Guest blog: Jeanne Goodridge on Photoshop, and the work of other Shed Artists

I have finished my photoshop course today & can't wait to get started on working on some of my images, looking forward to altering them to look more like art pictures. It's amazing what you can do in this program so watch this space. I have always just wanted to take the photo & not alter it in anyway but now feel the buzz to do something different. I love the way Moya Paul works with her photos....

I have looked through all of The Shed Artists' in the hope of choosing some to comment on - so many great photos, I don't know where to start! Here goes:

Chris Daubney for his wildlife - a subject I also love photographing whilst travelling in America.

Rob Reeks, The Shed: whilst on my last trip I was finding loads of old falling down buildings to shoot, such character & trying to imagine who used to live there..

Many thanks indeed to Jeanne for all of her input this week, and for these reflections on the work of some of our other Shed Creatives! It's great to use this opportunity to get a bit of a dialogue going - so do comment and respond, let us know what you think of these works, which images would you have chosen? And why? Please feel free to wax lyrical... :-)
