Originally published in 1994 and first revised in 2010, The Art of Photography: A Personal Approach to Artistic Expression has sold well over 100,000 copies and has firmly established itself as the most readable, understandable, and complete textbook on photography. Featuring nearly 200 beautiful photographs in both black-and-white and color, as well as numerous charts, graphs, and tables, this updated and newly revised edition book presents the world of photography to beginner, intermediate, and advanced photographers who seek to make a personal statement through the medium of photography.

    In this newest edition of the book, Barnbaum has included many new images and has completely revised the text, with a particular focus on two crucial chapters covering digital photography: he revised a chapter covering the digital zone system, and includes a brand-new chapter on image adjustments using digital tools. There is also a new chapter discussing the concepts of “art versus technique” and “traditional versus digital” approaches to photography. Throughout the book, Barnbaum goes well beyond the technical, as he delves deeply into the philosophical, expressive, and creative aspects of photography so often avoided in other books.

    Topics include:

    • Elements of Composition
    • Visualization
    • Light and Color
    • Filters Black-and-White
    • The Digital Zone System
    • The Zone System for Film
    • Printing and Presentation
    • Exploding Photographic Myths
    • Artistic Integrity
    • Realism, Abstraction, and Art
    • Creativity and Intuition
    • A Personal Philosophy
    • And much, much more…
