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.

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!

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.

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!!
