Finding the Picture with Brooks Jensen

Brooks is often asked, "How do you find things to photograph? What should I photograph next?" In essence — How do you find the picture in the chaos of life?

He says, "I'm not at all sure I can explain it, but I can demonstrate it — with representative pictures I can share here in this new series of posts for LensWork Online members."

Below are links to pages that show a scene and then the resulting image Brooks found/created from there.

Most recent posts are at the top. A new post every Monday
