Product Description

About the Author

Bruce Barnbaum, of Granite Falls, WA, began photography as a hobbyist in the 1960s, and after four decades, it is still his hobby. Photography has also been his life's work for the past 40 years.

Bruce's educational background includes Bachelor's and Master's degrees in mathematics from UCLA. After working for several years as a mathematical analyst and computer programmer for missile guidance systems, he abruptly left the field and turned to photography.

Bruce is recognized as one of the finest darkroom printers on this planet, both for his exceptional black-and-white work, as well as for his color imagery. He understands light to an extent rarely found and combines this understanding with mastery of composition, applying his knowledge to an extraordinarily wide range of subject matter.

Bruce has authored several books, some of which have become classics. His early publication of The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression (first published in1994 and going out of print in 2002) was updated, revamped, and newly released in late 2010 by Rocky Nook. This new book became an instant bestseller and is sure to remain a classic for years to come.

Bruce has been an active environmental advocate for more than three decades, both independently and through his involvement and leadership with organizations such as the Sierra Club, the National Audubon Society, the Mountain Loop Conservancy, Futurewise, and the North Cascades Conservation Council.

Having read his previous book, I was looking forward to this however slightly disappointed with it. A long read and full of stories. Not enough ideas or instruction for my liking but a decent insight on how to go beyond the "norm". Worth the read but beware it's not as "instructional" like how most people might think it is.

It fully meets my expectations. Having read the previous book, some material (including photos) repeats. But it sure is helpful for those who haven't read Art of photography.

A worthy follow up to the classic Art of Photography and an useful and thoughtful book. Very well printed with most illustrations in fine mono.

A great book to clarify our approach to photography by a deep thinker on the subject. Not a catalogue of trendy tricks for digital photography.
