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…

Late Night / Early Morning Fog

After a day doing some more incidental photography at Luton Hoo's Walled Garden, and having created a gallery of those images, I happened to notice that fairly thick fog had descended on Caddington.

Remembering how effective such conditions were in rendering mundane street scenes more attractive, I succumbed to the urge to try to do something for my own locale. I grabbed a newly charged battery, loaded a card, and put the 12-24mm Sigma lens on the camera and walked up towards the shops, I deleted the first few attempts as having insufficient exposure before settling on an 1/8th of a second at full aperture and 1600 ISO, and felt the four shots in this Flash Gallery were of sufficient merit to upload.

In two of the shots, I made use of the headlights of cars passing by. So Caddington by street lights and in fog is not too unattractive!
