LensWork - Photography and the Creative Process

Brooks Jensen

Random Observations on Art, Photography, and the Creative Process. These talks focus on the creative process in fine art photography. LensWork editor Brooks Jensen side-steps techno-talk and artspeak to offer a stimulating mix of ideas, experience, and observations from his 50 years as a fine art photographer, writer, and publisher. Topics include a wide range of subjects from finding subject matter to presenting your work, and building an audience.

Included in this RSS Feed are the LensWork Podcasts — posted weekly, typically 10-20 minutes exploring a topic a bit more deeply — and our almost daily Here's a thought… audios (extracted from the videos.) Here's a thought… are snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain. Usually just a minute or two. Always about photography and the art life.

Brooks Jensen is the publisher of LensWork, one of the world's most respected and award-winning photography publications, known for its museum-book quality printing and luxurious design. LensWork has subscribers in over 73 countries. He is the author of 13 books on photography and the creative life -- the latest books are The Best of the LensWork Interviews (2016), Photography, Art, and Media (2016), and the four annual volumes of Seeing in SIXES (2016-2019).

    HT1048 - The Handheld Viewing Experience

    2:43

    HT1048 - The Handheld Viewing Experience I was recently having an email exchange with one of our subscribers about the differences between LensWork in print and LensWork on-screen. He much preferred the print edition. On exploring this further, we decided it wasn't as much about media as it was about the handheld experience.

    HT1047 - Enough Variables

    2:43

    HT1047 - Enough Variables The other day I recorded an episode of Exploring the Back Issues that featured the work of Julie Meridian from her project Specimens that was published in LensWork #82 in 2009. One of the things that struck me in her project was the number of variables she used that keeps the work interesting.

    HT1046 - Four Hundred Images

    2:43

    HT1046 - Four Hundred Images I was recently listening to a podcast interview with Huntington Witherill. He was asked if he is still working on his body of work that became the book Photo Synthesis. He casually mentioned that he'd stopped working on that project after about 400 finished images. That's not a typo - - four hundred images!

    HT1045 - Keywording as a Daily Project

    2:43

    HT1045 - Keywording as a Daily Project I have about 100,000 images in my Lightroom catalog and 12 months ago a lot of them were not yet keyworded. Using the "chip away at it" philosophy, I've been keywording small groups of them every morning with my first cup of coffee. Keeping at it like this, I'm almost done with keywords for all 100,000 of them.

    HT1044 - All Desserts

    2:43

    HT1044 - All Desserts I used the term dessert photography to indicate a certain kind of super duper expialidocious image that is a combination of extraordinary light, extraordinary weather, extraordinary landscape, with an extraordinary moment. These are certainly lovely images and get a lot of attention. But just like dessert there is a limit to how much I'm that kind of photography I can consume before it becomes too much, a bit off-putting, if not downright sickening.

    HT1043 - Styles and Presets

    2:43

    HT1043 - Styles and Presets There's a subtle difference between styles in a layout program and presets in an image editing program. They both have their purpose, but it can be important to understand the differences.

    HT1042 - My Second Piece of Advice

    2:43

    HT1042 - My Second Piece of Advice My second piece of advice (I know, I was supposed to have just one, so sue me) is to not give up on an image too soon. Not every exposure is destined to be a masterpiece, but far too many photographers give up on an image before they've discovered its limits for potential.

    LW1278 - PBWA, Photography by Wandering Around There are, of course, good reasons to plan and prepare and know where and why you are going to photograph.
