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.

Marston Moretaine – Front Gardens and Roadside Flower Boxes

             Station Road could be described as the main floral route through the village of Marston Moretaine, especially at this point in time, after the rains and following sunshine. April is renowned for showers, and as I took a walk at lunchtime with my camera, it was because of my observation earlier that a sudden spurt had taken hold of my privet hedge requiring a heavy pruning, that caused me to look slighter further.
            I brought along a small rubberised groundsheet, so that I could kneel to to choose a low viewpoint close to the flowers that were to fill my viewfinder. I had chosen the 100mm Macro, but in case I needed a wider angle lens, I took my camera case along to have access to a 24-70mm and hold the groundsheet.
            I had already asked permission earlier to visit one garden, and seeing a lady tending her garden, and seeing some likely floral colour, I enquired of her too, and she kindly also gave me permission, and having taken a couple of shots duly showed her the results on the back of the camera, I took a further couple of shots and was about to leave when she suggested there might be shots around the back, and there were two more subjects there, so I thanked her after showing those results, and moved further up the road looking for more signs of late Spring sprouting.
            There were a few more stops on the way to the house that I had spotted two days before and where the ‘Love Lies Bleeding’ were where I had already had approval to enter their front garden.
            The resultant gallery from this walk which took me up towards the shops and left, for a few gardens before the return trip to see whether I had missed any items of interest, and with a slight detour via a path to the far end of the Squire Road cul-de-sac and back in to create the gallery, the result follows.
