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.

Brogborough Lake Trio of Windsurfers

Since I was due out in the evening to an event in Tring to publicise the work of Evergreen Africa with an exhibition of photos from a recent Photo Aid Expedition, entitled “From the Heart of Herts to the Foothills of Mount Elgon”.
I had been invited by Vanessa Champion to the fund-raising evening event at a Tring Gallery with an exhibition of some of her photography in Africa for PhotoAid Global and Evergreen Africa. I therefore spent only the briefest of times lakeside, taking shots mainly of a trio of windsurfers who were making the most of the reasonably strong wind which was unusually, heading directly onshore.
Despite this being apparently the least effective direction for anyone jumping, but possibly due to my presence with a camera, and a knowledge of my predilection for dramatic images meant they were generous enough to attempt to satisfy my needs! I do have to own up to have missed some of these events for a variety of reasons/excuses?
I have done my best to get these images displayed as soon as possible to retain correct chronology, but they are somewhat tardy, so I am hoping the audience will accept my apology and accept “better late, than never”!

I will aim to improve… (mind you I could say that should also apply to my planning to set off in plenty of time for my trip to Tring…)
