Awaken Your Vision to Create Stunning Images Wherever You Are

Through accessible discussions and exercises, readers learn to use composition, available light, color, and point of view to create stunning photographs in any environment.

Photographers are born travelers. They’ll go any distance to capture the right light, beautiful landscapes, wildlife, and people. But exotic locales aren’t necessary for interesting photographs. Wonderful images are hiding almost everywhere; you just need to know how to find them.

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. 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.

Extremely Well Done Inspiration This is a book from the class of books which aim to improve the photographer rather than one dealing with the technology of photography. Perhaps the best known author along this line is Freeman Patterson who the authors here cite both as an expert in this area and an inspiration for them. These books, such as those I’ve cited and one other excellent one, ‘The Practice of Contemplative Photography: Seeing the World With Fresh Eyes’ teach you to see and once you see the striking image, recording it photographically is just a matter of steps.

The Head and the Heart Hundreds of books exist that explain how to take well exposed, well composed photos. What’s so special about this one? The authors, Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring, say that while knowledge (the head) of basic photographic techniques is important, it is the heart that is fundamental to the creative process as it is a tool of infinite exploration, perception, and expression in the field of play that is photography today.

Good for beginners Like most people I’ve been playing with photography most of my life. For the longest time I could not figure out what aperture and shutter speed could really do until I read Brian Petersons exposure book and I had that ah ha moment. That was was about ten years ago and I’ve always shot in manual mode ever since. Then I started learning about composition (Michael Freeman has great books on this) and what makes a great photo. My problem is getting my creative side to work, to look at a scene and see great shots.
