Book publisher Rocky Nook has released The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression by Bruce Barnbaum. The new book is an updated and newly revised edition of the classic The Art of Photography (originally published in 1994), which has often been described as the most readable, understandable, and complete textbook on photography.
With well over 100 beautiful photographic illustrations in both black-and-white and color, as well as numerous charts, graphs, and tables, this book presents the world of photography to beginner, intermediate, and advanced photographers seeking to make a personal statement through the medium of photography.
Without talking down to anyone, or talking over anyone’s head, Barnbaum presents “how to” techniques for both traditional and digital approaches. Yet he goes well beyond the technical, as he delves deeply into the philosophical, expressive, and creative aspects of photography so often avoided in other books.
Bruce Barnbaum is recognized as one of the world’s finest landscape and architectural photographers, and for decades has been considered one of the best instructors in the field of photography.
