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.

Meeting the Neighbours, and Two Gardens

My reason for being outside the house, and with a camera was because of the sound of a piston-engined aircraft overhead that had caught my attention, but I was unprepared, so though I did manage a single shot, it did not merit appearing here, but I will give honourable mention to a young man I met later that morning, who did capture a very worthy example of that aircraft’s flyby. I crossed Station Road, to chat with the two ladies, one being the mother of the lad who took the shot. The mother had called out to me, so I crossed the road and joined them to more easily chat, but still at the required distance.
It was during this exchange that the opportunity to take some photos in my neighbour’s front garden was offered me, which I was very happy to accept, as she has put considerable effort into the flowers that adorn her house frontage.
I had already noted the flowers in the garden opposite, and so was thrilled to capture these blooms at their best, and in such bright warm sunshine. These shots will definitely make the basis of some excellent greetings cards to celebrate birthdays and other memorable occasions in the future. In the short term they appear below as a memory of a welcome break and meeting of neighbours for the Early May Bank Holiday, for which I am very grateful.
The rest of the day was spent preparing these images, interspersed with watching some excellent celebratory television programmes, observing the Two Minutes’ Silence, and a short film about our local hero’s Army career to commemorate Colonel Tom Moore, and his walk that raised all those millions of pounds for our National Health Service, which has now resulted in our Community’s new Blue Post Box to mark his achievement. There was even a commemorative franking of our mail to mark the occasion; so Marston Moretaine is definitely on the map.
