Working on getting a portfolio of images ready for when I release book series or get a bit closer to release to use on Instagram.
I have decided to create an Instagram theme that will reflect all the elements of my fictional worlds and the inspiration used rather not just “see book… buy” images.
Since this is an off world culture that is not easy to do as one would expect. Therefore using earth based items to shoot, I then have to ‘twist’ that photo to get that “alien” spin…. Yet be familiar to get up close and personal with. You want your reader to able to relate, thus the balance.
This week I started doing a series of “photo shoots” using a variety of items that I then manipulated on Photoshop. Still in the experimental stage but I do think this idea will work. I plan to show many aspects of the culture, food, animals, holidays, art, even geological specimens.
Next I will coordinate my alien world calendar with our calendar to note festivals, holidays, birthdays, etc. of the characters and their cultures.
Here is a few examples of what I am working on …. Not the best by far but within my ability at the present time
