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.

Happy Christmas to all or any Readers of this Blog

          Keep Safe, Healthy, Optimistic and, try to be Happy. I hope at least this entry will see the light of day, but I have made several forays into fresh air and taken photos but, currently am unable to publish them, which some visitors might have spotted, as one narrative has been put up and taken down several times as I have been unable to make a successful link to its picture gallery.

          Onwards and Upwards! All the Very Best Wishes for the Future, unfortunately I have yet to fully resolve my issues involving my inability to add new galleries, and there are now several waiting to see the light of day, and since I have taken delivery of the EOS R6 body and begun shooting with it; it promises to   offer improved burst rates, and in particular today, Christmas Day, we had a splendid sunset whilst my elder daughter and I took a late walk across the fields for some exercise and fresh air.

          Overall it promises faster burst rates for coverage of wind- and kite- surfers on Brogborough Lake, and would seem to offer advantages for my bird photography too. However, in order to obtain these gains I need to spend some time trying to make these operations simple, and second nature; some presently, involve two steps, whereas I need reduce these to a single operation. By way of example, if I swiftly wish to alter the focus area, I have to first ensure the setting is live, then make the change, then take the shot, I need the repositioning to be ‘live’ such that once altered I am ready to shoot.

          Already, I am highly impressed with the low light sensitivity and how fast it achieves focus under such circumstances, so I can see myself taking advantage of the promised forecast for Sunday.
