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 40 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 series are the LensWork Podcasts -- typically 10-15 minutes exploring a topic a bit more deeply -- and our almost daily Here's a thought . . . series. Here's a thought . . . is the audio portion from videos with the same title and are snippets, fragments, morsels, and tidbits from Brooks' fertile (and sometimes swiss-cheesy) brain. Usually just a minute or so. Pretty much daily. 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. His latest books are "Seeing in SIXES (2016), The Best of the LensWork Interviews (2016), Photography, Art, and Media (2016), Seeing in SIXES (2017), Seeing in SIXES (2018), and Seeing in SIXES (2019).

Rank #1: LW1174 - Precision

Strange as it may sound, I do miss the precision demanded of me by the processes in the wet darkroom. Perhaps it's time to recognize that precision is still required, but in a different area of our art life.

If you want to sell you photographs, you'd better be willing to let go of your internal motivations and produce the photographs the market demands - even if that's dewy spider webs and kittens playing with yarn.

Rank #7: LW1168 - Here's a thought . . . audios

Podcast cover

As many of you already know, a few months ago we started a new series called Here's a thought that are short 1-2 minute videos, posted pretty much daily, where the focus is on ideas that are best presented in a short format - unlike our regular podcasts. A listener has written:

"Love Here's a thought. Great stuff but I don't really need the video. Can you do them in an audio-only version maybe via RSS Feed sorta like your podcasts? That way I could listen to them in the car."

Why not? So we'll give it a try for a couple of weeks. Let us know what you think with this Google Form.
