, exposure etc. I WANT to become a fairly good photographer, but have only recently got my first proper camera, and so its very much a hobby right now! I'm based in the UK if that helps (with country of availability), and I'd prefer not to have to shell out HUGE bucks, if possible! Many thanks, Jon...

    Hi,

    I'm new to photography, and want to get hold of a book that will teach me,
    in fairly 'idiots guide' style, about the basics of photography... eg
    aperture, composition, exposure etc.

    I WANT to become a fairly good photographer, but have only recently got my
    first proper camera, and so its very much a hobby right now!

    I'm based in the UK if that helps (with country of availability), and I'd
    prefer not to have to shell out HUGE bucks, if possible!

    Many thanks,

    Jon

    A book that I found very helpful as an introduction is the
    National Geographic Field Guide to Photography (Caputo/Burian)

    John Hedgecoe and yes: Magnificent works!
    Very good for the beginner!

    Another book I'm rather fond of is
    "The Art of Landscape Photography" by Chris Coe
    (coe-incidence? :) *pun: jargl!*)

    Go to your local library.
    Do a seach on "photography".
    A list of Video's, some by John Shaw, should come up.
    These are a great resource to help a new photographer.
