I got my first Canon SLR. Would you recommend some books for me please.
I recommend the manual. I'm not being silly......a good manual can teach you a lot. There are lots of good books about photography in general, but in addition to mastering basic concepts you're going to need to know how to manipulate your specific camera's settings.
After the manual, Scott Kelby's books are highly regarded by many.
Have fun with your new camera! Which one did you get?
