Amy Jamieson Photography…Progress

Monday, March 19th, 2018

The new site is far from done…but I have made great progress in understanding how WordPress works.  I am thankful that I have friends who are so helpful and supportive in this endeavor.  I am finally in the process of setting up pages and then I will need to cull through 20+ hard drives to find photo content and then find all the copy I need to get this thing off the ground.  Right now I am just ecstatic that my son and I figured out the CSS coding to get rid of a funky background that I absolutely did NOT like.  I was scared to mess with the coding and thankfully my son jumped right in to confirm what I was doing was right.  He is pretty awesome.  Sometimes you have to trust yourself.  I think I need to do that more.
Slowly… but surely… I will get this down.  It takes a backseat to my life and my job search.   Until then… don’t mind the dust…

Augmented Reality in Manufacturing

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

What is Augmented Reality?  Augmented Reality (AR) is an indirect or direct live view of an existing real world environment.  It is filled with amplified computer generated perceptual information.  It is cutting edge technology that superimposes computer generated images into the real world view in order to provide a composite view.  AR technology enhances many aspects of efficiency for the manufacturing industry.  Aside from the increased technical opportunities, it can assist in maintenance and diagnostics, save human resources, reduce costs and physical risk while also providing a valuable tool for training and education.

With Augmented Reality, a facility can inspect and visualize technical upgrades and modifications without taking great financial risks and prolonged periods of down time. This can be an opportunity for the facility to upgrade equipment while still maintaining general operation.

AR allows companies to maintain, diagnose, and repair equipment without retaining facility specific or professional support staff while still receiving immersive and expert technical assistance.  Technicians will no longer need to travel from one facility to another to assist with maintenance and repairs.  They can collaborate across vast geographical distances to remotely assist and repair equipment.  AR enables smaller companies to utilize expert technicians while not having them on staff and decreases the general cost of maintenance and repair to ultimately increase the efficiency of the facility.

Video example:

Technicians with extensive training are able to communicate with and remotely access or advise newer technicians with real time problems without the added costs of travel and time.  AR enables the technicians to use real time information without relying on outdated manuals.  This allows them to work more effectively and efficiently to repair and maintain equipment.  Repairs and maintenance can be visualized in live view with hands on experience and training as if the expert is walking the technician through the process in person.  It can assist technicians with complex assembly of manufactured goods in real time without the use of outdated static documents that are not easily or efficiently updated.  This technology enables the technician to be up to date on changes or upgrades in the facility in addition to the particular item being manufactured.

The future of Augmented Reality goes far beyond entertainment value.  Millions of users experienced the basic idea of AR with the introduction of the application, Pokémon Go in July of 2016 by enabling anyone with a smart phone to download it free from Nintendo.  This location based app utilized GPS to enable the user to locate, capture, battle and train the Pokémon characters virtually as if they were in the same real time and physical space as the player.

As Augmented Reality continues to develop and become more accessible, the manufacturing industry will become more efficient and the capacity in which it functions will increase exponentially.  Because AR gives people the ability to receive contextually relevant information almost immediately and automatically, the technology will continue to be in great demand in other industries as well.



Spring Break

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Since it is Spring Break here in Tukee, the hubs and I took the week off to spend with the children.  The boy is working more hours (don’t blame him) and we are spending time with the girls doing odds and ends.  They grow up so fast.  It is simply crazy.

After spending an amazing day with the girls… we came home and made some pretty awesome softball bows.  We watched the movie Wonder Woman and then sent the girls to bed.  Practice starts up again tomorrow.  Time to get busy again.

Tomorrow is an exciting day.  I get to get busy learning about some new things and finally putting my writing skills back to the test.  I feel like without having the opportunity to market for my business like I used to, I have been becoming quite rusty… and it is time for a change.

I cannot wait.  I hope you all really enjoy spring break with your children… we certainly are!


When you’re backing up…

Monday, March 12th, 2018

a website and you can barely keep your eyes open.

For some reason when I try to back it all up in bulk…it fails every time. So I have slowly and painstakingly copied each file one by one today.

Now it’s down to one file. 12 minutes (supposedly…ha) and my self determination. It’s almost 4am and I’m gonna finish this tonight.

Tomorrow it’s more website research and some decisions need to be made.


Here’s to sleep!

I FINALLY have my blog back up and running.  It may take me some time to get into the habit of posting again, but I am so excited to try.  I cannot tell you how much I have missed this and I think it will be an uplifting thing for me to maintain.  (Let’s hope I keep this momentum!)

Here is the updated business info… as I am trying to update the blog!

Little H and R are so cute!  When H’s mommy called and asked if she could bring the cousin I said heck ya!  haha!  This little sweetie is just cute!  You can tell they are related.  Unfortunately, Mister H liked to pull his cousin’s hair and I don’t think it was well received.  Hahah!    I am so thankful for little boys and their personality differences!!!!!  I am not sure moms knew that we would have as much wild and crazy fun as we did, but boy was it a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  🙂

I am sad that this was the last session in this little sweetie’s plan!  But I am hoping they will come back for some family portraits soon!  I adore these little girls and their big brother!  He is such a cutie and I love how sweet their family is!  I wish I had more to share but right now these two are all I got!

Can you just imagine what little girls are made of by just looking at that silly face?  bwahahaha!
