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…

Another Very Short Walk

This week was scheduled for an end to the Spring Sunshine we have enjoyed for the last fortnight, and began dull with drizzle. So it was to be a day of catching up on cleaning, but the forecast weather was not as dismal as forecast, so it dried up enough for me to consider buying some milk from the local Co-op. 
The walk up Station Road to join the queue put a better light on the day than I had anticipated since on the walk up the road I noticed that the seeds were far more advanced on the trees, and much of the blossom was fading fast, so after buying what I needed, I decided to use the opportunity to get a few images before the rains returned. On arrival at the top of Station Road I had found that the queue had only one person ahead of me, so I walked fast after I had finished offloading my purchases, get back out to return with my LUMIX camera.
During the early minutes of my shooting, a man came up and said he was a journalist who had come to learn more about the Captain Tom Moore who had recently put this village on Britain and the World’s maps by the Funds he had raised by his walk around his back garden! He was enquiring about the background, and was interested in interviewing me, after he had visited the Post Office and Bill the Manager, so I gave him one of my makeshift business cards. So far I have heard no more.
I continued my shooting walk, then returned to process them and write this narrative, aware that despite this being a single page of images, it was almost certainly the last photos I would be taking for a few days with rain and isolation hardly likely to provide interesting or attractive images.
