    At the moment it's "Ansel Adams at 100". The reproductions are superb, but the best part is the writing by John Szarkowsky (sp?). It's historical, insightful and refreshingly critical. "Edward Weston, Life's Work" may join it as co-favorites if it's as well written as the Adams book, but I've not had time to read it yet.

    • Chas Ray Krider "Motel Fetish" is a wonderful fetish book filled with creative poses and simple yet effective lighting, mostly using table lamps.
    • David Bailey - "If We Shadows". Full of nice B/W photos
    • "Photographing people - Portrait, Fashion and Glamour". Great book iwth lots of photos with notes on camera, exposure, techniques, ligthing and anything else related to the shot.
    • All of my Eric Kroll stuff

    Should come as no surprise - mine is "The Artist's Way", by Julia Cameron. Not really a "photography" book - but the most useful *I've* ever found for doing photography.

    Well, it all depends. My favorite reference books for process are "Controls in B&W photography" by Richard J. Henry and "Developing" by Jacobson & Jacobson.

    If I could only keep one book on printing it would definitely be the "Master printer's course" by Dr. Rudman.

    Of course on testing and developing, the BTZS would be my choice.

    For picture viewing, Paul Caponigro's "Masterworks from forty years"

    Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color & Composition in Photography by Bryan Peterson
    Book has some great ideas for making images simple. Has a lot of head to head comparisons so you can see exactly what he is trying to explain.

    At the moment I would have to say the new Edward Weston book from Lodima Press and the Tuscany series (volumes I & II) from Michael A. Smith and Paula Chamlee. Why? Because they're my newest books and I still haven't flipped all the way through all of them yet!

    At the moment I'm reading Willi Beutler's "Meine Dunkelkammer-Praxis" from 1954, alternating with Hans Windisch' "Die neue Foto-Schule", 1941 edition.

    In a few days I'll receive my book of Jan Sudek's images of Prauge...

    Alas, no, I'm a poor student and the books alone killed my book budget for just about the rest of the year

    Great books, though, I especially recommend Paula's book. She has some wonderful stuff that I really enjoy.
