This is an updated and newly revised edition of the classic book 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. 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.
Today's photographers approach their craft in a multitude of ways. With so many millions of people taking up the craft, there's a sizeable support group for every interest, from iPhoneography to artistic, humanitarian, or collaborative photography. Narrative is one such popular field, as more and more photographers take an interest in creating coherent photo stories.
In plain English, Barnbaum presents how-to techniques for both traditional and digital approaches.

Since Humans have existed, we have used self expression art to tell stories, share feelings, and express ourselves. We have invented new ways of artistic self-expression like photography, dance, painting that are unique to humans.
If making is connecting, as Gauntlett claims, then art-making has a rightful place in the traditional social science research toolkit. As a platform for self-expression, art practices can foster deeper connections between research participants and researchers, fostering a more human approach to research. 2b1af7f3a8
