23330420-1_u_2I was unaware that Composition 摄影构图 2版 Basics Photography: Composition 2nd Edition had already been published over a year ago in Chinese. Published by the China Youth Press it has ISBN 978-7-5153-1849-3. Again thanks to all the origial contributors – I’m proud to have this book available to such a large readership but from some of the reviews on it seems the translation is not the best, which is a great shame.

Recently published by Compass books, a Persian translation of my Basics Photography: Composition. Full details here. Again the layout and some photographs have been reworked for the Iranian market – though I’m assured the text remains as originally written.  Translation is by Ismail Abbasi and Ehsan Ghanbarifard. I understand a Farsi version of Basics Photography: Exposure is in the pipeline.
