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.

Update 14 / 15th January… (message only — Don’t click This Headline, if you do, just click the back arrow)

           Hello to all those who are still looking at this blog, I am grateful for your persistence, I am heartwarmed that the blog is still being visited despite this hiccough in my ability to actually get any pictures up currently.

           I hope that I can somehow get my output of photos back for all of you loyal visitors. Currently, I am stuck trying to get this sorted, so, if any of you have the expertise to help me get up and running, I will be eternally grateful. Especially, as for every day that passes and the weather allows me to venture out, and take yet more pictures, the situation is adding to a back up of galleries that remain unpublished, and my frustration grows. Since I live in isolation, the inability to resolve the situation is causing me acute frustration, and so far despite generous help from my kind Web host, we have yet to regain the link.

           Setting myself targets during this period of isolation, is an essential strategy for me to exercise my brain and to avoid stagnation. I think it is this need to keep capturing images which has been with me from when I was at Technical College after leaving school, through my five years in the RAF, till I trained at the Elephant and Castle and Regent Street Polytechnic in photography and started full time with a photographic studio in Hatton Garden, I have never lost my enthusiasm to take photographs. Many of my colleagues have had careers as photographers, yet only as a job, for me it is my life, and I am lucky to have several friends who feel the same, and there is a stronger bond with them. I know many people might find some subjects I capture strange or unusual, and sometimes, that was the reason!  I remember a film titled: ‘I am a Camera’ and although the full plot now escapes me, I often feel that sobriquet has resonance personally, in that my tastes are definitively catholic with a small c.

           There is a Search box on the page that I often suggest to those wondering about what I capture, and due to the way it works can be bizarre on occasion, but if some subject comes to mind, give it a try, it can be sometimes direct, at others obtuse, so for variety, you could enter: Scotland, concert, Digicluster, kite, butterfly, windsurfer, London, Clerkenwell, cars, clouds, Kingfisher, Grebe, Stockwood…
