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…

Afternoon at the Pirton Open Gardens Day

Before leaving the Stockwood Transport Show, John and I went around the Discovery Centre where I warmed myself up for the afternoon shooting in Pirton, at their annual Open Gardens Day, and what is the first thing I do is photograph an old motorbike!

The first garden I visited belongs to an artist, Maggie Barton, whose house and garden are a delight, she seems multi-talented as she sculpts, makes mosaics and stained glass objects and if I heard right, also paints. In her copious free time she also tends her compact garden. Entering through her front door I then went into the small circular area around a tree, the garden was I believe the best tended of all those I visited, and her other work was to be seen all around.

I did my best to visit all the gardens, but that was a tall order having arrived at around half-three, and in all there were gems, and I hope I have done justice to what was on show, I even spotted a fairly un-shy pigeon at the end, I also spoke to some interesting people and one other photographer whom I may yet meet again.
