Welcome

I am Rod Wynne-Powell, and this is my way to pass on snippets either of a technical nature, or related to what I am currently doing or hope to be doing in the near future.

A third-person description follows:

Professional photographer, Lightroom and Photoshop Workflow trainer, Consultant, digital image retoucher, author, and tech-editor for Martin Evening's many 'Photoshop for Photographers' books.

For over twenty years, Rod has had a client list of large and small companies, which reads like the ‘who’s who’ of the imaging, advertising and software industries. He has a background in Commercial/Industrial Photography, was Sales Manager for a leading London-based colour laboratory and has trained many digital photographers on a one-to-one basis, in the UK and Europe.

Still a pre-release tester for Adobe in the US, for Photoshop, he is also very much involved in the taking of a wide range of photographs, as can be seen in the galleries.

See his broad range of training and creative services, available NOW. Take advantage of them and ensure an unfair advantage over your competitors…

Goodwood lives up to its sobriquet – Glorious!

One can only presume that Lord March has some divine connections – how else can he have had good weather on all three days of the Revival Meeting amidst the dismal weather we have had over the summer?

As on every occasion that I have been fortunate to visit Goodwood, the atmosphere was one of incredible good-natured enjoyment from everyone, visitors and staff alike. One cannot praise enough all those who were in positions away from all the excitement who nevertheless wore smiles of genuine enjoyment. I was a little disappointed by the amount of discarded cups and packaging that the members of the public disdainfully left behind for others to clear later.

I came down to Goodwood via Rickmansworth where shortly after six-thirty I picked up Patricia and Nick Rayner, and later met up with Keith Duerden and son in law. The trip was delightful as we watched the mist dispel and the sun rise, offering the promise of the good weather we encountered once we had arrived. As a result of being part of a loose group, the day was very varied and this shows in the disjointed nature of the pictures I took, but it was great to be able to work entirely with just the one lens all day long on the Canon 5D – the Sigma 150-500mm optically-stabilised zoom. For some shots however it might have been handy to have had another body with a shorter lens attached, so I could be found walking backwards to be far enough away to focus!

Now much as I love my Canon 5D, I am considering offering it for sale to allow me to step up to the MarkII version, which sounds absolutely fantastic. After raiding savings to buy that, my eyes are now watering for something in the middle of the range, but having generally been blessed with over-secreting want glands, I have to also consider other upgrades such as a MacBook Pro, but in keeping with everyone else, I have been totally unsuccessful in propagating money trees!

Anyway for my close family and a few colleagues unable to attend the meeting there is another gallery of images from the day. Do enjoy.
