Jamie Heiden • Holmen, WI• Digital Photography


Once upon a time in a land far, far away...or was it right down the road and just the other day?

Either way it's the beginning of a story.

A story of everyday, told with just a little bit of fairy tale mixed in. A story that begins with the images and goes wherever your mind takes it, a different place for each and every person.

 

Jamie Heiden is a photographer first.

She gets the most satisfaction out of taking a picture. But when she sits down at her computer, the beginnings unfold.

Most of her finished images contain multiple photographic layers.

Dodging, burning, boosting contrast and adjusting exposure were all tasked performed in the darkroom that are now tools she has at her fingertips using the computer.

End of the Line

Measure Twice

What would have taken hours in the darkroom can be done and then undone in half the time, not necessarily making the completed process any shorter but allowing for ten times the amount of experimenting within.

Screaming beauty is easy to see --the grand mountainscape, the picturesque lighthouse, the waves crashing on a shoreline. Whispering beauty is more subtle and requires you to pay closer heed - dew glistening on a leaf, the moon reflecting in a tidal pool, gulls flying through morning fog.

As a photographer I try to take that screaming beauty and transform it into little whispers of of beauty, to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
