Inspired by Tony Sweet

Tony Sweet. When I first began this photography adventure I bought a book. This book had the most wonderful images I believe I had ever seen. I read and re-read that book several times. The book was “Fine Art Flower Photography” by Tony Sweet.

It didn’t take long for me to discover Tony had two additional books that I could add to my personal library. “Fine Art Nature Photography” and “Water, Ice, and Fog” were quickly added to my ever expanding collection of photography books. And, it is a personal goal of mine to participate in a Tony Sweet Workshop next spring; perhaps in the Smoky Mountains. Can you tell I’m a big Tony Sweet fan?

And, it happens he is a jazz musician. Gotta love musicians who are photographers. Right? 🙂


This “Sweet” inspired image was nearly deleted. Horrors!

Over this past weekend I’ve been trying to free up memory on my hard drive so I’ve been deleting a large number of shots. The image was taken back in the spring and I’m glad I revisited the image over this weekend.

OK, being honest, the image probably was an accident and not planned like Tony Sweet would do. But, I think this is one of those “happy accidents” and I’m glad I revisited it!

Why don’t you visit Tony’s site and see why I admire his work and get inspiration from him.

He has a new book coming out in January. Can’t wait!!!

    Great image, Sue! I agree Tony is an awesome photographer and very cool guy! He and I are friends….and colleagues. I teach creative macro workshops and “impressionistic flower photography” techniques…similar to Tony. Feel free to check out my website, . Happy shooting! 🙂

    Thank you so very much for the visit and comments. After quickly visiting your site, I find I am curious about your book, “The Healing Power of Nature,” and am looking forward to exploring your site and work a little more completely.

    Thanks for the mention of the book…hadn’t seen or heard of it before.

    Sue, you should go to Best Buy and buy an external hard drive. You can get “mega” storage for a reasonable price these days.

    You may already have one, but just in case thought I would suggest this.

    Tony Sweet’s photography is wonderful. I also have a few of his books and have enjoyed them very much.

    Interestingly enough, I have TWO external hard drives. I faithfully back up everything on a hard drive and try to put my favorites on DVD’s. I keep far too much on my lap top though and every once in a while just have to force myself to delete a lot of the “questionable” images, keeping only my favorites on the laptop. 🙂
