Flash Has A Bad Reputation!

It's not surprising when you see images like the one on the left! Your beautiful child looks like a demon posessed. And there's an ugly flash-shadow behind him.

It Doesn't Need To Be This Way!

I'll show you how to avoid the six most common flash problems (halos, wash outs, red-eye, glare, dark subject and dark backgrounds)

What This Course Will Teach You

You'll discover how to master your camera's flash (with techniques for both inbuilt and external flashes).

Don't Get Stung By Red Eye Again!

The best way to use a flash is to take a photo that doesn’t look like it was shot with a flash!

I'll show you how in this course.

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!

I've attended a few courses on photography including the on-line course. But none of it that gave me a straight and layman explanation until I received your secrets of photography. Even with the early few secrets, I have tried and got wonderful and meaningful images that I have been trying all these years. Thanks David for your brilliant and systematic approach.
