Hi and welcome to “Watch. Create. Shine.” Unique classes designed for all solo / entrepreneurs to improve their work flow and increase joy. I’ve learned “Dreaming Big Rocks” because, like many, I held myself back too long. Let loose! Dream bigger. Keep Dreaming BIG.
I’m the infamous internationally published and exhibited punk photographer, Jenny Lens, MFA. I taught for years at major joints like UCLA, Santa Monica College, Art Institute of LA, and elsewhere.
BUT I could never teach THESE classes. Colleges and training centers never teach WHOLE process. Watch over my shoulder! See a real working artist, merch designer, teacher in action. ONLY learn what YOU need to know! My classes designed for YOU. Real-world, proven answers to many questions people ask me, IRL or online.
Watch Vid. Explore the Take A Class! or Bundle Up! Scroll/tap Class Images for more deets. BUT I designed this as a synergistic program: whole is more than sum of its parts. The tips, tricks, workflow can help YOU become more efficient, creative and happy.
Explore Ideas, Inspiration and Information for wide variety of articles. I’ll add more text and vid. Want it? Sign up. Thank you. Fun and Productive times ahead! I look forward to seeing what YOU do with “Watch. Create. Shine.“

Gallery of various images with varying sizes. An image may look great on Instagram and Facebook, and sucky here. Plus there's Pinterest and vids. At some pt, you gotta say: this is it. Moving on. WHY do Social Media companies think it's fine to make us waste days of...
Hi! I’m teaching MY take on Photography because I struggled to understand how to best use any DSLR camera. It's been hard, yet I'm a widely exhibited and published photographer. In film. Digital is a whole other animal. I LOVE it because you can do so much digitally....
Someone in a Lightroom Facebook group asked if he should make multiple catalogs for his personal vs a private organization. My response: I have two large hard drives with images (my early punk pix in one, digital photos and clip art in other), and variety of topics in...
Secret sauce for success: Products and Marketing using solid Art skills and knowledge, with strong Tech tools. A pal said she doesn't know much about art. I wrote a 'short' reply, off the top of my head, about some of my fave artists and genres. I could easily expand...
No, You Can't Pick My Brain. It Costs Too Much. We've all been there, done that. Glad to share info. To find out later that person had money, was making money on YOUR knowledge. Or were not there to help you. Be careful when bartering. Get everything in writing. If...
Treat people online as you would face to face. Treat people with compassion, empathy, kindness and consideration. Would you invite a stranger into your home, shows up outside your door, no name, no idea what they want, but they expect to come in, make themselves right...
Gourds and Candles, Holidays, Embellishment and Photo by Jenny Lens, MFA, October 2013 I created this lovely photo at a local restaurant event, as I was leaving, October 2013. The image is SOOC: "straight out of the camera." No adjustments, no presets, no filters....
Color Matters. Stop for a moment. Think and Feel about background colors in my swinging crystal pendulum photo. Which is the original photo? How did I change the colors? Why? What difference does it make? Did I merely tap or click a setting and that's it? Or did I put...
Most everyone LOVES textures! I love to stack them on top of each other, varying the Blending Modes and Opacity in Photoshop. Bokeh Fabric Overlays Paper...
A cool Facebook friend asked me for feedback about his new "Virtual Photo Portfolio." I clicked on the link and whoa, took me to a Facebook Page. My response to him: Ok, I will be as gentle as possible... FB is a social media site, NOT a portfolio site. Maybe Google...
WHY is this here? Once, when I questioned someone about lack of formatting on documents, I was told the leader is “authentic.” She’s “punk.” I kept my mouth shut, cos I wanted to remain on good terms with the person leading the group.
People say SHOW YOUR FACE. Ok, this is who I am. Divine passed and my hair grayer. I still have that dress, can fit into my punk clothes. I even have one of my cameras and flash. But that was then and this is now.
You can take me outta punk, but never the punk outta me. I was a FAMOUS early punk photographer. WILD. OH the stories I could tell you. The stories my pals share. My photos. You don’t know the half of it. AND I earned college degrees by then. Work in shows and museums. Plus returned to school. Now I teach myself. Online. Books, DIY. I’ve been around. I’m still here.
Gotta continually update skills and expand possibilities. Or not. But your competition is following this sage advice.
IF I can do all this, so can YOU! IF you clap your hands three times and BELIEVE in Yourself, Your Dream and this Growth Empowering Process. Ok, you don’t have to clap. Just believe. “Watch. Create. Shine.”
