It also claims that most photos are taken with a pocket digital camera with a minority on a Digital SLR. Again this gives the book credibility as an "ideas" book.
It is grouped into sections that provide an easy flow but you can just as easily dip into random pages. The fact that the author is a graphic designer shows through in the clean crisp layouts.
Basically, this has got me into the habit of carrying my camera all the time and looking at everything with a creative eye. A very inspirational book.
For basic photographers only.
What I really got from this book was that browsing for ideas just isn't a good way of developing ideas. Much better to begin with concepts like brand, outcome and message and work from there, or else to explore a particular set of techniques -- portraiture, modelling, macro etc -- in depth and be inspired to produce something new.
Regrettably, it's now sitting on my shelf prompting the thought 'why did I ever buy that?' every time I see it.
Other reviwers have criticised it for 'just being a lot of Photoshop filters and tricks' but I got a LOT more out of it. Highly recommended!
