I'd just like to give you a few details about myself and how far I've come.
My name is Matthew Reilly and I am a photographer from Perth, Western Australia. I was given my first camera as a present for my 17th birthday. The camera was meant to be for casual use and as an upgrade to our family camera. I became the designated 'photographer' in the family with my spankin' new Nikon D90 and kit lens.The main purpose for it was to take better photos of my art but I quickly took another path, researching for weeks and weeks at home and during school about what ISO, shutter speed and aperture was. I would always think "Imagine when I actually know how to use these settings and change them all at the same time for whatever I need". I even remember searching the internet on how to change to 30 second shutter speed for some 'cool' and 'hip' light painting photos.I would always put my new photos against my old ones and see that I would just somehow make progress.Every time I take a photo I look back to last month and there's improvements.I don't see how someone can't stop improving if they keep giving it time and effort.So this website is more a timeline of my improvements and merely a showcase of my works. I hope it's niceeee :)
