  • HT1165 - My Baseline Camera Settings

    13/05/2022 Duración: 02min

    HT1165 - My Baseline Camera Settings When you turn on your digital camera, it defaults to the same settings. These baseline settings are ones you can control. Makes sense to me to configure these baseline settings for your most common shooting scenario. Here are my baseline settings and why.

  • HT1164 - The Rhythm of Sequencing

    12/05/2022 Duración: 02min

    HT1164 - The Rhythm of Sequencing The even tap-tap-tap of staccato quickly becomes boring. The same can be said of a sequence of photographs that consists of unrelenting excellence. This is especially true for a book of photographs. Our temptation is to fill the book with our greatest hits images. But if every image is outstanding, the staccato can become numbing.

  • HT1163 - The Intersection

    11/05/2022 Duración: 02min

    HT1163 - The Intersection Photography happens at the intersection between three things: time, space, and access. By "access" I mean YOU. If a tree falls in the forest and there's no one there to photograph it, the tree still falls nonetheless. Those who spend the most time out photographing and have the greater access to events in time and space are likely to be the ones who make the best photographs.

  • HT1162 - Sketches

    10/05/2022 Duración: 02min

    HT1162 - Sketches My approach to photography has been majorly influenced by the book Sketches by Boz by Charles Dickens. A "sketch" to me means a careful and detail examination of some moment, some person, or some event. It's looking with more than a glance, relating more than an instant. I much prefer the term "sketches" to cumbersome alternatives like "project-oriented photography."

  • HT1161 - Understanding a Photograph

    09/05/2022 Duración: 02min

    HT1161 - Understanding a Photograph To really understand a photograph means to understand the context of the content. Consider Migrant Mother by Dorothea Lange. We understand that photograph in the context of the dust bowl migrations and economic privations of the times. This is one reason why abstracts are so difficult to understand; they lack context.

  • LW1297 - Orgasmographs

    09/05/2022 Duración: 12min

    LW1297 - Orgasmographs As I was photographing the crashing waves on the southern Oregon coast last week, I found myself asking why a spectacularly crashing wave was my photographic objective. I realized that so much of photography today is all about creating an ogasmograph. And I'm not sure this is a good thing. You might also be interested in. . .

    08/05/2022 Duración: 02min

    HT1160 - Ugliness Is Only Skin Deep My first ever paid job as a youngster was working behind the camera counter of a local retailer. My boss was a vulgar, dirty, unattractive, abrasive, and mean man. His primary job, however, was not managing the camera department but playing violin for the Portland Philharmonic Orchestra. He could make the most amazing and beautiful music.

    HT1159 - Chasing the Thrill What is your strongest connection to photography? Is your largest thrill found in the gear? The process and technology? The art? The audience? These four seem to be the most common. Interesting how they lead to different activities and choices.

  • LW1296 - Different Strategies for Different Landscapes

    02/05/2022 Duración: 12min

    LW1296 - Different Strategies for Different Landscapes I've returned to the Oregon coast after 8 months in the desert. The necessary shifting of gears has me a bit flummoxed because the approach to composition in the desert is so entirely different than the approach in the forest. For me, each ecosystem requires its own strategy for photography. You might also be interested in. . . Every Picture Is a Compromise, a series at www.brooksjensenarts.com. and...
