Photography Question

Tony Sweet Fine Art Course

Has anyone taken the Tony Sweet course in Fine Art Flower Photography? What did you think? Was it work the price and time? I really like flower and nature photography and my images certainly show my lack of skill. Thank you.

Laurie M. Elmer   I took the course. It's the course to take to really push your skills. You can't get away with sloppy technique when shooting flowers. Whenever I feel like I'm getting out of shape, photographically speaking, I shoot flowers. It's like a pianist playing scales. Tony's class helps you to "see" every inch of the frame, forces you to make concious decisions about DOF, and introduces you to several fun and creative techniques that can be applied to any subject. For me, I'd have to say his course pushed me to the "next level".

Just be prepared for a sore back. Shooting flowers is more physically demanding than you might think!
