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…

I wanted to find out whether I could gain a benefit from using a tripod and Acratech head in gimbal mode to shoot windsurfers in action, so I made a trip to Brogborough Lake and set things up.

It certainly took the weight which was a major benefit over shooting handheld with a long and heavy lens, but I think the Wimberley is likely to be a better bet, as with the Acratech, the friction is still too great. At the time I did not have the funds for the Wimberley, but I think that I am going to have to dig deep and get one to get the most out of my longer lenses.

I did however get some reasonable shots and was able to consider lesser shutter speeds due to the extra steadiness.
