     I am not quite sure what to say,  to start with because it’s going to be obvious  i’m severely dyslexic  so my spelling is awful.  I’m photographer,  are used to be electrical surveyor.  I have one child left at home  keeps me busy as she has ADHD. 
     The main thing that gets me down is the constant pain of a back injury,  and frustration of having this change in my life and of course like everyone else was not planned for.
     Not quite sure that’s what people say when they join your group

     My main piece is the work of timebased projects so it’s more our art stuff.  Enjoy all sorts of photography cameraless, alternative processes,  large format,  medium  format.  Digital /analog.
    it can be a lot of fun and hard work.  I also enjoy doing my own developing and printing both colour and black-and-white.
     What type of photography do you like

    Sounds amazing! I am still pretty new to all the technical terms but I love capturing moments that are too often missed. Just natural, go with the flow attitude and I’ve been practising with the NHS staff at my rehab as they have a board up ready to put everyone’s photo and who they are. Can you recommend d any editing software? :)
