Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this as a companion to the first volume 'Things'. Like the first, it is full of ideas. The photos are probably across the globe, in many different situations and few are repetitive.

Definitely a worthwhile purchase to browse for most photographers.

Recommended.

A really good book, I have just taken up photography and this has given me lots of ideas to try. There is minimum writing just giving the bare bones of the idea behind the photo. Very inspirational !

Loads of Ideas 6 July 2011
By Mark Thane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book is chock full of neat ideas. I'm always on the lookout for more things to take pictures of and this book gets me going. I appreciate the fact that the pictures aren't all technically "perfect" which gives me inspiration because I realize that I don't need expensive equipment and lighting to produce interesting photographs of everyday things.

Jim Krause is a GENIUS! 9 Feb. 2011
By Anita Pollock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have every book written by this guy. One of his books, Design Ideas Index, was required reading for a graphic design course and I read it cover to cover in the first week because not only is the content good but it is displayed in an amazingly lighthearted and no-nonsence kind of way. These books (things, people, and places) in addition to the Photo Idea Index are more of the same great writing that made me so happy last term! Great job and a must for just starting out and for the experienced to switch it up!

Inspiration found 11 May 2012
By JrBenito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book will present you a plenty of picture and very little explanation about how they was achieved. The idea is not to teach you how to shoot good photography but instead it will show you how mundane things like a light bulb can lead to very powerful images if you just try, dress the scene and use your imagination.

I have the paper and kindle versions... Kindle version is very useful for use in the smartphone while on the road. It is always with you.
Very nice! 16 Feb. 2012

There are a lot of photos, ideas, and inspiration in this book. This book gives me so many of my own ideas. I can't wait to get started working on my own project!!

5 for the book....3 for the quality of the one Amazon sent me. 26 July 2011
By Gary in Sun City, AZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First, the book is terrific. Packed with plenty of creative ideas on taking pictures of all kinds of sometimes hardly noticed objects all around us. It really has me thinking and wanting to try some new things, new approaches. Full page examples are followed by smaller versions of the photos with explanations of the why & how. So I highly recommend this book. Now, to the other, my 3 rating. Amazon sent me a book probably never read, but the cover has dents and scratches and does not look new at all. Perhaps it had been returned, or was handled a lot. Amazon disappointed me here in this issue. I will keep the book, the price was good, and I can live with it.
