In quick response to viewing the DVDs, I would like to say WOW! (Visual Literacy Review)

To be more descriptive: Viewing Tony Sweet’s Visual Literacy DVDs was like reading a great book where you find yourself being unable to put-it-down and wind up reading the book cover-to-cover in one sitting. As for Tony s DVDs, I watched both In the Field and In the Studio DVDs in one sitting (I believe 4.5 hours worth).

To be more descriptive: Viewing Tony Sweet’s Visual Literacy DVDs was like reading a great book where you find yourself being unable to put-it-down and wind up reading the book cover-to-cover in one sitting. As for Tony s DVDs, I watched both In the Field and In the Studio DVDs in one sitting (I believe 4.5 hours worth). Simply phrased, I was that impressed with the DVDs and felt as if I was on a virtual workshop; and along for the ride. The quality of the DVDs are absolutely first class and amazing: From content, description of various locations, sound quality, subject matter, showing what you see in the subject and with the camera, multiple exposure creations, exposures, using various settings (i.e.: D.O.F. preview, etc.), use of equipment, showing final results and comparisons of using a filter (i.e.: Singh-Ray Vari-ND, etc.) or not, etc., etc. Everything was simply put together perfectly and captured Tony s enthusiasm, creativity and master talents not only as a photographer, but as an artist as well – especially as an impressionist. From being a fan of all of Tony s books, these DVDs simply take you on a virtual journey alongside Tony in-the-field and in-the-studio. I also enjoyed the introduction of the various filters and equipment that Tony uses: From in-the-field, to post work, and in-the-studio, to Singh-Ray, Lensbabies and having an infra-red dedicated camera Tony simply covered it all. Needless to say, I am very impressed and inspired. Thank you for sharing and creating the DVDs.
