A Great Choice: Visual Literacy

Anyone looking for a DVD to help improve their nature photography cannot go wrong with this purchase. I will defiantly be buying some more from this collection by Master Photo Workshops.

Della M. Robinson – November 4, 2009

Tony is a true master of his craft and watching him in this video his passion for teaching photography is obvious. I have long wanted to attend one of his many workshops he does, but due to my location and money I have never had the opportunity to do so. This video is the next best things as he you get to see how he goes about his shots while listening to him tell you why he chooses to take a shot this way or with a certain lens over another.

He also goes into his equipment. Many books and help guides do this, but Tony does so in a way that you don’t feel like he is endorsing anything specific. He uses Nikon, but as a Canon user I felt I could get very nice shots with what I have now and ideas for pieces I might want to get later as funds allow.

The first part of disk 2 Tony shows us some of his earlier photos and the thought process behind them. His critique of them are invaluable and well worth the price of the DVD alone. It’s great to see someone you look up to in a field point out flaws they did. It’s like “Wow, he’s made the same mistakes as me. I have hope after all!” lol. Of course he also shows some of his newer stuff which is just breathtaking.
