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…

Jarvis Foresters – Fixtures & Fittings


Visiting the Foresters Development this day was slightly less than straightforward as the approach is beset with bright orange plastic guard rails, and the end of the service road is entirely blocked off. The reason for this is down to the number of essential services that are now being brought to the site, and this has involved considerable disruption to both the road itself and much of the pavement and kerbing. Also additional drainage is being added; whilst I was there a fairly deep hole was being widened to take a large concrete sump.

I had already decided that this visit I was going to be using a wider angle lens to capture some of the kitchens and bathrooms as they took shape, and although I have covered some of the more accessible rooms, the smaller or awkward ones needed me to have a shorter focal length than 24mm. What that meant was that my concentration for this visit was more about the interiors and the fixtures and fittings than the groundworks going on.

One pressure I always face is limiting myself to parking close by and avoiding punitive parking fines, by allocating precisely an hour, including donning my PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and subsequent disrobing to drive back. There were other parts of the site I would have preferred not to have missed, but I am in the midst of a massive tech-editing job, which has an effect on time available as well. Anyone know where I can lay my hands on a forty-eight hour day?
