I also think that the book could have been much more interesting with better editing. Some of the concepts are simply too basic to be a full spread (eg, two pages devoted to turning a photo upside down after you take it, literally -- don't get me wrong, a cute concept, but worth just a mention in a list of ideas, not a spread). The book is 240 pages, and it has a lot of lovely & delightful ideas, but it could have been 175 pages and been a MUCH stronger, tighter book.
Finally, and this point might be more controversial for the intense Elsie & Emma fans out there, but a vast majority of the photos with people in them feature the ladies themselves. They are very pretty ladies, and they love taking photos of themselves and do a great job of it, but with their success, I am disappointed that they did not feature a broader range of people and perhaps even show a bit of diversity (and I say that as the palest person I know). The book could be much more informative, not to mention more interesting to read, with a greater range of subjects. Examples: I understand that the ladies do not have children at this point (I don't, either), but, really? Not even one spread on ideas for photographing children? Or maybe I missed it? Or what about working with larger groups of people? Or on a busy city street? Or even just featuring different models to highlight the points of the book, perhaps even some people of color? And, most oddly to me, they dedicate the book to their grandparents and yet I am not sure a single person over the age of 30 is featured in the book. I understand that you cannot cover everything, but the book definitely became repetitive by being so focused on them. (And, yes, I also understand that using other people can involve an expense if you do not have willing friends/family, but the ladies have been very successful and should know to build it into their contracts if they do not want to cover the expense themselves.)
I say great effort for a first book, and it is very attractive, but if they want to reach a broader audience and achieve long-term book success, they will need to expand beyond their limited personal space. This book really is just an extension of their website. I understand wanting to write what you know, but they have a thriving business doing that already (ie, ABM). They should certainly be proud of the book, and I know that you cannot please everyone -- but, really, I am hoping that these talented ladies think bigger in their book future!
For a "chapter" / quick-tip style photography book, I strongly prefer the Digital Photography books by Scott Kelby - they're long on practical camera advice, short on selfies, which is pretty much the inverse of this book.
Cute ideas, fun short projects, but maybe not for someone who is looking for more instruction to help develop their photography skills. Definitely targeted towards older teens/early adults. Still, a great, fun way to spark your creativity
The pictures are bright and dynamic. It's simple to understand a beautiful to look at. This will definitely be a book that I keep looking through for inspo throughout the year. As someone who owns and uses a DSLR, I do wish that I had more technical advice.
LOVE this book. Love these girls. I may even have some outfit inspo as well!
