The Expressive Camera Series

Introducing The Expressive Camera Series, a growing collection of educational and inspiring photography books written by Braddley Addams. Although only three volumes are shown, more are on the way that address topics such as landscape and nature photography and expressive and creative camerawork. Each subsequent release promises a blend of foundational principles, advanced techniques, and the artful philosophy of photography, ensuring a comprehensive and illuminating learning experience.

Interestingly, the series takes an unconventional route in its release sequence. Despite being labeled as Volume 2, On LEARNING PHOTOGRAPHY is the first of the series to make an appearance. Volume 1: On PHOTOGRAPHY ESSENTIALS and Volume 3: On MAKING PHOTOGRAPHS are expected in early 2024.
