Welcome!

Hello everyone,

After much deliberation I've decided to start a blog, so here goes...

A little bit about me;

Joe Riley, 28, Senior Press Photographer for a regional daily newspaper



This is me... perhaps it's best I don't explain.

I live in Cumbria, UK. My hobbies include motorcycling, rock/metal music and eating...mainly oranges.

So the reason for my blog is to share with you all some of my work, thoughts and influences. So I'll start with something I shot today...

I got told to get a shot of a girl who started a cinema club at the local theatre. I'd seen a Dan Winters pic with Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt in which I liked, so I set about having a go at copying it. I didn't have a 8 ft octabox, a studio or a room full of assistants. I had a bag full of portable gear and about 15 minutes...



I used a single snooted sb-800 at the back to act as the projection light, then lit their faces with a shoot through umbrella complete with black cover on reverse to turn it more into a softbox. Basically just trying to control any spill.

More tk...
