Working with Apocalypse Ink Productions

clock April 19, 2012 17:23 by author Amber

This weekend is going to be fun. I'll be spending time out in the field creating some test images for the project I'm working on with author Jennifer Brozek and her label, Apocalypse Ink Productions. In technical terms, it's a fumetti*, or photo graphic novel. In the more abstract, it's awesome, a tale of deceit, power grabs, and dead people.

You may be asking yourself, "So what, Amber? That's exciting and all but what does that have to do with taking test photos?"

I'll be playing with a new technique and a new type of lens I've never used before; a LensBaby Composer. I've never played with one so it's good that these are only test photographs. I've taken a few pictures already and fiddled with it some more but we'll see how it goes.

Yeah, I'm going to have fun with it.

* I have to thank Donna Barr for pointing me in this direction.

An Evening with Authors

The evening of August 21st was a mighty fine one for story tellers. The award winning author and editor Jennifer Brozek assembled a crew of talented writers from the greater Seattle area for fun time of grand stories at the Wayway Coffee House in Seattle.

Lily Cohen-More, Jennifer's personal assitant, walks between the chairs, making sure that everything is ready to go.


Jennifer is the fine host of the evening as she thanks her readers.

Over the Edge: Between the Rows

I take a lot of photographs, but I think you already know that. My only regret is that some of them never get the exposure, pardon the pun, that the others get. Take for example this shot:

The photo was taken at the Dominican Fathers building in the University District. It was shot for the story "Sins of the Brother" by Jennifer Brozek. it was ultimately rejected by the author in favor of the figure of St. Francis of Asis.
