This book spent a good week or two on my cart while I was debating with myself wether I should get it or not. I finally make the decision that I should definitely buy it, I mean it was pretty cheap (yay to secondhand books!). I've been trying to find a good book or magazine that will inspire me and my photography for quite a while now. Sure there are plenty of them on the internet, but I prefer flipping through images than looking at them on my computer which I'll forget and delete sooner or later.
Thoughts on the book...
It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be (6"x8") but it is filled with beautiful photographs that was taken by two friends who lived 3191 miles apart (you can read more about them on their website). The concept of this book is brilliant: taking a picture every day before noon. The photographs are gorgeous, so many new ideas popped into my mind while I was studying the pictures, new angles, composition, colors, textures, everything. The layout is pretty interesting, it's nothing like anything I've seen before; a lot of negative space (which I don't mind) but some of the pictures are just too small. But overall, I'm glad I bought the book.
I find it so inspiring, a picture every morning of a whole year, that can't be easy! Who knows, maybe I'll give it a go (and probably fail, haha). If you're getting one of these, I'd say get a used book or just see the newer ones the site.
Do you have any recommendations on what book I should get next time?
