Photography: Barbara/ Upton, John/ Stone, Jim London: Books
You should pick up this text if you're interested in processing your own film in a tank, processing paper, learning about shutter, aperture, lenses, focal length, etc., etc. etc. Put be prepared to throw out more money if you don't have access to a darkroom or the tools needed. I would highly recommend using another book if you're interested in Digital, because Upton and London don't dwell as much into Digital as they do Traditional B&W and Color.
