matters of opinion

hello - i'm rick harvey

Apertureprioritynz.com is my space on the ‘net where I share photography-related stories and many of the images I take, and as my blog title suggests, I shoot primarily in aperture priority mode.

I often debate with myself whether this photo blog drives my photography, or whether my photography drives my photo blog. Whichever way round it is, I take photographs for fun, and my primary goal is to create pictures that please me – and if they please you when you come to visit here, then that is so much better.
