From the Back Cover
"Nothing is more valuable to a photographer than a great creative Idea -- and Inspired Photography has hundreds of them. If you're looking for a good dose of inspiration or some new visual paths, this book will provide plenty of both."
-- Jeff Wignall, author of The Joy of Digital Photography
"Whether you are an early-career photographer seeking to take your work to the next level, or a seasoned professional who's gotten stuck in a rut, Inspired Photography is for you. It's a terrific read full of great ideas to get your creative juices flowing."
-- Jack Hollingsworth, Top-selling commercial photographer, social media influencer and speaker
"Inspired Photography has three things going for it: provocative images, stimulating ideas, and useful tips for getting out of a creative rut. I especially like the book's approach to inspiration. Great artists don't wait for inspiration to strike--they put themselves in situations that foster creativity. Where to find such situations? This book is chock-full of suggestions. Don't expect to find f-stops, shutter speeds, or Photoshop lessons here. The authors are dedicated to helping you unleash the most important piece of photographic equipment you own--your mind."
--David Weintraub, Instructor, School of Journalism and Mass Communications, University of South Carolina

This is without a doubt a great book, but I was not prepared for EVERY PHOTO to be in black and white. Kinda took the wind outta my sails, but only temporarily. It's probably a mixed blessing to show me something about MYSELF. I learned (after sighing in disappointment) that I am more motivated by COLOR examples. The picture examples given with each assignment are quite good, but lacked the WOW factor that color could have given to really add fuel to the creative fire. But as they say, "that's just ME."
This book was written to INSPIRE, so pay attention to the ideas and suggestions in these pages. They WILL stir your creativity.
I almost gave it 3 stars because of my own personal preference for !!!COLOR!!! but that would have been a bit harsh so I gave it 4 stars.
Get this book. The ideas WILL indeed inspire.
The ideas in the book are great and they do cover a wide range, but don't look at this book for fantastic colorful high-quality images that would blow you away (like the cover suggests) - images are great, but they are not given justice in this book.
The presentation of each idea is straight forward offering the suggested source of inspiration without a lot of unnecessary flourish but then it goes a step further in showing a few ways in which that idea could actually be utilized...quite handy in my opinion. A great tool to add to any photographer's bag of tricks....from the beginner to the professional there is something for everyone in here.
Photography is something that has always interested me. I marvel at how well some people are able to create these amazing photographs with their cameras. I wondered what their secret was. This book reveals some of those secrets. The book is structured in many sections, which is great if you just want some creative ideas on certain things. I love outdoor pictures and reread the "The Great Outdoors" section a few times. This book has creative ideas for all types of picture takers, from the expert to the just learning. Its many sections make it not so overwhelming.
If you love to take pictures but seem to lack the creativity others have, you will love this book. If you are a great photographer, you will enjoy a new perspective to different shots. Everyone will enjoy the beautiful photographs. If you have a camera enthusist in your family, get them a copy too.
Recommended reading for professionals in the trade as well as the everyday photographer. Everyone needs a little inspiration from time to time and this book is certainly more than enough to give you that nudge in the right direction.
