Hi, all. I've read Peterson's "Understanding Exposure"-Fantastic. I really like his writing style, and his photography style. I plan on getting "Learning To See Creatively", also by Peterson. In addition I would like to get either the Kelby "Digital Photography" set or Ang's "Fundamentals". If anyone who has read either or both of these books could chime in-If you could only choose one of the two, which would it be and why? I'm a relative newbie, only shooting for a few months. Thanks.~Eric

I have Kelby's set and they are great. They are full of good information that any photographer will find helpful. They have plenty of "how to do it" ideas and many neat tricks and tips that you may not think of but make perfect sense. It is like having a great photographer take you on as your mentor.

Hope this helps.
