12 Books in 2014 Update!

I posted recently about committing to reading 12 nonfiction books in 2014 (you can read about it here).  I'm happy to say I finished the first one!

I read Beyond Snapshots: How to Take That Fancy DSLR Camera Off "Auto" and Photograph Your Life Like a Pro by Rachel Devine, and I realy enjoyed it!  Although it is not the first photography book I have read, I still feel like I learned a lot.  For a lot of the things (aperture, ISO, etc) I feel like repetition helps me remember all of the rules.  For other aspects of photography, I like getting the viewpoints of different authors.  It seems like everyone does things just a little bit differently and I like the variety!
Hopefully I can continue checking other books off my list.  We'll see how it goes.  I was more motivated to read this book than I have been for others...

  1. Thanks for posting the list again. I am going to look into a few of these books as I am getting into working with my son on some things before Preschool in the fall. Thanks!
