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…

Cambridge & Grantchester with the Bootmans

I was invited to spend the day with Katy, Martin, Holly and Poppy at Grantchester for New Year's Eve. I made a slight detour on my way over, due to my trying to find the reverse direction which my SatNav had been giving for my return journeys. But it was fortuitous in that I spotted some unusual churches along this alternative route. I also managed to carelessly hit a concrete lamppost when parking at Grantchester which means I have to replace the rear lamp cluster and smooth out scratches to the bumper. I feel this justifies my grandchildren's name for me – Bumper! So that's my first expense for 2009!

We all went out for a long walk into Cambridge and had some fun there, and the first shots were of a child sitting on the bench in the Apple Store engrossed in the MacBook Pro (start-em young I say!) Katy and Poppy did their party trick of seemingly walking down a flight of stairs; which always amuses. Poppy just loves soft things and loved the fluffy nightgowns in La Senza. Shooting at 6400 ISO is just so much fun; without any flash, so I also captured both girls playing together in the available light when back at home. We had a curry meal, and I left for home in the early hours of 2009.
