After struggling for ten years on post-processing, I created a completely new workflow to get super sharp and noise-less photos from RAW files. The technique borrows ideas from master oil painters such as Leonardo Da Vinci, by creating subtle local gradients to instantly grab the attention of the viewers and bring them to the "hook" of the photo, so that the images have maximum emotional impact for social media posting, contest and publication. 

The workflow is simple yet powerful. Even if you have never learned Photoshop, you can master the technique quickly. 

Hundreds of students have taken this course. This workflow has enabled them to win awards and got published, including:

Grand Prize, category wins and highly honored in Nature's Best Photography Windland Smith Rice, 

Category wins and commended in Wildlife Photographer of The Year,

Publication in National Geographic, 

Top prizes in Audubon, 

Top prizes in NANPA, 

Top prizes in National Wildlife Federation,

Top prizes in Share The View International Contest,

Cover of Wild Planet Photo Magazines, etc. 

So don't wait if you want to learn one of the best editing techniques for bird, wildlife and nature photography and transform your photos.

What you will get:

Lifetime access (You can take it at your own pace) of 11 modules of video tutorials. You can download the videos to your computer or stream it online.

Lifetime access to an exclusive Facebook group membership where members can post their edited photos for critiques.

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.

Story of how I discovered Dynamic Tension Stacking:

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. 

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.

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.

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.
