My updates and uploads are going to be pretty random as I feel this site is more for my artistic endeavors that I want to share with everybody.

... and my real life has been getting in the way of doing some of the things I love. Let's just say that I'm not the only person who is extremely happy that 2014 has come and gone as it was a sucky year. 

Been playing with a new Photoshop program, Filter Forge, and I've been really happy with the results. 

As always, comments and constructive critiques of my work are always appreciated. Or if you really my stuff, some of it is available for purchase. (wink, wink) ;-)

A fractalized image of a Sumatran tiger. This is from a new software/tool I'm experimenting with. More to come.

Sumatran Tiger (fractalized)
Another one of my animal pics - a Sumatran tiger - run through the Fractalitious filter. Took forever to mask out the tiger because of his whiskers and furry edges. But the results were worth it!
A fractalized image of a a Harris hawk. New software/tool I'm experimenting with. More to follow.

Harris Hawk - Fractalized
Original image is one of my Harris hawk photos. Run through Filter Forge's "Fractalitious" filter.
Springtime Poison Ivy by greyloch-md
Springtime Poison Ivy
One of my cosplay friends, Lucid Cosplay, in her rendition of Poison Ivy with springtime colors (pastels). Despite the color scheme, this female is much deadlier than the male. ;-)

Image was finished with Filter Forge's "Dreamy" filter which gave the image an overall softer feel.

Jack of all trades. Pretty much have done every odd job there is. Photography and digital art is my hobby and how I express myself artistically. I like to think I'm pretty good at them and always looking to improve my skills.

I call my approach to photography (especially cosplay) "Gonzo." Not in the pornographic meaning of the word but in the, "improvise and fly by the seat of your pants," definition. I get there, do quick compositions, take a couple of pics, have some fun and/or entertain/flirt with the cosplayers/models, and move on. Bing-bang-boom, done! I don't have a lot of gear (diffuser, ring-flash, tripod, and remote trigger) and use them sparingly. My personal nitpick is with photographers who travel around with walking studios. IMHO, I think you lose a lot of the fun and spontaneity of the moment when you bog yourself down.

I like constructive criticism. Please respect the models.

I have no real plans for world domination. Trust me.

Current Residence: Just outside of Washington, DC, USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: XXL
Print preference: Minion Semi-Bold Pro
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Rockin' Blues, Jazz, World, anything that has makes you feel something when you hear it
Favourite photographer: Ansel Adams, but I'm just delving into photography so this will probably change... radically
Favourite style of art: I really like Art Nouveau and the Beaux-Artes movement, ornate but organic
Operating System: Mac OSX
MP3 player of choice: iPhone
Shell of choice: tortoise
Skin of choice: my own?
Favorite cartoon character: too many to list - my ultimate wish is to be a cartoon as some point
Personal Quote: Friends help you move. "Real" friends help you move bodies. And books.
