Falkland Islands Video Slideshow by Tin Man Photography

In Search Of The Golden Teardrop
For the last hundred years, civilization has caused massive destruction of the wilderness and its wildlife. One place on earth, however, is still untouched—the Falkland Islands. Animals there are not only in abundance, but they also remain fearless and curious about humans, and will come so close as to sometimes untie our shoelaces. What these animals need are photographers who can capture their beauty and soulfulness in photographs, and speak for them to bring about awareness and protection.
When Tin Man, a regular guy with a regular job, was given a chance to visit the Falklands with his parents for two weeks, what could have been the vacation of a lifetime turned into a disaster, with injuries and other mishaps that threatened their safety and stopped them from getting to where they wanted to be. This could have ruined everything, but instead became an opportunity for growth and innovation.
To create stellar images, Tin Man and his parents would have to battle dangerous terrain, wind and sandstorms, lack of food, sickness, limited timelines, cancelled flights, and huge mistakes in planning.Tin Man dedicated himself to working through these challenges, but there was no guarantee he would be successful.
Will he overcome, or come home empty-handed?
20 Mistakes You Should Avoid When Photographing the Falkland Islands
Are you planning to go to the Falkland Islands but are nervous about finding the best secret photography spots on the islands?
This PDF guide shows you the secret spots and the strategy and technique to create the photos of a lifetime.
Despite a series of mishaps during his two-week trip to the Falkland Islands with his parents, I still managed to capture a portfolio of my favorite photos ever, including three that were selected for the second round of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition organized by BBC and the Natural History Museum of London (two penguin photos and one albatross photo).
In this guide, I will go over the mistakes I had made during his trip, and describe what I will do if I ever goes to the Falklands again. This guide may save you a lot of headache and a lot of money in bad planning, and give you great ideas for capturing world-class photos in a short period of time. Some of the topics include:
- Pros and cons of joining a photography workshop and going on your own.
- Pros and cons of land-based tours and cruises.
- What are the must see spots, and why? Saunders Island? Carcass Island?
- What is the biggest secret of SNVP?
- What are the most important things to pay attention to when flying to Chile and the Falkland Islands, in terms of visas?
- What is the best camera gear?

In this video tutorial, I will share with you my experience (as a contest participant and later as a judge) in post-processing I have learned over the years , which enabled me to invoke emotions in viewers and win numerous international awards, including the grand prize of the prestigious Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International, top prize in NANPA Showcase (NANPA Top 10 and Expressions magazine cover), several highly honored awards in Nature's Best Windland Smith Rice International in bird, polar wildlife and animal antics categories, featured in two covers of Nature's Best Photography magazine and chosen as the 2016 June cover of the Alaska Magazine, among other recognition.
“At first, I thought this video is irrelevant from me because I didn’t plan to enter any photo contests. But the video allows me to look at photos through the eyes of a contest judge, which helps me pick the great photos from the good ones. And it gave me better ways to sharpen and to reduce noise using Nik and adjustment layers. I already have recommended it to people who want to get the most out of post-processing.”
“Not only did I learn great techniques on sharpening and denoising, the part of how to see, and the work with shadow and highlight alone is worth it.”

Many of the books on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop are far too complicated and take too long to read. I believe in the 80-20 rule, where, with a few easy steps, laymen can achieve good image quality and win photo contests. In this video, I will go through my step-by-step process of editing photos, from initial edits all the way through to submitting to photo contests or posting on social media. I will talk about the story behind the photo, why I chose such a composition, the critical mistakes one makes when they submit to photo contests, and how I deal with color, ultimate sharpening, highlight, shadows, and noise removal.

1. Seven high-def 1080p Videos, 3 hours 18 minutes total (streaming and download, no DVD),

I have seen many great photos from photographers which have great potential to win contest and move people if only they know a few tricks in Adobe Lightroom and photoshop to unleash the power hidden in their RAW photo files. My goal is that after this tutorial, you can edit your photo from start to finish within 15 minutes and the image will be ready for photo contest.
