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 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, as well as Sales for a leading London-based colour laboratory and has trained many on a one-to-one basis, in the UK and Europe.

Still a pre-release tester for Adobe in the US, for Lightroom and 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…

Sawston Village College Concert 2014

Catherine alerted me to the Sawston Village College Concert, being held once again in the West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge, and this time both girls were to be in the Samba Band, and Poppy would also be playing her saxophone with the Sawston Saxophone Sound.

Last year I gave my 100-400mm its very first outing, as I only received it the morning of the last concert, but I learned from that evening that there were times when I wanted a wider view, so this time I also took the 70-200mm. As before I arrived early enough to get a position as far forward as possible on the left flank gallery, and there is fortunately just enough light to shoot at 6400 ISO with manageable shutter speeds to ensure most movement was captured effectively.

I had not yet cleared my 32GB cards of shots taken in India, so I foolishly omitted formatting any of them and chose to work with the space available, forcing me to change cards, which meant that when I started to create the gallery, I completely failed to spot I had missed most of the Samba Band shots. This means I now have two separate galleries and the chronology of the concert is lost unless I start again. I have more pressing things to be doing, so two galleries it is!

Here is the second.http://www.fntn.co.uk/rodwp/SawstonVCC14-2
