Downward Dog by greyloch-md
Downward Dog
Crystal, one of the Timber Wolves at the Smithsonian National Zoo. She had just woken up from a nap and was stretching out; her pose looked like the "downward dog" yoga position. :-)

Sad Cat Diary by greyloch-md
Sad Cat Diary

We are baby-sitting my mother-in-law's cat (Lucy) for the next week or so. She found a box, crawled inside it, and was just the most pitiful - yet cute - cat ever. 

 

She stayed perfectly still and let me set up my camera about one foot away from her. This particular photo was taken on the high-speed sports setting with a ½ second exposure. She also held still for other pics with a 15 second exposure but I liked this picture the best of the bunch.

Queen of all She surveys.. by greyloch-md
Queen of all She surveys..

Lucid trying out a throne chair at a booth at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. She said it was quite comfy... and that her dogs wouldn't be able to chew it up. :-)

 

I added two vignettes (one dark, one sepia) to the photo to give it some extra richness and depth. I also modified Lucid's purse (a bright sky blue) to a gray-brown in order to make it blend in better with the color scheme of the photo.

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.
Interests
Found out that one of my photos was just used in an article by NYC Magazine (on-line edition), "Top 10 Reasons to Visit New York City."

I guess people like my photos? I'm humbled that my work is being well-received and amused that the photo they used was of the mega toy store, FAO Schwartz. I'm a pretty big toy geek so it's an appropriate choice. :-D
