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…

DigiCluster Summer Gathering— Clock House

  I drove to Product Designer Peter Carr’s home in Harpenden to collect him and drive on down to around Hunton Bridge the home of Clock where the DigiCluster Summer Party was being held in the gardens of an erstwhile Schoolhouse.
  Above were somewhat thunderous looking clouds, and on the journey down there had been a few drops of the wet stuff, enough for me to give the wipers the occasional flick. However, we do not appear to have troubled the gods, for the entire evening, despite the few drops on arrival, the sombre clouds passed us by, leaving us a warm and welcoming evening. We were not the earliest arrivals, but we had arrived in good time, and whilst I sorted out my camera, Peter was already in conversation with other guests.
  Although I can never be sure of the full content of many of the conversations, certainly many definitely displayed interesting interactions and much good humour, and I did manage to capture some of these, even if I was not party to the content, but I hope some of the participants may well relive the repartee where I have strung together the elements of the flow and expressions I witnessed. One really animated interchange of conversation I even considered separating from the whole, but decided to simply edit it further but leave it within the gallery. Also, to avoid unnecessary delay in getting it up to the blog, I made no alterations to the flow, and so the chronology is true time-wise, and hence runs out of content on the final page. Once again I was using the Canon EOS R, and relied entirely on the available light, which served me well.

  Thank you to all who prepared and supplied the delicious food and drink; when Peter and I left there was enough left unconsumed to hold a further banquet, I do hope that not too much was wasted. I hope that the images in the gallery help to remind everyone present and reprise some of the joy and interest in the event.
