Video with Tony Sweet available
The video from our webinar with nature photographer and Nikon Legend Behind the Lens, Tony Sweet from 16-FEB-2021 is now available for you to enjoy.
We had a great session with a lot of interest and Tony was digging into many aspects of composition technique, how to isolate and to simplify to get the most out of your work.
He discussed many aspects of composition and took questions. The webinar should be providing you with both knowledge and inspiration, not only for beginning photographers, but also for the intermediate and advanced photographers in the community.

Webinar with Tony Sweet, Feb 16th 07:00 PM EST
Our third webinar with photographer and Nikon Legend Behind the Lens Tony Sweet will be held February 16th, 7:00 PM EST. A video recording will be available after the live event.
Tony's program will be Compelling Composition: Isolate and Simplify.
Many Nikonians will probably recall Tony from the interview in our very first podcast held back in June of 2005. Nikonians have also participated in his photography workshops throughout the years and read his books, and we are thrilled to have him back with us.

The program: Compelling Composition: Isolate and Simplify
The program will be a "tour de force" of compositional techniques and creative applications for greatest visual impact. The overriding concept is to learn to isolate and simplify the subject.
Among the topics discussed will be
- The power of perspectives
- The power of line in visual design
- Creating visual drama
- Using strong graphics to enhance visual interest and drama
It is the hope that this presentation increases the attendees' attention to detail in creating clean, direct and compelling compositions. Questions are encouraged throughout the presentation and at the end.
For more information on Tony and how to see the live event, or to access the webinar video recording, please see the webinar page.
