    "More Finely Focused" is Available!

    “More Finely Focused” will help you compose and make better photographs. Based on Bruce Barlow’s (that’s me) highly successful “Composition Intensive” workshop at Peters Valley Craft Center in August, 2012, I have packaged the workshop material and exercises into a new book, and added more.

    “More Finely Focused” is a 183-page pdf download, full of color and black and white illustrations.

    Find it at bwbarlow.wordpress.com.

    “More Finely Focused” applies to any camera, any format, traditional film, or digital imaging. It is about making pictures, rather than the technology. I believe that it is more important to know where to stand, where to aim the camera, and how to compose the photograph, than to understand the deepest depths of Photoshop.

    57 exercises lead you through building up what I call the quiver of compositional tools, enabling you to more frequently get the emotional content into pictures that separate the admirable from the wonderful.

    “More Finely Focused” includes some material from “Finely Focused: Mechanics and Creativity for Large Format Photography.” This is a new book, however, with a new emphasis, and mostly new material. Owners of “Finely Focused” will benefit from the new book. It is a good idea to own both.

    “More Finely Focused” is a bargain at only $9.95. Similar E-Books cost $30 to $40. I would rather see it in the hands of more photographers, helping them make more satisfying images, and so I haves priced “More Finely Focused” to be affordable to almost all image-makers.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hi Bruce
    That Wordpress link went to a story about a hip replacement or suchness and thusness.
    through a glass darkly...

    Bruce,

    How do I get it without using paypill. I don't (and won't) use that service.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    As far as printing, you bought it, you own it. I don't even have a hard copy of my first book!! Enjoy.

    The Wordpress site has tabs at the top, one of which is labeled More Finely Focused Is Available, or some such. Click on it, and voila! The hip replacement is 3 weeks old, and the blog is how I keep friends informed.

    I have just started to read the book. I have read Bruce's first book and that was more for film cameras and darkrooms. This book is for any one that uses a camera be it film or digital. The exercise's in this book will make you a better photographer. Bruce, Bravo!! Great book I can't wait to finish it and start doing all the exercise's. I now have my camera with me.. My digital camera. What I learn with this camera I will put to use with my film camera's. I can't wait to see what my prints look like in a month or two.
