Greeting Cards by Jamie Heiden
These greeting cards are by Jamie Heiden, of Holmen, Wisconsin, using her technique of layered-digital photography.
They are printed on quality card stock measuring 5.5 x 4.25" and are blank inside. They all arrive packaged in an archival sleeve with an envelope.
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 image 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 tasks performed in the darkroom that are now tools she has at her fingertips using the computer. 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.
Her titles are an integral part of her images. She loves the journey words allow us to travel. Simplicity and story are the goals and the lists of artists who inspire include writers, painters and movie directors in addition to her photographic idols.
Jamie’s interest in photography began early in school and carried through to her college education with a degree in Photography and Printing Technology from Northern Arizona University.
