The wife and I really enjoyed going to the Princeton Public Library. It is actually one of our favorite places here in Princeton and where we hang out whenever we can. For me, it is a place where I can read in peace, wrestle with my thoughts and come up with new ideas, whether for photography or for my writing. It is also a place where I can borrow books (of course!) and rent movies and music.
But aside from those, there is one other thing which the wife and I really love - the annual book sale. There are always books for sale there but this special event is something the wife and I look forward to every year.
About 20% of what I read are fiction and science books with the rest of devoted to reading and learning about photography. So, when we went to the annual book sale, I went right into the Art/Photography section.
There were a lot of great books. In particular, I bought two books that centered on themes and the art of photography. The books are around thirty years old but it didn't matter. How we view things and how we make beautiful pictures have not changed much anyway. As a matter of fact, I have a blog post where I said that one way to learn about photography is to look at works of art. Those works of art are called masterpieces for a reason...
So, wanna learn about photography and photographic techniques? Go to your public library. You not only gain a lot by reading but you can also show your support by buying the gently used books on sale.
