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…

The George IV, Amwell, Hertfordshire

I travelled to Amwell Nature Reserve hoping to improve my skills at capturing images of the bird life, but was once again disappointed by my results, but when it came to leave, I wandered back into the village past the church.

I took the opportunity to take shots of some of the scenes that greeted me along the route, and soon came across a small pub, The George IV. There were two family groups outside sitting beneath a fully laden magnolia. Not wishing to embroil myself in model releases, I simply took shots of the signage and flowers. As I was leaving, I came across the landlord to whom I showed what I had taken.

We got talkng, and eventually this led to my taking further shots in their enclosed garden area, and the table decoration and one of his charming daughters, who gave me permission to use one here. At some date in the future I may well get to take some shots to decorate their walls within, and take some interior shots…
