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…

2CV Lomax Kit Car & Autumn Colours

My nephew Alex and I planned to meet up so he could take me for a ride in his latest acquisition – a Lomax kit car based upon a Citroen Deux Chevaux chassis and engine.

I pulled up at the house and there it was before me. There was nothing I recognised as a 2CV! To all intents here was a Morgan sportscar lookalike! I started taking shots of it before I met up with Alex, and the dogs soon attracted his attention and I was hailed from an upstairs window.

We then walked the dogs, chatted and I took pictures of leaves that took my fancy before climbing (literally) into the car for a trip to the Royal Standard of England pub; one of probably several laying claim to be the oldest in Britain!

When we pulled up in the car park, off came the bonnet cover to check that all was well in the engine compartment and that no leaks had appeared since Alex's recent overhaul.

There I got into conversation with two American photographers from New Hampshire, who later came outside to take shots using a wooden Pinhole camera, and we had quite an interesting chat before they left.

We both had a Ploughman's and Alex decided to check out their Spotted Dick; interestingly the waitress brought an extra spoon in case I wanted to share the sweet, but I declined, I was full enough.

We set off back to the house and then I was allowed the honour of taking the controls – the first and maybe the only person to be allowed the privilege, and for the first time Alex was able to see and hear his vehicle from the outside, and was massively impressed with what he saw and heard.

There was rarely bright sunshine, but for a late October day, the weather was exceptionally fine, and I was thrilled to capture some of the essence in the gallery of images that accompany this entry.
