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…

Now, the Return Trip to Paris



Originally the training trip to Paris was to be between Christmas and the New Year, but Eurostar’s problems caused a change of plans, and made me nervous about the timing of the visit, but it worked out reasonably well in the end, and I was lucky as other travellers suffered cancellations. I kept my camera ready and captured little architectural details and challenged myself to try to capture scenes at high speed through grubby windows as the landscapes of England and France sped by.

Once in Montmartre I grabbed every small break from the computer screens to keep taking photos of life in that part of Paris, and I was amazed at just how many people were out and about in the ice, snow and cold, and at the hours at which I found them, they were outside restaurants on the pavements chatting merrily, and the Sacré Couer Funicular Railway was still running at one o’clock in the morning, though I think it may have closed soon after I shot a punter going towards the turnstile.

I learnt just how versatile is the Canon 5D in near darkness when using ISO 6400! I even found a spot in the area for which I carried a memory from my first ever visit to France, when I was a teenager! However, that visit was in the warmth of Spring or Summer!
