Hi and welcome to the DPC Newsletter for April 2017.
Shooting and Editing RAW Files
Lightroom Courses Sun 2nd April & Sun 16th July
Most of my Lightroom and Photoshop courses are run during the week but I've added two Sunday courses, by request, for 2nd April and 2nd July 2017. We only have one space left for the April course but we do have more spaces on the July course.
Lightroom CC is constantly evolving and new features are added every month. It also intergrates seamlessly with Photoshop so we'll use it to create a logo for you to add to your exported images in Lightroom.
Beginners Lightroom Course
As you become more confident with you photography is's a good idea to consider shooting in RAW. This is especially useful for landscape photographers as RAW files contain much more information which can help to keep detail in the skies. To get the best out of these RAW files though you need to edit them in a RAW editor. like Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom. Picasa just treats RAW files like JPGs so you will not be able to recover this extra detail.
Lightroom CC includes Photoshop effectively for free
Many students have upgraded to Lightroom CC, which effectively includes Photoshop for free, so this Lightroom Course will include how to integrate Lightroom with Photoshop. We will look at the Lightroom workflow, from importing your images in the correct format, the filing system, editing and getting the best from RAW files, exporting for print or Facebook and how to use the various LR modules. We’ll also use Photoshop to design a logo as this will demonstrate a lot of really useful PS techniques.
Intermediate Course on Sunday 18th June 2017
Anyone attending the Intermediate Course in the future will require a a Polariser and a ND8 filter for the course. These can be purchased from Amazon at about £11 each or they are included in our exclusive DPC Filter Kit.

These kits were made especially for us so they are not available on eBay or Amazon. They have been put together to cover a wide range of photography skills and they will be required for the Intermediate Course and the new Filters for Landscape Photography Course. If you were to buy these filters individually they would cost over £80 but they are now available from just £35 for the 52-62mm set or £48 for the 77-82mm set.
