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…

Walled Garden Lens Check!

I have been toying with the dilemma of which lens to get to cover what I consider to be the mid-range, and have finally plumped for the 24-105mm Canon f/4 lens.

I was aware of some of its shortcomings, having spoken to a few of my my professional colleagues. It does suffer from barrel distortion, but the amount is such that I can consider relying on the correction controls in Photoshop to take care of this in the most needy cases.

Today's visit to Luton Hoo's walled garden was therefore as much a lens testing day as one where I recorded the volunteers' activities and the flora. I used no other lens the entire time I was there, and was very pleasantly surprised by how close I could focus.

I felt the lens very much proved itself, I hope therefore others can enjoy the shots I captured.
