Magazine. People. 6, likes. Related Pages. John Paul Caponigro. Artist Join Brooks (and Mo) at the press-check for the cover of LensWork #, featuring. So I ordered a subscription to LensWork magazine and have received my third magazine. I ordered it without seeing one for a few years. It’s hard to find a purer example for the product-marketing connection than LensWork magazine. LensWork has grown for 20 consecutive years.
Jul 3, 1. So I ordered a subscription to LensWork magazine and have received my third magazine. I ordered it without seeing one for a few years. I am shocked at how it has changed since I last read one. I think it should mabazine called Photoshop work now not LensWork. I think it misses the influence of past years and someone important to the magazine. Now I never get into these discussions but I am truly shocked at the changes.
Each to his own and all that but personally I am very disappointed and little saddened. Jul 3, 2.
I was a subscriber for years but I too got tired of the mainly over worked images I saw in Lenswork. PhotoShop done well can help an artist produce outstanding work, however done poorly it renders things grotesquely imho. That being said, Brooks has to change with the times to stay relevant to the majority of his subscribers and those he hopes to attract. We at APUG for the most part are maazine a small microcosm of the general photographic community. If Brooks solely based his editorial policies on what we want he would be out of business in six months.
As the songs says, “the times they are a changing”, only thing is we aren’t. Nothing wrong with that. Just don’t expect those that have to put food on the table to not change with the times.
Jul 3, 3. So is Lenswork no longer a “film and darkroom only” lenseork I had no idea. Jul 3, 4. Perhaps you should read his mission statement.
It does not appear to have changed for at least 10 years. I’ve been a subscriber since and will continue to be one.
Jul 3, 5. Sadly it just continues to be a very good photography magazine showing good work by various artists.
Jul 3, 6. The reproductions are excellent, and articles well written. I was a subscriber since day once but dropped it last year as the Canadian dollar is pretty weak compared to the US dollar.
I did notice that some of the images appeared to be over worked in PS Jul 3, 7. Well this issue is full of images of birds with digitally added star light skies. Beautiful pieces of digital magazins but not really so much as magazinee.
Th black and white landscapes are laughable. So over worked and so over done to death now days. So easy to do do this things now days on the computer. Everybody is in on the act even my 7 year old granddaughter is making art with my iPhone according to todays standards.
The days of true craftsmanship and artistry is falling away. Jul 3, 8. Not surprised, film photography left the magazines decades ago to be replaced by articles on how great the latest camera was but never reporting the problems nor the the flaws. They just wanted the revenue from the manufacturers’ ads.
Jul 4, 9. Subscribe to to photo klassic Jul 4, He does seem to be mixing things up a bit. In the issue I am reading the number one photographer I don’t have the issue directly in front magqzine me or I would name him in the magazine is using alternative photography and printing to produce some very interesting photographs. They kagazine just a bit dark for my own personal taste but they certainly don’t look photoshopped.

Another way to get more film and darkroom material is to submit some work for his consideration. Even if you don’t get printed immediately I understand that Brooks does a terrific portfolio review. I think if we are serious about getting analogue work out in front in some of these magazines we mafazine way to consider doing the hard work and submitting some of our own work occasionally. I miss being able to pick up a copy of Lenswork at my local book store. I used to keep a couple of copies in my cube at work which has now been magazlne into a “collaborative environment” for lunchtime reading or inspiration.
I did subscribe online but I get tired of the computer 12 hours a day so found that I did not keep up. I never go back and lendwork at the PDFs in the same way I do the printed magazines. Brooks does a great job of helping photographers market and share their work.
Its hard to imagine Eddie Ephraums working digitally after I have seen his fabulous lith and toned images in his book Darkroom Techniques. Tim Layton has started a new Analog magazine – Darkroom Underground. The DU first edition was packed with tips, good photography, and great information from some respected photographers.
Currently only electronic format with print editions expected next year. Jul 5, I fall under the “if you don’t like what he prints, send him something you do” crowd. I’ve been meaning to do it for years, but I don’t like writing about myself, so I haven’t done it. I did finally send some images in for the Seeing in Sixes book. All film of course. Lens Work is probably the only place where you can send film images these days. I used to follow David Vestal’s writing almost religiously until he pilloried Brooks in one of his columns.
That is all it took. Be careful what you complain about As far as digital in the magazine goes, yeah, he changed. I remember not liking a lot of the images that magazines published back before digital, so why would everything be perfect today? Just is what it is. Well I don’t subscribe to a magazine to look at my work. I have that sitting right here. Jul 6, It was all film and darkroom. I submitted it the previous February. It takes a long time to hear back because of the quantity of submissions they get.
