    Hi Melt,

    Probably Scott Kelby's The Digital Photography Book (parts 1, 2, and (shortly) 3).

    When you say you want to start "manual", can you give us a bit more insight into what your meaning? Manual Exposure? Manual Focusing? or heaven forbid actually reading a camera manual before operating the camera? (some say that the latter has never been done before!) (or even attempted!).

    Bryan Peterson's "understanding exposure" and "understanding shutter speeds" are two great starter books.

    This one is a good start. I have taken some workshops with Richard Bernabe and he is one of the authors. Richard has a very unique perspective and sets you thinking about how best you can capture those gleeful moments of Mother Nature. Just by taking his workshops I have learned a lot. I'm actually waiting for the 2nd edition of this book which I believe is slated for release later this year (fall?).

    Disclaimer: I am in no way related to any of the authors. I just have had the pleasure of learning from them in person and know that they do a good job of teaching photography.

    Cheers!
