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…

Fish Restocking at Tringford Reservoir

Today I met up with Bob Menzies down at Tringford, so that I could capture the restocking of the lake, and I just arrived in time for the delivery from Bibury. The driver had to drive into the water on this occasion as the level in the lake was so low.

It took a little while as he had to be sure he would not sink too low and that he could reverse back up the slope, because of the drop at the edge. As it happened this did not present a problem.

I took a few shots to establish the scene then clambered on to the back of the trailer so I could capture the release from a good vantage point. It was over very quickly, which I had been warned to expect. After being paid, the driver reversed up the hill, and I then went into Pit Marshal mode (I spent thirty years as a marshal for the BRSCC, covering motor racing events all over the country) to ensure he got safely into the road and back on his journey to his next client – in Peterborough! I hope his load of trout were not too seasick from that trip.

From my point of view the only disappointment was the lack of sunshine.
