“Amazing Photography” inspires in many ways

Recently I was sent a copy of the “Amazing Photography” book from Xpozer. I sat down with a cup of tea, relaxed and prepared myself to be inspired. The Amazing Photography book has many inspirational images, of course. It is about amazing photography. There are images from all over the world, and even out-of-this-world images from astronaut Andre’ Kuipers. You’ll find images of people, places and even a few mundane things that will make you want to visit the locations or just get your own camera out and explore the places that are in your area. You’ll be inspired to create and push yourself to do better.
