I have taken photographs for decades but about four years ago became interested in trying to learn more about the processes involved - composition, pre-seeing the image, processing and printing of images. I have derived great benefit from photographic clubs I have joined [see my links page] and particularly from the Royal Photographic Society, which runs excellent courses and sets standards and goals to work towards.
I enjoy all aspects of photography but particularly when my images can serve a useful purpose, whether for personal or charitable work.
Galleries: My galleries here are a mix of family, travel and more serious efforts in photography. I have included my panel submissions to the Royal Photographic Society for Licentiate (LRPS) and Associate (ARPS) distinctions. I have also included some informal images of my long term hobby as an amateur furniture maker.
Photographing violins is a special interest. Some of this work can be seen by following the link to Michael Sheridan Violin Maker on my Links Page.
