TMax 3200 at the record shop.

I exposed some TMax 3200 recently. Came out okay. I need to sharpen my eye, but the film itself works very well at night. Of course, it’s grainy, that’s the point. Nonetheless, I like the look.

Putkowski-8769-S1-0030

This exposure was scanned and tweaked in Lightroom. Again, came out okay, but needs a better perspective.

The Next Testament, book trailer

Here’s the trailer for my latest novel, The Next Testament, available exclusively on Amazon Kindle and trade paperback from Amazon. Search in the Kindle store by “Daniel Putkowski, The Next Testament,” to find it easily.

This is a dystopian, alternative near future story set in a story world populated by characters you’ll never forget.

Here’s the jacket copy:

When faith becomes a crime, a small mining town demands salvation from an unlikely prophet. After a devastating second civil war, the Reunited States of America has only one religion, the Common Faith, and Compliance Specialist Zoe Whelan has been on a roll, capturing hold-out Christians who refuse to give up their beliefs. While recovering after a near-death experience, she discovers former priest John Carroll is writing the Next Testament, a revelation from God that threatens to reignite conflict. Zoe’s on the hunt again, in a battle for her life against corrupt Common Faith officials and a dangerous girl-gang known as the Mollies. As she closes in on Father Carroll, Zoe has a revelation of her own, but will she survive to fulfill her destiny as The Messenger, the one who brings the Next Testament to a population desperate for freedom and salvation?

Available exclusively on Amazon Kindle and trade paperback. Check it out.

Nikon Treasure (part 1)

I’ve been dabbling in analog photography again. It is irresistible, if a bit frustrating after some years of digital. I recently purchased a Nikon 85mm f1.8 lens from a seller in Japan.

It arrived quickly and was in excellent condition. I’ll add this to the F4S camera that just arrived. A post about that will soon follow. I’ll also start posting some images taken with this camera and a few different lenses. Stay tuned.

Ulanzi Lens Footage

As posted before, I’m exploring the use of the Osmo Pocket Camera with Ulanzi add-on lenses. The results vary. However, for the cost of about USD$15 each at this time, I think they’re worth the creative possibilities they offer. Here’s a look at the OP-5 and OP-8, which are the wide angle and fish eye.

Of course, this is just a primitive test designed to show the perspective of each lens. With more practice and a few projects coming, I think they’ll be helpful in creating some great footage. Get out there with your camera and have some fun!
