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…

Aircraft Movements & Preparation for Shooting Interior Panoramas

On days when the sun is in and out of clouds, and the brightness changes from Gloom to Brilliance it is difficult enough for me to capture consistent lighting and colour balance, but even more difficult for the photographer with whom I am working. He is trying to capture the interior scene throughout 360 degrees, for panoramas.

Space was tight out on the pan, so once we had papered over the windows whilst within the hangar, Harrods Aviation personnel were preparing to move one similar jet into the hangar, so that ours could be towed outside in its place.

This involves the incredibly manouevrable and powerful Ferrari-red electric tug which moves close to the nosewheel, then clamps to it and winches it aboard a small platform and so lifts it off the deck for the tug to takeover the steering. Two marshals then watch the wings as the aircraft is carefully swung out from its parking slot and into the hangar. It is then unhitched, and our newly prepared executive jet is taken out into the intermittent sunlight for the day's shoot.

As this is the sixth aircraft to have the photographic treatment, things run smoothly and three more 360˚ panoramas have been shot by London photographer Ben Rice for his client; several of which have taken place at the hangar of Harrods Aviation at Luton Airport.
