Hi and welcome to the DPC Newsletter for February 2018.

I have a lady wanting a 221 Portrait Course on Wednesday 14th February 2018. We do have a group portrait course, with six students, on Sunday 13th May 2018 but it's an opportunity to gain at an extra two hours tuition.

I've also just added - Intermediate, Portrait, Macro and HDR Courses to the website.

If you haven't joined the DPC Facebook or Flickr groups then you can still do so by following the links below.

Courses and Dates


February Project - "See Through"

The February project "See Through" so I would like you to photograph through something transparent. This could maybe be something like a glass of bubbly or rain on a window.

As always let you imagination run free and don’t forget to upload your images to the DPC Facebook Group.

Iceland

The Night Photography Course will be on Sunday 11th February. This very popular course will show you how to take pictures at night without using your flash. The course starts at 2pm and ends about 9pm. It includes a light supper. Your own tripod would be helpful but we do have a couple of spares.

The course includes: portraits by candle light, buildings at night, car light trails, writing with light, painting with light, the northern lights and lightning plus some trick photography.

Weather permitting, we should also be able to photograph the moon and maybe even some stars.

Creative Lighting Course Sun 11th March 2018

This is a great fun course where we take pictures of water droplets, peppers splashing into water, smoke trails and any other silliness we can think of on the day.

We also show you how to use other light sources, like candles, torches and Christmas Lights, to create bokeh effects. It's the ideal course if you would like to know how to use your shiny new flashgun or just fancy some nice pictures for your kitchen wall.

A flash extension cable or remote release for your flashgun is very useful for this course and you will also require a tripod but we do keep a couple of spares.

The next Intermediate Course is on Sunday 25th February 2018 is so I've added an extra one for Sunday 25th March 2018.

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 £12-15 each or they are included in our exclusive DPC Filter Kit.

DPC Filter Kits now available

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 Filters for Landscape Photography Course.

If you were to buy these filters individually they would cost over £90 but they are now available from just £40 for the 52-62mm set or £50 for the 77-82mm set. I've also just added a 72mm set.

You can order your kits here - http://www.digitalphotographycourses.co.uk/Universal-Filter-Kit.html


We hope you have enjoyed this newsletter.
