Today brings you photography book #7 from my shelf, it's up and to the right of my chair where I can always reach it because I refer to it often.
#7 Tao of Photography: Unlock Your Creativity Using the Wisdom of the East - Tom Ang
Oftentimes, it's difficult to drag yourself out of a creative rut. Sometimes, you just want to sit back and gain some understanding about why you do what you do; see inside yourself a little bit; or maybe even just understand a little different approach to looking at things. If any of this sounds right, then this book will suit you just fine. Learn to embrace your creativity instead of fighting it. With 135 photographs included in its 144 pages, there is plenty of visual stimulation to make this an easy read. Pick it up and put it down as many times as you want, it's as if you can start anywhere and read a couple pages and glean important creative strategies that you had inside you all of the time, but maybe just failed to recognize.
