I just got off the plane and saw that I won second place Professional in National Audubon photo contest! Your DTS technique really brought life to this photo which I think really helped this photo won. Thank you! DTS is bringing a paradigm shift to the industry. Thank you for putting this course together! - D.
Hi Tin Man, Not a bad month so far... 3 images made it to the finals of an international photo awards, 5 images made it to the final round of Nature's Best photography Windland Smith Rice, and today I was notified that 2 images made it to the final 100 of African Geographic wildlife photographer of the year and 3 images made it to the final 100 of ... Thank you Tin Man - you sure did leave a dent on my work :) . by Y.
Hi Tin Man, Just had another photo published in the Editor's Choice of the latest Wildlife Photographic Magazine, my fourth in that magazine. They publish 5 photos in that section for each edition. You should be very proud - of the 4 in this edition, two were by folks who have taken your class. by T. S.
Hi Tin man, My best is that my photo was one of the 10 winners in the International Wildlife Comedy Awards, and my photo was published in Wall Street Journal print version, and I made top 250 at NANPA 2018. - M
I got an email that my photo was published by National Wildlife Federation Magazine! - K
Just saw that 5 photos from two photographers taking your class made it to Nat Geo top 100 of 2018! - D. A.
I love how DTS has absolutely improved my images. -N
I was just featured for Image of the Day on Nature Odyssey page. I used DTS steps for sure!! It has helped me so much! - E. S.
Thank you Tin Man! My experience with DTS has been evolutionary. In a short time I not only revamped my processing but completely rethought my whole process of photographing wildlife. To be recognized by ones peers is the ultimate compliment and while my accomplishments are relatively minor it has given me the confidence to continue down this path. Every day I strive to learn something...this is not hyperbole but a commitment to becoming the best I can be. -E. G.
I had two photos published in Wildlife Photographic, had three photos selected Top 100 in the annual NANPA photo contest and had them published in their Expressions Magazine. Those three photos have been among those featured in the slide show on the NANPA website home page. Also had one photo selected as Wildlife Image of the Day on Nature Odyssey. - T. S.
That was my first time entering a contest and I do believe DTS made this possible. I learned so much! I even learned Photoshop through DTS. I also entered my picture into Nature's Best Photography 2018 and was notified I had made it to the Semi-final Round. I do believe my success in the two contests are the result of this class and everyone who has taken the time to critique photos! Thank you all.- W.S.
I have two images that were picked up on IG and each received over 3,000 likes. DTS revolutionized my post processing and made me a far better editor than I could have ever hoped for. K. T. S.
My shot won Top 100 in the NANPA annual photo contest. - M. O.
I placed two images in the Windland Smith Rice this year. - M. B.
I made the semi finalist of GDT. - M. L.
Pretty proud to get over 1,000 likes on Instagram of my photo. That is a huge record for me. I did apply all DTS. - J. G.
I did get 760 on NANPA page for the landscape - used on light/dark tension and sharping. - C. B.
I have been accepted as a regular contributor to Australian Photography Magazine and my first article comes out in December. - R.Z.
My B&W back lit image received 600 likes and 40 comments on the NANPA FB site. All DTS tensions applied. The first image I processed with DTS was purchased by a children's book author for her upcoming book and was picked up by the local paper and featured on the cover page. Obviously I have much to learn about using the DTS workflow but so far so good. -J.W.
I’m thrilled to announce that photo I submitted to the Arizona Wildlife Views magazine annual photo contest has been selected for honorable mention! Yay! -L. M.
I had Feature post of the week on Fred Miranda Nature Forum, my first time! - B
Was lucky to be featured thread winner last week at Fred Miranda. -P. M.
The success of my students and the recognition they received brought me such joy I will be forever grateful. Right now, photographers who are taking my class include both seasoned professionals and amateurs, international award winners, grand prize winners of prestigious awards, and I have seen them winning national and international awards, and got publications in various magazines and media including Nat Geo top shot, and dominating social media sites with images that garnered huge number of likes and comments, thus bringing a huge awareness to the beauty of nature and the importance of conservation.
Have you ever felt frustrated to edit your photo for sharing in Facebook/Instagram, before you submit to a photo contest, or when an editor asked for your photos to print big?
Have you ever wondered if there is one ultimate secret Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom workflow tailored made for wildlife and bird photographers where you can turn your RAW files from start to finish (ready to submit to contest and post to any media) in less than FIVE 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 instantly 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 psychologists, 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 stacking (DTS). And it is $497.
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, including the most recent 2018 Wildlife Category Winner of Nature's Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International, where my photo of the fox family is currently in display at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington DC till September 2019, 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. For the first time ever in industry, based on theories in psychology, neural science and the biology of vision and visual cortex, I teach you how to use your eye and brain to analyze your own image differently. The steps in the workflow are unique, tailored to bring out the most in different situations to maximize visual impact, 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, the package 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 stacking(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.
This online video class 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.
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.
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 5 minutes, and the image will be ready for photo contest.
