Co-authored by Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring,   Extraordinary Everyday Photography will help you  search beyond the surface to find the unexpected wherever you are, be it a downtown street, a local park, or your own front lawn. Authors Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring encourage amateur photographers to slow down, open their eyes, and respond to what they see to create compelling images that aren’t overworked. Through accessible discussions and exercises, readers learn to use composition, available light, color, and point of view to create stunning photographs in any environment. Inspiring photo examples from the authors, taken with DSLRs, compact digital cameras, and even iPhones, show that it is the photographer’s eye and creative vision–not the gear–that make a great image.

What people are saying:

“Your book is truly extraordinary! It’s not another how to do it book. It is about you talking to the reader and sharing what you saw and how and why you took the image in way that you did. It’s very personal and very well written. The pictures with the variety of subject matter are lovely. If ever I had a desire to create a photography book and the talent to do so ,which I have neither, that is the book I would have created.” Elaine B.
