Photo Inspiration: Secrets Behind Stunning Images is a very informative book that goes beyond the technical aspects of photography.

The book is split into different aspects of photography, from abstract and architecture through to people and still life. Each photo is by a different photographer, and they all describe how they took the photo and why it is provoking.

Each double page spread consists of a photo and not only the technical photographic description, but also the creative aspect of the photo and the story behind how it came to be taken. We are also told a bit about the photographer, and how they used post processing in the image, or anything they think worth noting about it.

The people and documentary sections are especially interesting, as the photo information tells a story of the person in question's daily life and how the photographer came across them. Some of these are very moving, and add something to the story of the picture in question.

Put together from the archived images of 1X.com, a unique online photo gallery, the book features only images selected by professional curators for their stunning imagery.

Uniformly styled all the way through, the book is very easy to navigate, and is understandable to most levels of photographers, making it ideal for those looking to find inspiration through photos. A very interesting and knowledgeable read, although it does get quite technologically involved in places, this is not necessarily a bad thing.
