These books are a personal ongoing source of study and inspiration; since I buy lots of them, I'll keep posting new titles and personal reviews here when possible. 

All books are listed in casual order.

Book I love n.1


When I bought this book I was looking for some guide to add a more cinematic look to my colors and to give my work a better sense of focus, visually speaking. It really opened an entire new world to me about rhythm and visual hierarchy in a picture and I applied what I learnt here to my digital painting. The author wrote more than twenty books about photography (I bought another one too), his writing is clear and the wonderful pictures he takes around the world make this book a special one.
