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…

Stockwood – More to Discover


The Forecasters got it wrong. Well, either that or the sun was very shy this Saturday morning.

I also got it wrong – somehow I thought there was a wildlife photographer just giving a talk; I had no idea that it was a day's course for a group of a dozen photographers who had all booked for the session with Derek Henderson. So having stumbled in late, I stumbled back out again, giving him my sincere apologies, since I had only allocated a couple of hours at the Stockwood Discovery Centre before moving on to Luton Hoo's Pumpkin and Apple Gala.

Sadly due to my back giving out that was a trip I never made; I had great difficulty and a lot of pain when I tried to get low down and then get back up again. But I soldiered on to get as many shots in and around the centre. I was amazed to see so many flowers still in bloom and even raspberries were still to be found on the bushes.

I also learned just how small Venus Flytraps are, they are tiny! I managed to spot a squirrel actually in the act of burying a chestnut, and was pleasantly surprised that he did not mind my recording the event.

Even though milky sunshine was the best that was on offer, the range of colours was a joy to behold. Before leaving I visited the Couture restaurant and had a very reasonably priced cup of tea and a biscuit, and was heartened that it was well attended. This centre is somewhere for which Luton should be justly proud.
