- In den letzten Jahren wurde das Augenmerk der meisten Fotolehrbücher darauf gelegt, den Leser umfassend und auf allen Gebieten mit den neuen Techniken der digitalen Fotografie und Bildbearbeitungsprogramme vertraut zu machen. Dabei trat die Bildgestaltung in den Hintergrund. In dieser zweiten Auflage des erfolgreichen Lehrbuchs von Torsten Andreas Hoffmann gilt die Aufmerksamkeit nun wieder der Gestaltung guter Schwarzweißfotografie. Dabei wird die Technik der digitalen Fotografie so mit einbezogen, dass sie für den Leser einfach zu verstehen und gut praktisch umzusetzen ist.
Im wesentlichen geht dieses Lehrbuch aber wieder zurück zu inhaltlichen und gestalterischen Aspekten anspruchsvoller Fotografie. Dabei werden verschiedene inhaltliche Themen wie Architekturfotografie, Street Photography, surreale Fotografie oder Menschendarstellung mit kleinen Einblicken in die Fotogeschichte und die Gegenwartsfotografie behandelt.
Im zweiten Teil wird eine ausführliche Betrachtung verschiedenster Gesetze der Bildsprache wie Goldener Schnitt, Dreieckskomposition, etc. vorgenommen.
Im dritten Teil schneidet Hoffmann "wie mit der Machete" durch den Dschungel Photoshop und macht es dem Leser so einfach wie in keinem anderen Lehrbuch, zu technischen Top-Ergebnissen in Schwarzweiß zu kommen.

Torsten A. Hoffmann: Composer of Man and Space October 29, 2021 - January 15, 2022 Hoffmann captures people in their urban and rural living space in a fascinating and creative composition. Whether it is the integration in visual mirror formations or the simple but well-thought-out street scene, the human being is at the center of his observations.

His work can be seen in over 20 illustrated books, numerous exhibitions and publications.
