This is a book about how to be within that five percent. Jim Krause brings you as close as any author will bring you to being innovative, to being daring, and to making your photos stand out against other people's photos. You get hundreds and hundreds of images as well as very copious explanatory text to walk you through exactly what avenues of creativity there are for situations in which you'd otherwise be stumped for ideas.
Your point of view, your technique, and your post processing of images will all be bolstered a *whole* lot by this book.
Another really unique thing about this book (as well as Krause's other books in this series) is that he doesn't have the annoying habit many authors have of sharing part of the secrets to success while keeping the other part to himself. One senses that Krause is telling you everything he knows. It's a form of honesty that most people will really appreciate.
People who already own Krause's older titles like _Photo Idea Index_ will already have a leg up in knowing that Krause believes in learning to see any given subject not in one, but in many, different ways. I almost lost my mind when I first looked at Photo Indea Index and saw the exercise in which Krause managed to show around 150 different points of view in the photography of a fork. A simple fork! Anyone who does that has bone-crushingly open vision. The same, more or less, applies in this book. A handful of people subjects are photographed in so many incredibly interesting ways that you can't help but to be impressed.
I actually went ahead and bought all three books in the series and I consider them to be endless layers of inspiration. It's impossible to overstate how much they are helping me to think outside the box.
That's the beauty of this series of books. It's inspiring, and while my style isn't the same as the authors, I really appreciate the excitement and love of the world that's shown in this entire series. There is no reason to be limited by the usual viewpoints or subjects---we just have to open up.
That's what this book does. Excellent!
