Product Description

About the Author

Bruce Barnbaum, of Granite Falls, WA, entered photography as a hobbyist in the 1960s, and after four decades, it is still his hobby. It has also been his life's work for the past 30 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 has authored several books, some of which have become classics. The Art of Photography was first published in 1994 and remained in print until 2007. Bruce has been self-publishing the book ever since, but with limited distribution (until now).

Bruce is a frequent contributor to several photography magazines. His series "The Master Printing Class" is featured in each issue of Photo Techniques, and his articles are published regularly in LensWork. Through his workshops, articles, lectures, books, and innovative photography, Bruce has become a well-known and highly-respected photographer, educator, and pioneer.

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 a mastery of composition, applying his knowledge to an extraordinarily wide range of subject matter. His work is represented by more than ten galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and is in the collections of museums and private collectors worldwide.

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 Stillaguamish Citizens' Alliance, 1000 Friends of Washington, and the North Cascades Conservation Council.

If you think you know photography..read this book and you will learn an incredible amount about photography that you never thought of before. It is not a beginners guide to how to take a photo, but rather a guide for experienced photographers who want a unique view on lighting, composition, etc... It is packed with information as to what to consider before and after taking a photograph, be it film or digital, although it is clear the authour prefers B+W film. Inspiring to those who one day want to take the "perfect" B+W film shot.

In a world enamored with high technology, with the latest and greatest recently released DSLRs, it’s refreshing to read a book that’s centered on the creative aspects of photography. Just like the last high tech DSLR that I bought, this book by itself will probably not make me a better photographer. But in contrast to that DSLR it stands a greater chance to of getting me on my way in acquiring the photographic skills that will.

If you look for a deep analyse of why a picture stand out, from the contrast to the emotion of the photographer, you'll find out yourself as a really good judge and if you use it for yourself, probably a much better photographer!

I bought this book to give as a present to an relative amateur to photography. It is very detailed and covers every aspect of photography. It is even more advanced than I expected, and perhaps too much for an amateur. Beautifully illustrated.
