NOTE: This event is for guest registration and there is a $10.00 fee payable to attend. Members, please log in and register in the members registration.
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, the use of 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, compelling compositions.
Coming from an artistic background as a professional jazz artist and professional close up magician (sleight of hand artist), Tony has always sought creative, deeply personal endeavors.
The transition from jazz artist to nature photographer was a seamless transition as both require an improvisational nature and an ability to adapt to quickly changing conditions.
Tony was named as a Nikon Legend Behind the Lens and has been published worldwide for over 35 years. He has authored 8 books, contributing to many others, co-produced an educational DVD series, and teaches and lectures throughout the US, Canada, Iceland, and Cuba.
