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.

Front Garden Pollinators

The day started overcast, but bright and cool for the second day after the hot sweltering days of the preceding week, and as I took lunch I noticed that the hoverflies were out, so I was tempted to grab my camera and the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 with Vibration Control to see whether I was correct in finding this focal length more suited than Canon's 100mm.

However the hoverflies were not in the mood for hovering and were not as abundant as I had first thought, however the sun was finally burning through the cloud cover and this had brought out three types of bee to my front garden and also a couple of butterflies, the ever present Cabbage White which definitely always was flighty, and a small brown butterfly which I later discovered was a Gatekeeper – rather apt considering it was my front garden, but it invariably kept its wings folded, only rarely opening them, and often just as I had moved close enough to see detail, it would open them and flutter off! However patience and determination prevailed and I did catch some fleeting glimpses of its full spread.
