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.

Easter Sunday, Stockwood Country Fair

The Discovery Centre in Luton hosted their Country Fair on Easter Sunday, and my daughter had mentioned that there was a very interesting character, Ray Smith demonstrating the craft of making a straw beehive, known as a skep. However, for some reason, he did not appear, but I met some of his colleagues and got chatting and was shown some modern wooden ones that could be built from flat packs of wood, and I learned a bit about how they were constructed and why.

I also took a quick trip around the gardens to see how they were growing and watched a flying display of a vulture and owl, but because my intention had been to photograph a craftsman at work and possibly any flowers or plants of interest, I had left my 100-400mm lens behind, and really the 24-105mm was less than ideal to make the most of the aerial display!

I rounded off my trip by a very cursory glance at the exhibition of the Visions of the Universe exhibition, but I will visit that at a later date, when it is less crowded, but it will be well worth a visit as the images and their stories are fantastic.
