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.

Citroen B24 – A new Coat of Paint

Sunday heralded a surprise – Lizzy phoned to ask whether she might come over. What a silly question! I was delighted, especially as she said she was setting off straightway. An hour or so later I received a text which read “Just Leaving. XXX” I had begun to accept that this might be the case and replied with “Your tea is cold.” and a short while later: “I presume that was to give me time to tidy up?”! We spent some time in Luton shopping, chatting and chuckling. I had also been invited to dinner at Glory and Richard, once I had learnt he was back from sea where he had been First Mate on a Sailing ship plying the American Easter seaboard, So after our lunch together I changed up a gear and got myself better dressed for my evening with my sister in law, Richard, her husband, and friend ‘Uncle Tom’.

Upon my arrival Glory was cooking venison, and so as Alex was painting his fully stripped down racing car, the Citroen B24, I took off to see how he and Scott were faring. I came across them towards the end of the day’s toils, and took a few shots of the pair of them working and the separated chassis and bodywork, and noted evidence of their having already begun the celebrating of their handiwork! Scott was very keen that I show the reflections from their hard work on the penultimate coat on the bodywork, so after a shot which really did show strong reflections from a skylight when it was undercover he insisted we manhandle it out into the open. I duly tried to capture the high gloss outside, and then we had to carry it back under cover, and it was seriously heavy!

Alex is hoping that by close of Tuesday it will be complete, and he plans taking it onto the Continent again for a holiday.

The pair cleaned up the paint they had acquired on themselves and we all went back to the house for a thoroughly enjoyable dinner.
