"Subject to Interpretation."
As photographers and observers of life and the world around us, we all see and notice different things. We each have different impressions of subjects because of our life experiences as well as our knowledge of the tools we have available to us and our vision. When we make an image, we are putting in "the box" what speaks to us most clearly and loudly through our eyes, mind and heart. Everything, yes, everything, is subject to interpretation. In this program Jamie will share her vision and ways to grow and develop awareness and confidence in our individual ways of interpreting the world around us. She'll also provide some ideas on how to focus and be more intentional in the image-making process.
And the "presenter" is:
Jamie Konarski Davidson is an award-winning outdoor & nature photographer with a passion for capturing and sharing intimate details of nature and landscapes. She embraces creative techniques, simple beauty, and encourages people in their photographic journeys to find their visual voice. Her process emphasizes connecting with subjects and presenting them in ways that convey how she feels in the moment of capture. Her creative tools include color, infrared and black/white, HDR, long exposure, Lensbaby and all the tools of the digital darkroom. Being open to experiment and try new techniques is the dance of this photographer/artist.
Based in Greenville, NC, Jamie is a member of the North American Nature Photography Association and Carolinas Nature Photographers Association. She has presented programs and workshops for NANPA's 2015 Nature Photography Summit, N4C's Annual Conference, CanAm Photo Conference and, most recently, Mike Moats' Macro Photo Conference. She also speaks to local and regional camera clubs and organizations in the Southeast. Through New Life Photos, Jamie leads workshops and photo tours throughout the Southeast and markets her work through exhibits and art shows. Her goals as an instructor are to encourage, inspire and help people develop and grow their skills, connect with their subjects and see beyond the obvious so they can discover their own visual voice.
