Extraordinary Everyday Photography

Learn how to see the extraordinary in the ordinary, aka the everyday things, in the world around you. Photographs exist just about everywhere, if you are open to seeing them! Learn how to make a great picture of ordinary subjects. Using a visual presentation based on our latest book, "Extraordinary Everyday Photography", we'll have challenging yet fun visual assignments designed to help expand your vision and your thinking. We'll have several locations we'll use for this in and around Santa Rosa, our 'backyard'. Designed for all skill levels. Join Brenda Tharp and Jed Manwaring for this fun and intensive learning experience and get a copy of our latest book included in the price! SOLD OUT.

I learn so much from Brenda and Jed about seeing creatively when I take a class with them.
