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…

A Bitterly Cold Dawn

Eleven Days on from the other bright morning when I found myself covering the Protest March between the villages of Slip End and Caddington, I woke early and I already knew there was a possible bright start to the day. I took a look outside and decided I needed to take some photographs.

I got dressed, collected my camera and a few lenses and wandered first to our newly refurbished Co-op store. Already there was activity; the shutters were up and staff were preparing for the new day, I took a handful of shots, then jumped in the car and drove to Slip End where I took shots of the re-routed Public Footpath and the soak-away for the motorway, before moving towards Luton Hoo and the hill down towards the Lower Luton Road.

I spotted a lone Red Kite gently soaring over the valley and a pheasant took off from behind me and flew over the road; I managed to capture a couple of shots before he disappeared, but in the biting wind I had to wait quite a while before the Kite came into range again, but at last I was able to get some usable shots, even though it remained fairly distant.
