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.

Earlier Images at Goodwood Festival

            Although the images in this gallery were taken before any of the last entry on my blog, they were not processed because I was too hasty in selecting the card that was still in the camera! There is now a further apology for me to make — I have run out of time if I am to get these images out with any sense of timeliness! To get them out at all, I could waste no more time in cutting even more from the overall total.
            Please therefore accept my apology, however in my defence to a small degree, I did make an effort to do justice to some of the participants where a sequence conveyed the level of skills of some of the participants taking to the air on bikes — PEDAL bikes! I have to say that I spent more time shooting these particular participants, because it was a chance for me to attempt to master the skills of keeping them in frame. I find that using a mirrorless camera less easy to track moving action than a reflex camera. So, my interest was two-fold — admiring and recording their skills whilst honing my own.
            My day at Goodwood was spent very enjoyably, both from having the full day with my elder daughter, and in being outside in glorious grounds with no shortage of different and interesting activities. I did not shirk the opportunity to climb to the top of the hill to visit the Forest section, but my timing was poor in that regard, as there was a lull at the time we spent there. It was interesting to glimpse the future direction being taken to attempt to mitigate our damage to our environment.
            In my earlier entry regarding this day, I mentioned that all the pictures were taken using just the one very versatile lens from Sigma, I still feel it worth a mention in relation to the images in this gallery, as I was really pleased with using the EOS R6 on my lightweight monopod with this impressive Sigma lens — the 60-600mm, and impressed I could heft it with comparative ease for the entire time! The versatility of this lens is impressive, so all credit to Sigma, especially since I have also found it’s performance with either the 1.5x Converter, or the 2x when the light is favourable, put this lens in a league of its own.
