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…

Caddington, Snow & Hard Frost

With sunshine streaming through the windows, it was not difficult to be persuaded out, so without even stopping for breakfast, I grabbed two cameras and set off for a walk around the village. Although I could have gone further afield by car, the roads were likely to be treacherous, the hills especially so, and with a car that now had only an automatic handbrake, avoiding skids is less easy, so a walk was preferable.

I felt that hedgerows and fields were likely to provide interest so I set off for the main road past the church, with a slight detour into the graveyard, where remembrance flowers were overladen with snow, before setting across the fields at the edge of the village. When you looked closely at the blades of grass right out in the middle of the field I was fascinated to see fine tracery of ice crystals fanning out, often with several layers, I can only believe these were created by the wind and fog overnight, and I was early enough to catch them before the sun melted them.

I returned from the field past a BT telephone cabinet, which had patches of snow and frost and  dappled sunshine which formed attractive abstract shapes.
