Hi and welcome to the DPC Newsletter for March 2018.

The March project is "Feathers and Fur". See below for details.

I have one space left for the Creative Lighting Course on Sunday 11th March, a few spaces for the Portrait Course on the 13th May plus I've added another Intermediate Course on Sunday 20th May 2018.

Flash Photography Course. I've had a request for a flash photography course so I will be running one of these during the summer. I like to run both a Canon and Nikon version of this course if I can get the numbers. The big question is who would like a flash course and which camera and flash do you have? Please contact me if interested.

March Project - "Feathers and Fur"

The March project is "Feathers and Fur" so I would like you to photograph one of your furry friends or birds. I know we have a lot of serious wildlife photographers in the group so I'm expecting some amazing images. You can always submit pictures of your pets if you wish.

As always let you imagination run free and don’t forget to upload your images to the DPC Facebook Group. You could also upload to the 52 Week Project. See below.

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 25th March Intermediate Course is full so I've added an extra one for Sunday 20th May

Anyone attending the Intermediate Course 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 -

We hope you have enjoyed this newsletter.
