Announcing the fully revised, 2nd edition of:

The Art of Photography…A Personal Approach to Artistic Expression

Bruce’s acclaimed textbook, The Art of Photography…an Approach to Personal Expression, published by Rocky Nook Publishing Company has become the iconic book on expressive photography. Now it is updated, expanded and fully revised as the 2nd edition, with the altered title The Art of Photography…A Personal Approach to Artistic Expression, making it even more relevant for any photographer, whether your approach is analog or digital, color or black and white.

10” x 10” in size, 392 pages in length, containing over 175 superbly reproduced photographic images in both black and white and color. It emphasizes the overriding importance of light, compositional relationships, and the meaning of your subject matter. It contains step-by-step information on using the digital tools effectively and wisely for expressive color or black and white image files. For film/analog enthusiasts it takes you through the Zone System in an easily understandable way, and details darkroom approaches to produce the richest of all black and white images. 

The book’s uniqueness rests on its emphasis of producing creative photographs that convey artistic insight, rather than just “capturing” what is before your eyes. It is both a textbook on photography and a photographic art book. It is beautifully designed and printed. It even lies flat when opened to the page you want. All this in a book that retails for only $49.95.

Following nine reprints of the first edition (which had been translated into five foreign languages), the fully revised 2nd edition goes even deeper into the methods of producing expressive photographic imagery.

The prime focus of the book remains squarely on creative, expressive, artistic photography. The book is filled with technical information—for both digital or analog approaches—that is clear in its explanations while consistently guiding the reader toward applying the technical aspects sensibly and effectively for expressive purposes.

Bruce says it has been a great pleasure choosing the most appropriate images to illustrate the book’s text, in order to make this a “living” document. The illustrations include some of his best known imagery, as well as many new images never previously published or displayed. Initial reviews have labeled this book as “essential” for all serious photographers, amateur or professional.
