Photography, Not Cameras Informal "Fireside Chat" Videos with Brooks Jensen In these more extensive videos, Brooks presents an informal and extemporaneous discussion of a wide variety of topics. Casual, fun, and intended to stimulate thought and creativity.

Different than our podcasts or Creative Labs, PNC videos are like attending a live workshop without the travel or the expense! Creative Labs Some topics are vitally important, but simply do not require a full workshop.

These programs are typically shorter than full workshops, explore a wide variety of topics, and are presented in their entirety at no additional cost as a LensWork Online membership benefit.

Creative Labs are mostly technical in nature and center on software like Lightroom, Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat, and others. Be sure to check out our free Photoshop, Lightroom, and InDesign templates link below. Workshops, Seminars, and Recorded Talks We are big fans of the training available at lynda.

Special Interviews From time to time, we interview people like the Mary Virginia Swanson, Stephen Perloff, or Bill Jay — talented individuals who offer more to photography than their photographic skills. Writers, thinkers, movers-and-shakers, these special interviews are available for download from LensWork Online.
