I’ve been following Jenna’s magic for awhile now and fall in love with every image she shares. I can’t even remember where I saw her work first, but I kept going back to find more once I found her.
Jenna is passionate about her surreal photography and makes an effort to learn something new in Photoshop every week. That goal in itself is enough inspiration to put into practice yourself! I think when we start learning Photoshop we think there’s an end goal that we want to achieve so badly. But with PS, there’s so many ways to get to your final destination and the part that keeps it fun is that no matter how much you know, there’s always more to learn.
Besides just spending her time learning, she also loves to share and pass on her knowledge to you. If you hurry, you might be able to snag her last open spots to the truly incredible workshops that she has coming up in November.
She has this incredible behind the scenes video for her Insomniac image.
Recently I entered a creativeLIVE Illustrative Portraiture contest and was proud enough to be in the top 100. Then I saw that the 2nd place winner was an image I had seen awhile back that I spent a LONG time looking at and going back to over and over. It was so beautiful in such a dream like, but realistic way that I filed it in my memory as one of my favorite images of all time. But for some reason, until creating this post about Jenna I didn’t connect that it was HER image. As soon as I saw that, I was so excited to realize it was hers and it made me even more thrilled that I had chosen her for one of the most inspiring photographers in my life!
Jenna’s work makes me dream. It makes me want to go out and shoot and to pay attention to my imagination in order to create something I love.
As much fun as this 31 Days of Photographer that Inspire project has been and as much incredible feedback as I’ve gotten from you all, there’s no way this can just be the end. We have two days left, but I’m working on the way I want to keep it going as an ongoing inspirational resource. I don’t think it will be every single day, but the details of when and how often will be posted soon! I’ve gotten so many messages from people telling me who inspires them as well and I would love to hear more! If you know of a photographer that you would like to see featured, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. While it is great to nominate yourself, the true beauty of this project has evolved from giving love to other photographers, so if you want to be featured yourself, have a friend that YOU inspire, send us the message!
