As a birthday resolution (screw New Years - that's played out), I want to learn to take better photos. I take decent photos, sometimes even good ones, but I'd be uncomfortable presenting a one-man show of my art, for instance. There is always more to learn in any case.

If any of my seven readers has cogent suggestions as to good photo books, I'm all ears.

My camera-eye is pretty good, but my knowledge of shutter speed, depth of field, and color density leaves much to be desired. I plunked down for Thom Hogan's book on my particular camera, and am figuring out how to bracket a scene (which boils down to under-and-over exposing the subject, then merging the result).

Typical of the introvert - simultaneously over-confident in one's own abilities and self-doubting. Oh well.
