How about a video instead of a photo? Say . . . the trailer for CHRONICLE OF DESTINY?
And since it IS Photo Friday, I’ll give you some of the tech specs on creating it. The video itself was made in Windows Movie Maker from my collection of images I’ve been creating for the book. The moving graphic of Tariah and Dominic was done with six layers to each. (This is why you work in PSD files with layers, kids. You can do things like that.) The music was composed by J.D. Arc–who happens to be a friend–just for the series. As the video says at the end, the full version will be downloadable soon.
Many thanks have to go out to several people: Lea, for being willing to do a photo shoot in desert clothing while it was 50 degrees outside; Navid, for having such a sense of humor when I asked him to show up shirtless; my mother Cheryl who drove for eight hours straight to get me to a desert where I could shoot some of the backgrounds I used; and J.D. who put up with me poking and nagging until I got my music.
CHRONICLE is still up for pre-order on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/dp/0615826628/ref=tsm_1_fb_lk), and I’m still running my pre-order contest (https://www.facebook.com/events/193666720790442/?ref=22). Come help me celebrate this occasion, and you might get your hands on some fun prizes!
