One would be better off looking at masters of the genre for inspiration.

I wish I had this book years ago Regardless you are a beginner or an experimented photographer, this book is a must have tool to get a lot better.I really liked the angle of not focusing on gear or photo technicalities, but rather on people, place, time, light, pattern and above all, your vision.Through very simple assignments all along the book, you will discover a better photographer in you.I wish I had this book years ago.Thank you Valérie!
