The Art Of Photography: An Approach To Personal Expression (PDF) WORK
I love this book. Through the author, you can see how to take your own personal expression of your subject(s) and capture it through this medium, photography. I love the size of the book, how Mr. Barnbaum presents his voice through his words and more importantly, through his photography.
The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression (PDF)
In plain English, Barnbaum presents how-to techniques for both traditional and digital approaches. Yet he goes well beyond the technical as he delves deeply into the philosophical, expressive, and creative aspects of photography. This beautiful book is geared toward every level of photographer who seeks to make a personal statement through their chosen medium.

If making is connecting, as Gauntlett claims, then art-making has a rightful place in the traditional social science research toolkit. As a platform for self-expression, art practices can foster deeper connections between research participants and researchers, fostering a more human approach to research.
