Two week whirlwind!!!

Two weeks into being a dad, what a great feeling.... I obviously don't want to change the purpose of this blog by turning it into a lifestyle blog. I promise not to flood this blog with hundreds of baby pictures. That being said having a new baby in the house provides ample oppurtunities to practice some portrait photography.

Nannys Hat & Sweet Dreams

I am really pleased with my choice of purchasing the 50mm f1.8 lens as the shallow DOF allows for much simpler images with no background distractions.

In addition to the whirlwind of becoming a dad I was also accepted as a contributor to This was following a review of three images and a short test (relating to copyright, model release(s), and image quality).

I am not entirely sure what my intentions are with this but I relish the chance of having some of my photographs used for commercial purposes and possibly earning a few extra quid here and there to help fund what is quickly becoming a very expensive interest.

As things are getting back to normal and I am hoping to get out and about this weekend around the Snowdonia area to grab some lanscape shots whilst it is nice and cold. Unfortunately none of this will be of any interest to istock but it will be nice to get out and about again. Watch this space.....
