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…

Aylesbury Concert Band – Aylesbury Methodist Church

This was designated the New Year Concert for the Band but the weather proved not to be too helpful as it was cold and drizzly with snow forecast which tends to put people off attending which is a shame.

I arrived reasonably early and managed to park almost opposite the church which is always a benefit. The church has a horseshoe-shaped upper deck which because there was only one young girl up there, I had the opportunity to take photographs from different angles, and working from above means there are fewer obstacles to the view of the musicians.

The amount of light was also a benefit, but the one drawback was that I was visible and could cause distraction to those playing, I would have liked the back lights to be off so that I could not be seen.

The repertoire was varied, ranging from Sousa and Verdi in the first half to Strauss, Elgar, Hess and Gershwin in the second, and much to the delight of the audience the Radetzky March by way of an encore and I have a delighted lady clapping to that to end my gallery.
