About John Sheldon club

John Sheldon

From: Leeds, Yorkshire, England

I am a busy grandparent who tries to find time for making pictures and loves looking at and learning from other people's pictures.

My own pictures seem to be the way I express my relationship with the world, images of the things I see and the way I see them.

Processing is done using a desktop PC with a 23" monitor configured to 120 candelas, white point 6500k and gamma 2.2. Software is SilkyPix and Affinity Photo software, and an Epson Perfection V750 scanner.
