    How many here collect photography books? Do you have any recommendations or personal favorites?

    The last two episodes of Tequila Time with Art Wolfe showcasing his own book collection have been fun to watch. It may be the results of all the social distancing preventing travel, but I’ve been expanding my own book library with several additions in the past few weeks.

    Today, I’m awaiting the delivery of another Edward Burtynsky book.

    Stephen, I am a big collector of books and have a bunch I will feature here soon.  I did two books already. https://photopxl.com/?s=bookshelf&pum_form_popup_id=182. and with some new gear I just put in place I plan to do. ore of these.  At my old site, I did a whole video series on Edward Burtynsky and have most of his books.  Good choice for a book.  Art Wolfe is a good friend of mine and all his books are amazing, especially the Human Canvas.

    I’ll share more soon.

    Thanks for the link and I’ve watched that full series you did. It was excellent.

    Stephen: In my view there are two types of photography books. There are ‘how to’ books, and there are books of images. Joe McNally’s “The Hot Shoe Diaries” lies within the first category. Freeman Patterson’s “ShadowLight” is definitely in the second. I have books on both. Can’t forget Jeff Schewe’s book on “The Digital Negative” and books on software. To which are you referring?

    Mike.

    P.S. Freeman Patterson’s “Photography and the Art of Seeing” is my personal favourite. 🙂

    OK, here are some of my favorites.

    Man & Yosemite A Photographers  View of the Early Years by Ted Orland.  This is a real gem and essentially a history of photography in Yosemite.  It’s a pity that it is out of print.

    Nature Photography by John Shaw. I remember learning from these books during the film era.

    First Light Five Photographers Explore Yosemite Wilderness by Charles Cramer, Karl Kroeber, Scot Miller, Mike Osborne, and Keith S. Walklet.

    William Neill Photographer – A Retrospective  

    Large Format Nature Photography by Jack Dykinga.  Not only is this book informative, but still today, the images are stunning.
