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…

Luton Hoo Walled Garden's Pumpkin & Apple Gala

Great weather and good promotion brought large crowds to this autumn event at the Luton Hoo Estate. The extended car park between Harpenden and the Airport roundabout in both directions was testament to this! The warmth was not only from the sun, the atmosphere was one of jollity, and the children and parents seemed to enjoy the stalls and the entertainment provided by the Morrris dancers, band, singers and players. There was even a wandering Minstrel!

The Fire engine drew a steady stream of visitors where children were eager to climb aboard and to don a Firefighter's helmet.

The attendance must have surprised and delighted Charlotte Phillips and her team of volunteers, and helped swell the coffers to aid the restoration of the gardens to their former glory.

I have tried to capture something of the day, but photographs from ground level do not tell the story of the sheer number of visitors who attended, though for a short while I did manage to borrow a small step ladder to give me a slightly higher viewpoint, thanks to the generosity of the Fire Crew.
