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. Photographers should slow down, open their eyes, and respond to what they see to create compelling images that aren’t overworked. Learn to use composition, available light, color, and point of view to create stunning photographs in any environment. It is the photographer’s eye and creative vision–not the gear–that make a great image.
