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…

23rd June 2011 Jarvis - Foresters Development

Arriving at the site in sunshine on a day when showers were forecast is not necessarily a good omen, but all I experienced were just a few isolated drops on just a couple of occasions, fortunately towards the end of my visit.

The main change was the addition of some of the wooden roof trusses going up to the left end of the site. Another point of note was how almost every spare space was filled with stacks of insulation panels! I learned this was to beat an imminent price rise!

To get a better idea of what was going on across the site, it was once again worth a higher viewpoint which meant climbing to the third platform of the crane, because the mesh of scaffolding precluded getting a good view of the progress of the brickwork from the ground.

In the basement, the array of pipes was further advanced, with bays beginning to be built, whilst outside the crane was helping move pallets of breeze blocks and preformed trusses around the site and the forklift truck was resiting some of the insulating panel stacks.

However, scaffolding planks were being transported by hand from where they had done their job at second floor level in one area and were now needed in the left hand corner of the site, just above ground level.
