Hey all you professional photographers out there! :) (or just people who like to take pictures...)
My brother asked for a book on photography for Christmas and I have NO IDEA what to get! He got a really nice SLR camera about a year ago and he's really into learning all about light composition, technique, etc. He loves the scientific nitty gritty stuff too. But wants something with lots of pictures and how-tos.
Any suggestions on some good books? Or even some accessories that would be fun to give?
