With the release of the Virtual Mobile Edition, I thought it would be beneficial to include the links to all the editions below. Each of these are PDFs that you can download to your computer, tables and mobile devices and extend your LightBox experience. Each edition features 12 new, independent challenges to coinside with each individual deck!

Behind the Image http://paulmichaelkanephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/6/behind-the-image Every once in a while, I'll have an image in my head that begs to be created . . . Unlock Your Imagination is one such image. Created in just under 10 minutes - from start to finish - the photo was an exercise in creativity. I had just shot a wedding - something I don't usually do as I don't get much creative fulfillment out of it and was busy processing the images and getting bored. So this composition crept into my head and I knew it would be just the thing to reignite my creativity. I raided my wife's scrapbook embellishments, grabbed a few antiques laying around the house and created the image you see below - I thought it might be fun to see the entire process from start to finish!

The print is available here: http://bit.ly/1pCMEIt

Foto Grafis a huge success! http://paulmichaelkanephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/5/foto-grafis-a-huge-success

In January of 2014, I launched a Kickstarter campaign to help create Foto Grafis Playing Cards . . . the campaign was designed for a 30 day run and, to my astonishment, was funded in the first 24 hours. Along with the deck, I'd designed numerous extras to accompany the cards as a reward for backing. 

These included a lens cloth, stylus/pen combo, limited edition print and a custom, branded poker chip. There was also a 1.5" coin designed for the campaign and a laser engraved display box created. 

The campaign pulled in close to 350 backers from around the world and sold nearly 800 decks to countries like Australia, China, Germany and Japan.  

While shipping has begun on the project, there will be more than a few decks left to sell online and at my various shows. Stay tuned for more info on where you can get your decks . . . 

To the backers - I am truly fortunate to count you among my supporters. I couldn't have done it without you all!!

Weird NJ Presents: Home State Hauntings http://paulmichaelkanephotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/5/weird-nj-presents-home-state-hauntings One of the highlights of 2013 was my involvement with the folks at Weird NJ. Both issues in 2013 featured some of my work, with Issue #40 being the largest display of both my writing and photography with a feature on the Fox Studio Film Vaults. You can purchase a copy of that here and an unpublished gallery to that issue can be found here. Issue #41 featured a smaller write-up on the Spring Valley Christian Church. That issue is available here and a unpublished gallery can be found here

The biggest news out of my growing relationship with the folks at Weird NJ was my involvement with their first official eBook: Weird NJ presents . . . Home State Hauntings. Not only did I shoot the cover to the book - not only did I contribute nearly 50 interior shots inside the book, but I also designed all three version of the book!

Available for the iPad, Kindle and Nook platforms, we've left no one behind! 

What makes this even more special to me is that I included my own little one on the cover. That's right? Peyton makes her third appearance on the cover to one of my projects! You can see more of the cover concepts I designed here
