    The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression by Bruce Barnbaum

    Has anybody got this book? It seems that Bruce is well respected (plus I like his abstract work) and wondered if the book was worthwhile.

    I would appreciate your comments before I purchase

    If I only had two books on photography this would be one of them. The other is Les McLean's book. BTW, I have both.

    I had emailed Bruce a while back about his book to get a copy of it, but he said he had a new edition coming out. Just checked his website and the new one's ready! It adds a new chapter to the old books and is available directly from Bruce. More info on his website:

    www.barnbaum.com

    I plan on ordering my copy soon.

    Thanks for the quick responses.

    Seems its one of those books. And with three glowing references I think I will order a copy.

    Thanks

    I have the first edition and it's one of the best books I have in a collection of 100's of photographic books. Buy it.

    Yup, I've got it too and it's been the single best book on photography I've ever owned. Not only is there abundant information on procedure, but also marvelous expositions on aesthetic considerations as well. I'll probably also buy the latest incarnation when I can afford yet another book.
