I love books.  I’m always recommending books to people when I’m asked about how I did this or that when it comes to most things and photography is no different.  In my own opinion, everyone should have a library, and photographers should have these books on their shelves.  From top to bottom, the following books are displayed:
1. Nikon D200 by David D. Busch.  Reading the manual is definitely something you should do.  Having a book or two about your camera that goes beyond the manual and brings some of the concepts and capabilities of the camera together in a easier presented manner is good stuff and the reason why I picked up this book.
2. Nikon Creative Lighting System by J. Dennis Thomas.  I’m a huge fan of Nikon Creative Lighting System, it is an amazing feature that can only be achieved by using Nikon speedlights.  So buy your respective camera’s recommended speedlight, you won’t regret the additional features you get.  I know I love my SB-700 and SB-910.
3. Layers by Matt Kloskowski.  Buy this book if you are just starting out with Photoshop regardless of which version you have.  I can’t say it enough, you have to have a strong understanding of layers within Photoshop to achieve the results you want.  The concepts of layers is absolutely essential foundation of learning more advanced concepts within Photoshop.
4. Sketching Light by Joe McNally.  Buy anything that Joe McNally writes or produces, he’s a master photographer!
5. Light It.  Shoot It.  Retouch It by Scott Kelby.  If you want to learn the ins and outs about strobes, this is a good place to start.
6. Going Pro by Scott Bourne and Skip Cohen.  So you want to be a professional photograph.  This book will help you with the transition.
7. Photoshop: Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers.  Very nice editing concepts are discussed in this book.
8. Nudes by Marc Baptiste.  If you are going to photograph people, you better start studying anatomy, and other photographers who know how to shoot the human form in artistic ways. 
Please share some of your favorite photography books with me.  I’d like to know what you’d recommend to other photographers to read.

260/365 - Lunch Time on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.
I tried to eat something healthy at lunch today by going to Midtown Deli and getting a turkey wrap, with Swiss cheese, American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, regular mustard, and extra pickles.  I don’t normally eat cupcakes and pastries, but I was in the rare mood to try out one of the cupcakes that was in the lunchroom with the strawberries.  Lunch was good, and the cupcake was okay.

256/365 - And the Winner Is… on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.  
This is a photograph of Belle, a pit bull owned by one of my co-workers.  My co-worker won a free photo shoot that I raffled off at the Christmas Party back in 2011.  I was finally able to have the photo session with my colleague and her family, we had a great time.  Belle is a true southern belle and likes my camera.

I’m at my desk taking a break from preventing the end of the world!  Back to work now people, nothing to see here.  Photograph taken with my iPhone 4S.

254/365 - The Morning Dew on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.
I got to work a few minutes early and decided to take a few shots of the morning dew on the trees.   Mission accomplished, although when using the macro filters, I do have to focus manually on the subject.

253/365 - Macro Lens Filter Test on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.  http://www.eaphotography.us 
I just picked up some Digital Concepts macro lens filters that screw onto the front of my AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens.  I used the 10x macro filter to take this shot.  When you screw on one of the four filters (1x, 2x, 4x, and 10x) onto the front of the lens, it produces a magnification by the respective factor.  This is definitely the poor man’s way of taking a macro shot, but it is interesting to use until I buy a true macro lens.

252/365 - This is Where I Make the Donuts on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.   http://www.eaphotography.us
This is my desk at my day job, fighting the never ending challenges of Information Technology support.  When I go home in the evening, for some weird reason I find myself always missing the dual 28-inch flat screen monitors that I have at my job.  Working with 28-inch screens at works makes me realize my single 22-inch setup at home really is, LOL.  The “easy” button is required for every technician to have, I press it several times a day when I fix those problems that are truly “easy” to resolve.

One of the highlights of any day is getting off of work.  When I wake up Monday through Friday, I’m thinking about 5pm already and what will I discover for my daily photograph.  I got off work on this day to clear sunny skies and nice clouds.

I scored a quick shot of my brother, Donte doing something on his iPhone.  I guess whatever it was that he was doing, saying, or viewing, he found it pleasing, and I was able to get my photograph for the day.  Strong work Donte!

249/365 - My New Nikon SU-800 Commander on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.  http://www.eaphotography.us 
I had been wanting one of these for quite a long time.  I’m a fan of Nikon CLS and use it whenever I can.  The Nikon D200 can get down in commander mode and use Nikon CLS, but even with the built-in flash disabled, I would still get the pre-flash in my photographs.  The SU-800 is worth every penny, I picked it up used off of eBay in very good condition with all accessories.  If you shoot with a Nikon DSLR, you should own one of these and a SB-910 in my opinion.  Stay tuned!  This photograph was taken with my iPhone 4S.
