The Art of Photography Press Release

Santa Barbara, CA—This is an updated and newly revised edition of the classic book The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression (Rocky Nook, $44.95 USD, 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, Bruce 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.

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. This latest incarnation of his textbook, which has evolved, grown, and been refined over the past 35 years, will prove to be an ongoing, invaluable photographic reference for years to come. It is truly the resource of choice for the thinking photographer.

    After this book has gotten your creative juices flowing you may wish to consult another Rocky Nook publication for a complete guide to the mechanics of digital photography from image management through processing and printing from Gulbins and Steinmueller’s “The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook”. Highly recommended.
