Added a new gallery for the photo story covers to raise awareness that the images are connected by a storyline. Current releases are in a printable photo story style, they also come with a media gallery with all uncropped and unused pictures.
Looks like I didn't write an update for my DA profile in months. These days I'm more active on our Discord server, Instagram or the Patreon page. Speaking of, I've recently changed releases to a format I call photo story.
It's basically a digital PDF photo book with the story integrated into the picture as text. I do the layout of those with a tool called Affinity Publisher. It is pretty close to Adobe InDesign.
There is also a more traditional media gallery with all the images used in the photo story and some more bonus pictures that I ended up not using.
So far I have released three of those photo stories. "What happens in Core 4, stays at Core 4", a trial run combining two stories from 2019. "The First Birthday" and "Into The Conduit", the regular releases for April with new material.
This was a super-important step for me after Dropbox shut down their Showcase feature at the end of last year. I also have some ideas about doing new interpretations of old photos in that format.
Not that it's getting weird being alone for the holidays for the first time in 40 years or something. To fight the Christmas blues I will video-call some family members later and prepare a special Christmas pizza for dinner. Nice home-made yeast dough, hollandaise sauce, red cabbage, pears and cheddar. Already looking forward to that.
So happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or just some nice non-religious days off for all of you. No matter if you spend the time together with friends and family or alone for whatever reason.
