That's kind of what this book is like. These photo projects are things Mr. Frost did to get his photographic juices flowing, so he decided to share them. The problem is, a lot of the projects he mentions aren't really projects. Shooting at first light, last light, in cloudy weather, etc, aren't so much projects as the basics of landscape photography. He also suggests trying old cameras, toy cameras and instant cameras. I'm thinking these suggestions won't be what most people had in mind as photo projects. So a one star deduction for that.
Now, he does have some good ideas in here. Creating a photo blog, using the internet to have a photo book published, shooting the changes in your hometown over time, etc. These are all good ideas to get you out of a rut. Add that to the fun writing style, and you've got a book that is worth your time and money.
explore the world of photography!
The only problem I have with it is that some of the ideas include you
buying more equipment, which in my case is out of the question, but non
the less, the idea is there for the future!
It also gives ideas of amazing places to shoot all over the world and
even on how to approach them, such a talking to people for portraits.
Im very pleased with the book so far, and think is very helpful
for people starting and those who want more things to do.
The projects are arranged alphabetically, rather than thematically (which I would have found more useful, actually). Also, there are very few projects in the crafting/artistic sense. These are more like photo challenges that push you to explore one aspect of photography, ranging from compositional challenges (grapic design, water, graffiti, color, shadows,etc...) and technical challenges (slow shutter speeds, low light, etc...).
I am looking forward to really stretching my photography skills with the inspiration this book provides.
Good: panorama, looking for graphical subjects, architecture, infrared, water
Meh: food photography, texture, weather, using med format like TLRs (ok for those with money to spend on processing, dealing with vintage cameras)
Bad: Lomography and actionsampler projects.
Summary: hit or miss. Some great stuff, some not-so-great. Interesting reading in some spots, utterly dull in others.
Well-organized, easy to understand without feeling dumbed down --- worth picking up and trying out.
