Some Of The Fantastic Photo Techniques You Will Receive

When you sign up for my free course!

The Simplest Tip

Secret 1: There’s a really simple photography tip that will improve your photos 10 fold instantly. You don’t even need any fancy equipment or settings! It’s so simple and so effective, it’s my first tip. You’ll receive this immediately upon entering your email above.

Improving Clarity

Secret 2: When zooming in on Point and Shoot cameras, your image can sometimes look all blurry and grainy. In this better photo tip, I tell you why, and how you can use a different zoom to get a crisp, clear image.

Composition Secrets

Secret 3: This tip, used all the time by professionals, results in a pleasing, nicely balanced photo. I discuss what it is, and how incredibly easy it is to use in your own photos.

Secrets for Children

Secret 4: We all love photos of kids! They have such wonderful faces, and usually love to be in front of the camera. Unlike us adults who tend to shy away from cameras! But children can also be unpredictable, and for that you need some special skills as a photographer.

Always A Great Shot

Secret 5: I know I keep saying it, but this is another tip (only available with digital cameras) that ensures you will always walk away from a party or gathering with some perfect shots. This beautifully simple photography tip is the main reason why I love shooting with digital.

Stop The Delay!

Secret 6: Sick of the wait between when you press the shutter and when the shot is taken? It’s called shutter delay and is caused by your camera needing to focus on your subject. Guess what? The delay can be eliminated! Now my subjects haven’t moved out of frame before the shot is taken.

No Jargon - Use ANY Camera!

I've avoided using technical jargon in my courses and ebooks, so you'll get amazing insights; even if you're new to photography. And when I use a term that not everyone would know, I link to a separate article that fully explains the term.

And you can use your current camera! My techniques work for Point and Shoot, Bridge and DSLR cameras!

Never Leave The House Without

Secret 7: It’s a tripod. I know what you’re giong to say. They’re bulky and clumsy and get in the way of a great shot. However, what I’ll tell you in this tip will change your outlook entirely.

Enhance The Creativity

Secret 8: This is another really simple tip that’s extremely effective and will make your otherwise boring images really stand out!

Flash During The Day

Secret 9: Flash isn’t just for night time. When I first discovered this simple photographic tip for daylight photography, I almost fell out of my chair! A flash helps to eliminate dark shadows on your subject. A picture with less shadows looks much better than one with dark subjects you can’t see.

Perfect Candle-Blowing Images

Secret 10: This secret tells you how to get the perfect shot for any action scene (like a child blowing out a candle). You won’t need to settle for the ‘too soon’ or ‘too late’ shot again.

Keep It Fresh

Secret 11: This camera tip will help keep your photographs fresh and interesting to you as well as your audience. And as a bonus, you’ll suddenly start seeing more than what meets the eye, and your skills as photographer will grow.

Look for Light

Secret 12: Photography is all about light. It’s the action of light hitting the image sensor at the back of the camera that creates our shots. So it makes sense to look at the light around you before you compose your image.

I have lots more to share!

Please don’t take me off the “secrets” list…I am loving this way of learning because I am able to go at my own pace. Besides, you are a splendid communicator!


I’m about half way thru your free course and this old retired guy feels like he fell out of a airplane with no parachute on and been free falling for years and all of a sudden I looked over my shoulder and “Behold” all of a sudden-out of nowhere I’ve got a parachute on! It’s mind blowing, the basics-how that makes a huge difference in a picture- Once I get thru this I’ll be signing up with some of the other courses - Tks again for the parachute!

David, I have learned so much about digital photography and about my Canon DSLR camera from you. I think you are the most unselfish pro in the industry. I purchased your Digital Photo Secrets course on DVD and love it. But I have learned a lot of other tips from your FREE advice in newsletters, articles, etc. Most writers charge for everything. They say it will be free, but then when you check in you get the hook. You give so much away, and I really appreciate you. I’m going on a photo safari in a couple of months, and I know my photos will be great because of all that I have learned from you. I’m so glad to be off AUTO, and that’s because you made the transition so simple. Thank you for everything!

Jerry Hissong

I’ve watched and enjoyed some of your lessons…looking forward to learning more because you are simply “AWESOME”!!!! Thanks so much for this offer.

Thank you David for the 21 tips, they are very helpful, practical and easy to understand. it was realy a super course


I have taken pictures for a while, but when I read the information from you I found out how much I didn’t know. Thanks


Hi David! Since I srarted to receive your tips, I can honestly say, that I’ve become a more accomplished photographer. Not the best! But am improving all the time, and I like nothing better than to take a flask of coffe and nibbles. I can spend all day taking photo’s, of anything and everythimg Thanks to you.

John Rose

I thank God for such an unselfish person as yourself. I didn’t know anything about digital photo until i signed up for for your e-mail. Now i am called to take pictures for the family, Churches and other events. I have been offered money but don’t feel i am worthy even thou i am told so. thank you so much


About David

My name is David Peterson and I have been teaching photographers all around the world since 2005.

My motto is "Help the world take better photos" and I plan to continue to do this by providing free photography tips on my website.

Unlike most other photography teachers, I realize that most people don't need to know the technical details of their camera to take a great shot. So my courses explain every technique in a non-technical way along with lots of examples.

It is my hope that on this website, I can help you come to that same realization too!

David Peterson.
