    My best friend's birthday is coming up and I wanted to give him a nice book on photography. Now, I was thinking about Ansel Adam's `The Camera', but this was written in the analog times. Alternatives seem to stem from that time period, too.

    Is there anything you can recommend?
    (Since I'm mostly self-taught, I don't really know any good books, either.)

    I found "Understanding Exposure" a very good book. It was recommended to me by many other forum members

    Thanks a lot, guys :)
    I've ordered Understanding Exposure and I'll wait for his feedback.

    Some of the books on the lists may actually interest me …*:)
