Interview with photographer Daniel Doyle Pleasantville

Daniel Doyle Pleasantville photographer is a skilled professional who enjoys sharing his gift with his clients. He recently left his studio in Queens, New York to return to his hometown of Pleasantville, Ohio. Daniel Doyle is a skilled practitioner of the art of photography, lending his talents to weddings, events, families, and studio work.

Daniel Doyle Pleasantville attended Ohio State University, where he majored in photography. After college, he decided to take a gap year in Europe. He traveled throughout the continent by train, enjoying the varied architectural and natural sites. When he returned from Europe, he decided to start his professional photography career in New York City.

While his career in New York was successful, Doyle found himself missing the charming atmosphere of Pleasantville, his hometown. He also wanted to connect with his family and to give back to the community which had given him so much when he was younger. His move to Pleasantville heralded a new era in his career as a photographer.

What are the most important influences on your career as a photographer?

When I was a teenager, I saved up for my first camera. I took many photos in high school and showed them to my art teacher. She suggested that I go into photography after graduation. I also worked for the school newspaper and yearbook, taking photos of groups and special events. I would say that my high school teachers had a huge influence on my career because they encouraged me to take the leap into becoming a professional photographer.

My gap year in Europe is another major influence on my career. After I graduated from Ohio State University, I decided that I wanted to spend a year taking photos of the amazing historical, cultural, and natural sites in Europe. I traveled everywhere on the train, in some cases taking a bus when trains were not available. I saw the Alps, Italy, France, England, and Germany, among other countries. When I was in Europe, I learned a lot about lighting and composition.

While I was abroad, I started a photoblog which became popular. This helped me break into professional photography when I returned to the United States.

Where is your professional focus?

I have a broad skillset and I try not to limit myself to restricted focus areas. My photography studio offers studio, portrait, family, wedding, and event photography, along with videography. I am self-taught when it comes to videography, but my clients enjoy my work. I truly love helping people make special memories and preserving a special day for posterity.

I have recently added high school senior photos to my resume. I help young students express themselves and their interests through portraiture. My fashion photography background really helps me in this case.

Why did you leave New York for Pleasantville?

Pleasantville is my hometown and I have been missing it for several years. When I was younger, I wanted to get as far away from home as possible, but as I’ve gone along, I have been more interested in exploring my family connections and heritage. I made a number of good friends in New York, but I always felt like an outsider. In Pleasantville, everyone knows me and my family. It has made it much easier for me to get work in the local area.

There is truly something to be said for returning to your roots. I enjoyed the fast pace of New York City life, but I was ready to step back into a more relaxing life. I have had a lot of fun spending more time with my parents, siblings, and cousins.

What are some of your favorite photography tools?

Adobe Lightroom is the program I use most often. It is an intuitive program and it helps me edit and compile my works. I also use a tablet and stylus to help with some fine-line photo edits. My favorite thing to do with Lightroom is to explore a photography subject from every angle.

As far as cameras go, my favorite is my Nikon D5. It is an amazing camera with many special features that make it perfect for my work. Of course, I have a large collection of lenses and other photography equipment to make my job easier.

What advice would you give to young people who want to work in creative professions?

First, don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams. You do need a solid business plan to make money, but beyond that, you need to explore your own interests. Don’t let anyone bully you into going into a field that you aren’t passionate about. You will always regret not having explored your creative side.

Arque: Artificial Biomimicry-Inspired Tail for Extending Innate Body Functions

For most mammals and vertebrate animals, tail plays an important role for their body providing variant functions to expand their mobility, or as a limb that allows manipulation and gripping. In this work, Arque, we propose an artificial biomimicry-inspired anthropomorphic tail to allow us alter our body momentum for assistive, and haptic feedback applications. The proposed tail consists of adjacent joints with a spring-based structure to handle shearing and tangential forces, and allow managing the length and weight of the target tail. The internal structure of the tail is driven by four pneumatic artificial muscles providing the actuation mechanism for the tail tip. Here we highlight potential applications for using such prosthetic tail as an extension of human body to provide active momentum alteration in balancing situations, or as a device to alter body momentum for full-body haptic feedback scenarios.

This work was accepted for SIGGRAPH 2019 Emerging Technologies
