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…

Slumdog Star – Virginia Holmes

Thursday evening had looked somewhat tentative on the weather front, but in the end proved to be dry but cold. I arrived in Leicester Square around five and contacted Glory Holmes the proud mother of our star of the evening, Virginia, the girl who with business partner, Natasha Nischol handled the Hair and Makeup for Slumdog Millionaire, shot in Mumbai.

We took up station close to the front of the Odeon, and soon attracted the attention of the BBC Asia correspondent, whom we managed to convince there was a story here of English Girl makes it in India Film Industry!

It was not long before this family group was joined by Rachel and Mike, friends of Virginia, and Richard, father of our star. It was getting slowly darker as we waited in the cold watching the arrival of the carpet layers prepare the all-important ground for the entrance of the stars. (Watch a trailer at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiQU3Fg1VtY).

Then came Virginia and Natasha, and later the Director Danny Boyle and I managed to grab a few quick shots, sadly not the best, I do not see my becoming a paparazzo anytime soon, certainly not one earning any money at the game! But I do at least have a record of the evening and we all went off and had an enjoyable pizza in a nearby restaurant to end the day, with Richard presenting us all his plans on how to run the country under his governance.
