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.

Sunny BrogLake

          The Lake at Brogborough again sees some action, as Sunshine and Wind favours the Sailors. The overall activity this year seems to have resulted in a level of calm, possibly allowing Time to savour the opportunity to enjoy the moments for longer.
          I had made the decision to use my Lumix camera on this occasion, which also offered the opportunity to work without the camera being mounted on a tripod. I am trying to weigh up the freedom from the fixed viewpoint against the response speed between the two very different cameras (my Canon which with its far weightier body and lenses, always mounted on a sturdy tripod, versus the featherweight Lumix with its zoom lens permanently attached to the body.) The major difference, beyond the obvious weight variance, is the burst rate – my Canon is faster! But, when the light is bright as on this occasion, the freedom from the tripod is welcome.
          I did not have long to wait before Sam, with his Kite Sail had taken advantage of the wind, to take to the air! But this was ‘a blink, and you missed it’ moment, rather than sustained flight! Later a pair of Geese flew over, and were able to display their ability to easily maintain grace when in flight, though their effort expended at Takeoff was more energetic! Almost immediately after spotting the pair of Geese, the sky celebrated by displaying a rainbow against the darkening sky. Turning my gaze away from the Lake at that point allowed me to catch a group chatting, before I brought my eye back to what was happening on the Lake.
          A few more were now making their way back onto the water, and once again in the lulls between obvious activity, I was again taking opportunities to capture Clouds; one of my endless fascination at their various forms, as anyone visiting my blog will probably already have noted!
          As numbers on the Lake dwindled, I realised that the time had come for me to head back, I am sorry that it has taken so long for these shots to appear on the blog, but as I have occasionally said before; Life has supervened!


  1. Love these pictures Rod, it was lovely speaking to you today on the phone! I've saved your blog to see more! Keep moderately sane!

  2. I love the rainbow photo with the geese
