Another blog-turned-book, "A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book" by sister blogger duo Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman is loaded with great tips for taking more visually interesting photographs using a digital SLR camera or an iPhone. The book is divided into eight sections: Capture Your Favorite People; Add Backdrops and Props; Use Beautiful Lighting; Get Creative; Get Inspired; Capture Yourself; Challenge Yourself; and Show Off Your Photos, with each subsection accompanied by example photos taken by the authors themselves or by their friends and other family. A light, easy read and a great how-to guide to taking better pictures.

If you love their blog of the same name, you definitely love this book! It's filled with fun and easy photo ideas for both non-professional and professional photographers.

If you love taking photos and need inspiration, I highly recommend reading this book, or just browsing through the pretty pictures.
