New start – The Riley Shot Blog.

In the last 6 months I have written 20 different drafts of what I was shooting and none have made it to my website. I don’t know if its just me but I must re read my work 100 times until I talk my self out of publishing anything. The main reason I set up my small business and this website was to shoot weddings, which I love, and to show my other work like landscape and travel photography. However, add a 40 hour job, 6 month old baby and editing the weddings that I shoot on the weekend, it doesn’t leave much time for blogging the other shoots I do..

So, I have my new aim, just to blog my latest work and hopefully share some things i have learnt over the years with people who are new to photography, simple really, just show what I am up to and what I’m learning. Thats what I’m going to do. This week you can see my latest portraits and next week I’ll be showing off some of my landscape travel shots from last year, with my aim of adding small blogs each week of my adventures. Now, adventures could be a tad misleading, at the moment I have a 6 month old baby, so I won’t be flying off to the USA again any time soon but I will defiantly be pushing my ability with a few projects lined up. I hope you start of with really simply stuff that I think will help you take better photos, then ideally we could get in to the details and I’ll explain how I learnt these things.

Next week, it will be Yosemite national park from late last year. After that it will be Portraits and hopefully (health permitted) more landscapes, for now I hope you enjoy this weeks blog.

Also, I will be adding a small shop page soon with prints for sale, however, for now if you would like a print please email me.
