Discover the things around you through the eye of your cameraPhoto Idea Index: Things is a photography book unlike any other. Rather than focusing on the "how to" aspects of digital photography, author Jim Krause focuses on the "what if" aspects. You'll learn how to use your camera to explore the world around you from different perspectives and how to capture awe-inspiring digital images. For inspiration, you'll find a vast assortment of photos of household objects, plants, animals, machines, architectural details, treasure and trash. Krause shares his shooting techniques—both on-site and post-shooting digital treatments—so you can train your eyes to look for situations that will allow you to capture shots and create remarkable compositions.
