What books and material (in addition to necessary, regular practice) do you personally recommend for:

1) Photography in general
2) Digital SLR photography in general
3) for users of Rebel DSLRs, and T1i / T2i in particular

and why.

Thanks for your comments.

Ralf

Your owners manual is a good starting point. A good understanding of basic exposure is a must, with Bryan Peterson's "Understanding Exposure" at the top of the reading list. If you want a different take on camera operation besides the manual I'd look for one of the magic lantern guides, or digital field guide, for your particular model.

+1 for the books mentioned above. The field guide books are kind of basic, but they are good for beginners and they are inexpensive for a book.

"The Digital Photography Volume 1 Through 3 - by Scott Kelby.

The books had some great tips/hints, and advice on photography in general. It was a great refresher for me. They where quick to the point. They have a little bit of everything for you. I'd say go sit down, and read at boarders and see what you like. A library too, browse the photography section if you don't feel like spending money. Just keep renting them out until you grow tiresome of the book.
