Brand Your Photos with Textures, Text, Layers and More

Photoshop great for selectively improving areas of photos

Photoshop tools and techniques included brightening photo, retouching and selective pumping up saturation to improve this badly photographed product photo.

The makeup is from the late 1970s during my punk era. Still quite colorful. I just didn't light the image correctly when I photographed it. 

You'll see a fun tutorial showing how I turned image on left into image on right. You will love enhancing details and colors in images. Magical!

Color Correct and Prep for Photo Lab

Bad Scan, printed as is by Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe and Hotel. Color corrected and cropped with white Borders. Sized to print. Now a Pro Image! Thanks to Photoshop.

No stylists. True slice of real life during the earliest days of punk, April 1977. 

THE most beloved photo in my archive. Never try to figure out which creation of yours will become infinitely famous! Just create from your heart, using good art and design principles, with effective use of "tools of the trade."

Watch (and listen) so you can Create and Shine too!

Magnolia with vintage preset and adjustments in Lightroom first. Then modified frame and assembled in Photoshop. (The frame was not merely resized. Gotta watch to see the system I developed.)

People Are Talking

Jenny’s photo class has been a fun and easy way to introduce myself further into the world of photography and get some amazing insight from one of the real talents. From her amazing shots of punks greats, to real world aptitude, I felt honored to catch some insider tips to apply to my day to day photos and try to go further than I thought before." ~ Mark Heck

“Thanks for all the advice and support re my site design issues. Very useful and more than my designer discussed or suggested.” ~ Ashley Cherry

"YOU are THE Punk Rock Goddess Photographer!" ~Rodney Bingenheimer, the "Mayor of Sunset Strip."

"You would be a great teacher because you have a plethora of knowledge" ~ Kimra Luna, BTBY, Freedom Hackers Galaxy

"Your work made me realize that every show was an EVENT, a moment outside "real" life that should and could be internalized and immortalized. Making the ugly look good and the good look ugly. And the music didn't suck either." ~Erich Dye, Facebook

"Great pix. Jenny you are more than an artist. You caught the whole passion of those times. You should be world famous with all the financial security and recognition that brings." ~Liz Winchell, an early LA punk rocker

“We were contacted by a large organization with press, radio and other media coverage within first month after Jenny Lens redesigned our ecommerce site. 

Our site rarely displayed by Google til she performed her magic! I couldn’t buy media coverage like that for what I paid Jenny. She organized info, provided search engine strategies, a total facelift and trained me to use it. 

We were in business 12 years and no large company ever found us. Our previous ecommerce site was a mess, badly designed and hard to find info. Always a pleasure working with Jenny. Brightest, most energetic person I know. Fun too. She’s tough, but results worth it!” ~Mark Martinez, graphic artist and designer

Compare cost to the Colleges and Universities where I taught comparable programs:

  • UCLA Extension charges from $979 to $1075. I taught Illustrator at UCLA Extension.
  • Santa Monica College charges hundreds, depending if resident or not. I taught Photoshop at SMC. Gave my notes to teacher who replaced me when I left, who gave them to his replacement.
  • Comparable costs at other colleges, universities and computer training centers where I taught (under worse conditions for teachers and students, which is why I’m teaching online!)
  • You can learn more real world situations than what I was forced to teach at colleges, and for a fraction of the cost!
  • Why so affordable? 
  • I don’t want cost to be a barrier to YOUR Empowerment, Growth and Joy. 
  • That’s why.
