Turning your Travel photography into Fine Art Images. Get READY!

What is this workshop about? Klink was educated as a physicist and photographer. 15 years ago, he jumped off the HighTech career to focus full time on fine art photography and teaching his passion to avid photographers. This workshop retraces the steps he took to progress from an avid travel photographer to one who delivers meaningful messages thru storytelling and compelling images. Klink will discuss his “breakthroughs”, the technical choices he made to be recognized as one of the best printmakers, the power of making images of personal nature, working on “hero shots” versus a longterm project, how “compelling and different the world of the art is” and be able to embrace it. The format is lecture style, with Q&A at the end of each segments.

This is an online class, taught thru zoom software.

Segment 1: You don’t need to be a fulltime photographer to make images “that sing”
- Inspiration
- Types of photography trips (workshop, exploration, family trips)
- Planning a trip (research, scouting, equipment, redundancy vs. weight)
- On site photography (landscape, street, night, wildlife)
- Do you really want to return home with “travel images”?
- The benefits of NOT being a fulltime photographer

Segment 2: I am too busy when I return from a trip
- Organizing data on the road and at home
- Best practices to “find and not loose stuff”
- The pitfalls of data management (Oliver manages over 200TB!) and how to overcome them
- “Spring data cleaning” or should I focus on ...

Segment 3: I am not reproducing what I saw
- Photography as a 2D medium (vs. capturing in a 3D environment)
- Best tips to improve your post processing
- And more tips to make your images “sing”
- Before and After images, and what was done to accomplish the results

Segment 4: I love images on my wall
- The smell of the ink vs. the beautiful electronic display
- The fear of printing and how to overcome it
- The dos when you print (very few don’ts when you get into it!)
- What makes an acceptable, good, mind blowing print

Segment 5: I do it for fun
- I wish more people would see my work
- Turning my hobby into a retirement occupation
- Breakthroughs
- Making images of personal nature

All the information delivered are based on practical examples, trials and errors, “pulling hair”, sleepless nights thinking about what I just did (or didn’t do), interactions with hundreds of avid photographers that have traveled with me around the world or attended workshops at my studio, industry experts/colleagues/mentors who helped me overcome “the lows of making art” and encouraged me when they saw “the highs”, emotional reactions of viewers, and many more sources (with some google searches).
