Our closing program for the month of October will be another great technical teaching presentation brought to us by a ‘Nikon Legend Behind the Lens’ and one of the top professionals in the country, Tony Sweet of Maryland. During this presentation, we will explore traditional and creative uses of various plug-ins, such as MacPhun, Topaz, Perfectly Clear, GoogleNik, Red Giant, AlienSkin,ect. There are a series of before and after images illustrating the wide range of creative interpretations available to us.

After successful careers as a jazz musician/ educator, and professional magician, our speaker settled on photography as his chosen means for personal expression. Beginning as a film photographer, he has become facile in image editing software and plug-ins and is an in-demand speaker throughout the United States and Canada on creativity in the digital age. Tony and his partner Susan Milestone conduct Visual Artistry photography location workshops in the United States, Canada, and Iceland, as well as an annual Visual Artistry Creativity Seminar series. A staff instructor on betterphoto.com, a world leader in online photography instruction, Tony also maintains an active speaking schedule to photography organizations, industry trade shows and at Professional Photographers Association schools across the continental United States and Canada. His photography is published worldwide in every medium and is represented by Getty Images. His iPhone photography is represented by Aurora Photos Tony’s images are also used by Nikon, MacPhun, Singh Ray, Alien Skin, Topaz, Lensbaby and others for national ad campaigns.
