Synopsis: The workshop retraces the steps Oliver Klink 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.
Topics covered: Segment 1: You don’t need to be a fulltime photographer to make images “that sing”, Segment 2: Organizing data on the road and at home, Segment 3: I am not reproducing what I saw (Best tips to improve your post processing), Segment 4: I love images on my wall (The smell of the ink vs. the beautiful electronic display), Segment 5: I do it for fun (Making images of personal nature)
