Digital Workflow 2.0: How to Win Photo Contests, Get Published, and Make Your Digital Photos Go Viral...Without Spending Hours Editing Them
Frustrated about not knowing how to best edit your photos before submitting to a contest?
Have you ever wondered if there is an Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom workflow where you can work on your wildlife and bird RAW files from start to finish (ready to submit to contest and post to any media) in less than seven minutes while getting double or triple the VISUAL IMPACT without making the image look over-processed/unnatural?
Is there a workflow that can transform your images so that viewers CANNOT look away, while still allowing your images to remain truthful to the original moment?
Well, after years and years of picking the brains of top photographers in bird, wildlife, portrait, and landscapes, as well as grandmaster painters, visual artists, and even top neuroscientists, and spending hundreds if not thousands of hours trying different methods, I finally had a breakthrough, and found the ONE framework that no one has told you about before: a brand new framework called dynamic tension siege (DTS). I have tested and retested it for a whole year to make sure it really works.
This workflow has allowed me to win numerous international and national awards, exhibit internationally, make magazine covers, feature in Nature's Best Photography, Smithsonian Earth, Google/Nik Softwares, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, NANPA, and Wild Planet Photography Magazine, and be selected as one of the "Top 10 Wildlife Photographers to Follow" by both 500px and Xposr UK. You can check out my recent photos at instagram.com/tinmanlee.
As the name suggests, the framework is dynamic. I teach you how to use your eye and brain to analyze your own image differently. The steps in the workflow will be unique, tailored to bring out the most in different situations, but they are also very easy to understand and implement. I myself was shocked at how easy it was, and wondered why no one had taught me this all these years.
As a new feature, subscription also includes an exclusive Facebook group membership ($297 value bonus) where members can post their edited photos. Members will hold each other accountable as a community to support each other. I will drop by from time to time to provide guidance.
As an extra bonus, you receive my secret workflow on…yes, you guessed right, (1) BACKLIT photos and (2) black-and-white photos! These techniques enabled my photos to reach their full potential, win awards, and get published on magazine covers!!! These two chapters alone are a $197 value each!
Dynamic tension siege (DTS) is the ultimate method to edit your RAW files to bring out the most visual impact without making the image unnatural/over-processed. The idea is based on my extensive research, including over $50,000 of investment and hundreds of hours of learning from the tutorials of grandmaster photographers in wildlife, landscapes, and portrait, as well as artificial intelligence scientists and neuroscientists.
Currently, I am providing my limited time offer for only $194 (regular price $497) because the bonus sessions on black-and-whites and backlighting are still in preparation (while the main content is ready).
You can also see my original series here. But bear in mind that the new version is completely different and much more powerful. It contains the exact techniques I have discovered and used to consistently evoke emotion of the viewers.
The package contains more than 6.5 hours of high-definition 1080p videos in 11 chapters. The videos can be viewed via online streaming, or downloaded (no DVD). This also includes PDFs of class notes.
30-day money back guarantee. No question asked. Try it. If you do not find it useful, I am happy to refund you, and you can EVEN KEEP THE VIDEOS!
DISCLAIMER: Results vary. Since I don't know you personally and I don't know your work ethic, I cannot guarantee your results. I am just teaching the exact step-by-step procedure that works for me.
Below is the info for the original series. The new series will be available Dec 31, 2017.
Do you want to know the best techniques for Lightroom and Photoshop, to optimize your wildlife photos before you submit to a contest?
In this video tutorial, I will share with you my experience (as a contest participant and later as a judge) in post-processing, and what I have learned over the years, which enabled me to evoke emotions in viewers and win numerous international awards. These include the grand prize of the prestigious Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International, top prize in the NANPA Showcase (NANPA Top 10 and Expressions magazine cover), several highly honored awards in Nature's Best Windland Smith Rice International in bird, polar wildlife, and animal antics categories, two covers of Nature's Best Photography magazine, and selection as the 2016 June cover of Alaska Magazine, among other accolades.
“At first, I thought this video was irrelevant for me because I didn’t plan to enter any photo contests. But the video allowed me to look at photos through the eyes of a contest judge, which helped me distinguish the great photos from the good ones. And it gave me better ways to sharpen and reduce noise using Nik and adjustment layers. I have recommended it to many people who want to get the most out of post-processing.”
“Not only did I learn great techniques on sharpening and denoising, but the part of how to see, and the work with shadow and highlight alone is worth it.”
You can also email me, and I can connect you with customers who have purchased my product to give you honest feedback.

Many of the books on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop are far too complicated and take too long to read. I believe in the 80-20 rule, where, with a few easy steps, laymen can achieve good image quality and win photo contests. In this video, I will go through my step-by-step process of editing photos, from initial edits all the way through to submitting to photo contests or posting on social media. I will talk about the story behind the photo, why I chose such a composition, the critical mistakes one makes when they submit to photo contests, and how I deal with color, ultimate sharpening, highlight, shadows, and noise removal.
Included in this purchase:
1. Seven high-def 1080p Videos, 3 hours 18 minutes total (streaming and download, no DVD)
2. PDF of the class notes, including links,
3. PDF of 5 Elements of Wildlife Photography
I have seen many great photos from photographers who have great potential to win contests and move people, if only they knew a few tricks in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to unleash the power hidden in their RAW photo files. My goal is that, after this tutorial, you can edit your photo from start to finish within 15 minutes, and the image will be ready for photo contest.
