5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Inspiring 23 Sept. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the fact that the book is like a collection of posts from ABM. It works perfectly with the blog's look and feel, and the style of their posts is also there.

The book isn't aimed at solving your creativity problems, but it works by giving you ideas and making you think of new ways of seeing photography, from a practical, non-nonsense point of view!

If you're looking for The Answer, it might disappoint you, but if you're looking for a book full of ideas, and visually attractive (and if you already follow ABM), then you won't be disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but I didn't like it 20 Feb. 2014
By Trev-R TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was quite disappointed by this book as I didn't think I gained much from it. Others may do but I guess it depends on what you want out of your photography. To be honest I thought more of the ideas in this book were suited to the iPhone photographer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Mess shows you how 17 Sept. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having followed Emma and Elsie's blog for some time, I was delighted to find they were writing a book. I preordered and Amazon delivered the book early, HOORAY!
A bright, good quality volume full of photographs and tips for capturing life on film. A pleasure to read and lend to (book-jealous) friends. I have bought a second copy for my sister and anticipate re-reading and referring to the tips and photo-inspiration within this book for years to come.

I look forward to their next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 5 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Such a gorgeous book! I've finished the kindle version and have just pre ordered the paper version. It's definitely one to keep and continue to use for ideas and inspiration. Great pictures and really helps to get a good understanding of what you can achieve with everyday photos without investing a huge sum of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiration 6 Jan. 2014
Format:Paperback
This is SO inspirational! I can't wait to try out all the ideas. I read the blog regularly so expected to enjoy it for a bit of a flick and see a couple of new ideas but it is completely fresh and unique to the blog. So happy I was gifted this and highly reccommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 18 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to this book, but its less so about how to take cool photos and more just a portfolio of their work, with a huge proportion of the book taken up with selfies. I think I'll head down to the book store and browse other photo idea books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its okay 9 Jan. 2014
By Dee Dee
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was bought as a present, I had a brief browse and my impression was, if you are new to photography you will get some ideas, but for someone with a bit of experience they may be dissappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas 1 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good book for the casual photographer. Nicely presented. Doesn't give much in the way of specific advice but fine for a starting point.
