Flowers are among the first subjects that all new photographers seek. When I first got into photography, the first thing I did was head to the local nature center to find some flowers to photograph. Flowers are colorful, they don t move and they don t mind being photographed. They are therefore an excellent way to learn about and experiment with lenses and filters, exposure, composition, and special photographic techniques and effects.

I have recently purchased two DVD's by Tony Sweet. The first was Tony Sweet's Visual Literacy: Photography Workshop. That two DVD package was very instructive especially the second DVD where he showed some of his photos and talked about what he learned in their taking. I thought that the first DVD about taking pictures in the Smokies dragged quite a bit. There was the opportunity to learn but it was slow going. This very latest DVD is excellent from a learning stand point. I am a fan of his so may be somewhat biased in my review. Last September I was in the San Juans of Colorado and had a fabulous time taking pictures of the Aspens while using Tony's "moving the camera vertically while taking the picture" technique. The pictures I got came out great and the effect is stunning. I learned this from some of his books as well as his DVDs. This latest DVD is about flowers and takes place in Longwood Gardens, PA. Having been there I can appreciate the photo opportunities there. If you like flower pictures and want to improve your technique this DVD is for YOU!! By the way, on this DVD Tony shows you how to get great flower pictures using an Iphone!!! Pretty impressive.

The video had some good tips but it had to much other stuff on it that just made it drag out, like how he edited with photoshop and his gallery. I was not interested it either and expected the video to have more on the tips and techniques used by professionals to take flower photography.

All the time spent on iPhone photography (ugh) was a waste. I wanted to learn flower photography, not how to use a cell phone camera. I have no idea what prompted Sweet to include it.

As another reviewer mentioned, I am weary of watching Sweet make in-camera multiple exposures. That ties the technique to a particular make of camera. This would be properly taught as a Photoshop technique -- the universal tool of serious photographers. Not to mention that one cannot make artistic decisions based on what one sees on that bitty camera LCD.

Sweet has lost me with this dud. There are much better flower photography seminars, books and DVDs available on the subject.

Not a big overall fan of this lastest presentation from Tony Sweet. While I did enjoy learning some new ideas, I found that about 25% of the video was dedicated to reviewing his personal flower portfolio, and 10% dedicated to taking pictures with an iPhone. I suspect he either wanted to show that you do not need a serious camera to begin making your own great pictures, or he was completely out of material to present.

Multiple exposure shots - while I feel it's a great technique to present, it's limited to the upper-end Nikon camera system. It would have been better to include how to proccess these types of shots in software for those who shoot Canon, for example.

Tony is an experienced teacher, and he does do a great job of getting your mind to "think" about the possibilities of image making, but I feel that he came up a bit short on this one.

I'll definitely wait and read the reviews of his next DVD before purchasing.

As a passionate flower photographer, I found this to be a gold mine. The objections about iPhone photography that was included in the video seems to me ludicrous; it was very minimal; plus it is becoming quite important for a lot of people. Having lots of flowers in our yard, I found myself stopping the video over and over again and going out to try out Tony's suggestions.
