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.

It seems like a long time ago now, that fellow photographer, Toby Savage and I went to the Revival Meeting. Although not much of the last fortnight has been spent on paying work, I have been very far from idle, hence how ling it has taken to get these galleries up.

On the day we made very good time to arrive at the venue at around a quarter past eight, especially when Toby had driven down from Leicester. It was cloudy, but this did not dampen the spirits of those around us, everyone seemed happy to chat and before we had even entered fully we had already had several interesting conversations. We had also eyed up fascinating cars and admired the ladies and their costumes.

Once inside, we made a beeline for the Richmond lawn to say thank you to Lord March's Office girls who miraculously saved the day by sending the replacement tickets which I can only presume still lie in some Post Office Sorting Office gathering dust. The first aerial display began as we walked towards the Aircraft Display. The sun however was very reluctant to come out fully, and later due to time alterations the Vulcan appeared mid-race which coupled with low cloud was able to make less of an impact than it deserved.

Toby who modelled his outfit on a picture he had of his grandfather from the 1920s made a great show of being the Pukka Sahib and so I have devoted one whole gallery to some of his posing and a group of his son's friends.

In the Brooklands and Richmond Trophy races there was some splendid driving to watch with considerable excitement, and in another race; the RAC TT Race, Paul Drayson's E-Type Jaguar, car 20, performed a spectacular 360˚ spin directly in front of us, and was rewarded in that lap and the subsequent one, with rounds of appreciative applause from the crowd.

Lord March also introduced Buzz Aldrin and Stirling Moss, both were made very welcome by everyone, the Band of the Royal Marines also played and paraded.

Altogether, another thoroughly enjoyable day at Goodwood.
