Jamie is teaching programs, leading a hand-on pre-conference workshop, and co-leading a Sunday am photowalk.
Jamie made a dazzling video showing her inspiring photographs. Attend her program, register for her hands-on workshop and join her on her photowalk. Her post-processing class has a wonderful philosophy "Remember, this is about vision, not reconstructive surgery". To take your images beyond the frame, you need to embrace “what if” and let go of the voices that tell you you’re “cheating.”
Take the plunge and sign up for her pre-conference workshop -- and learn how to move your images into another zone – the one that embraces and reflects your personal vision.

Cost $70, after Jun 21 $90 register http://necccphotoconference.org/necccregister/
You’ve done the work in the field and have gathered some images to process. Hopefully, you’re looking at images that already reflect what you saw, why you stopped and perhaps, even how you felt in the moment. Now what?
Sometimes, the answer is simple refinements such as adding contrast, vibrance, or adjusting clarity. Easy. How do you take it a step further? Remember, this is about vision, not reconstructive surgery. What about the images and subjects that have something more to say – about themselves and about you? These are the images that call out the inner artist – the ones you envision looking and feeling differently. These are the ones that take you “beyond the frame” and make you use the creative tools we have so they reflect how you see the world, your personal style and your connections to the subjects.
During this session, Jamie will share how she approaches post-processing to create images that speak to her artistic vision. She will walk through several images and the choices made in post using Adobe Photoshop, Topaz Studio (including Impression, Texture Effects and B&W Effects). She will also share on image blending, masking and textures.
To take your images beyond the frame, you need to embrace “what if” and let go of the voices that tell you you’re “cheating.” Take the plunge and learn how to move your images into another zone – the one that embraces and reflects your personal vision. Jamie will provide sample images. You will watch her and then do the same techniques to create your own interpretations for this hands-on workshop.
Prerequisites: You should have Adobe Photoshop (preferably PS CC), Topaz Labs Studio (Impression, Texture Effects & Black/White Effects) installed and running on your laptop and know how to open/save files. This class will assume that you have some basic knowledge of Photoshop and layers – and therefore will focus on intermediate editing techniques to create more unique looks and effects. You may choose to share a computer and look on with a friend — or just come and take notes if you learn better without your computer.
Program: open to all
INTERPRETIVE ARTISTIC TECHNIQUES IN-CAMERA
For the artist at heart – Jamie will share creative ways to interpret subjects in-camera that go beyond what the subject is and reflect how a subject makes one feel. Learn about simple techniques and tools that will help you add emotional impact to your images such as motion blurs, multiple exposures, Lensbaby, infrared and more.
When Sun 7:00 am – 8:00 am
Bring Camera converted to INFRARED or camera with INFRARED filter, or email leaders and arrange a loaner of an INFRARED filter.
