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.

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.

Redneck BBQ Lab

So, yeah, BBQ is the way to go when you’re that hungry and demand quality. I’ve head the pleasure of enjoying the Redneck BBQ Lab on four separate occasions now. It’s always fantastic. Here’s a short video of them racking up some ribs.

And here’s a video made with my Osmo Pocket Camera showing the platter.

That’s a half rack by the way. Next time, I’m going all in for the full rack. Worth every bite.

Scripting a book trailer.

A novel contains reams of material. Distilling all that into a movie-style trailer took some major thought. I think I have what will work best, introducing the audience to the story and the major conflict.

LQkl3yInQQqJVWBvOJlr+gThe key is to tell enough without telling too much. Not an easy task. A great production team is ready to bring this script to the screen. I’ll post more about the process, and of course, the final video.
