Another episode of INSIDE the LENS is here! On today’s show I talk about creating a Culture vs building a following. It makes me cringe when I find people that treat their followers as mindless sheep, flogging them with endless “e-books” which keep people just out of reach of being great! I NEED to create a culture!!Continue Reading
Inside the lens is launched!
Well time to bring this up a notch, I have created a show called INSIDE the LENS with JESSE MARTINEAU (that’s me)! I decided that I have had enough of photographers selling their “Techniques” or “presets” or worst of all “Knowledge”. Giving people just a taste to keep them coming back for more, while bleeding them for any penny they can grab. Sounds like a joke to me, so instead of just ranting about it, I am going to do something about it! I am giving away what I know, FOR FREE!Continue Reading

Photography Composition is like REALLY important! Really.
Well if you have been around a camera for a while, photography composition is what you can just see, but if you haven’t it might seem like a bit of a foreign concept.

Maybe you are visual, like me, and this will really help you learn some basics about photography composition!Continue Reading
The February Photos are here!
You know February could be the “black sheep” of the months. It holds the most pointless day, the 14th, and once of the weirdest days, the 29th. That all being said it is still one of the 12 and must be observed like any other month, but just not as long, taking in it only has the 28 days… Well this was weird, anyway over the 29 days I managed to gather some very February photos for all of you! Enjoy!Continue Reading

YouTube channel right NOW~!Continue Reading

The Lightroom clarity slider can be a valuable asset, however it can be horribly misused. Another photo help for all of you photogs out there, I have seen a HORRIBLY misused editing adjustment popping up more and more, and IT NEEDS TO STOP! Lightroom has amazing quality’s and editing adjustments, and I use many of them on every photo, however, there are some tweaks that are ruining many peoples photos! The Lightroom Clarity slider….Continue Reading
