The Intermediate Course is the natural progression to your Beginners Course for those who want to better understand exposure and how their camera works. It is a Level 2 Course so we do ask that you attend our Beginners Course first.
If booking the Beginners / Intermediate Weekend please ensure there are spaces available on that weekend’s Beginners Course.

Filters and kit required for the Intermediate Course
The DPC Filter Kit – From £45 – Buy Here
I’m constantly being asked to recommend filters for various courses so I decided to finally source my own set. I usually suggest buying filters from Amazon but some of their filters of variable quality and the sellers fluctuate so it’s difficult to provide consistent links. Several students have suggested I should sell a filter kit and so that’s what I’ve done.
The “DPC Universal Filter Kit” consists of a UV, a Polariser, an ND8, an ND64 and a close up +2. To keep things simple I’m initially only buying these in a 62mm filter size, to suit my recommended Tamron18-270mm, but the cunning plan is to also include a 52-62mm stepping ring, for Nikon users, and a 58-62mm stepping ring, for Canon users. We also have a 82-77mm Kit.
Stepping Rings allow each filter to be used on a wide variety of lenses and save money in the long run by not having to buy multiple filter sizes. The UV filter is there for protection while the ND8 and Polariser is required for the Intermediate Course. The Close-up filter will help to prepare people for the Macro Course. The ND64 can also be used on the Intermediate Course and is a six stop filter which will allow you to get great pictures of flowing water. (See below for seaside example)
There is also a 82-77mm option for people with the 10-20mm (24mm) wide angle lenses at £60 which contains all the same filters except the Close-up.
NEW! There is also a 58-67mm option, at £45, with the same filters as the 62mm kit, and a 67-62mm and 67-58mm stepping rings. This is useful for people with the new Tamron 16-300mm or any lenses with a 67mm filter thread.
Please note the 72mm and 82mm Kits do not contain a Close-up lens.
Save Money with 58-62mm and 52-62mm Stepping Rings
To make this kit as useful as possible it includes two stepping rings. These are used to allow the 62mm filters to be used on 52mm filter thread Nikon lenses and 58mm filter thread Canon lenses as well as my recommended 62mm filter thread Tamron 18-270mm.
There is also a 72-67-62mm and a 82-77mm option for people with the 10-20mm (24mm) wide angle lenses or some larger lenses at £55 & £60 which contains all the same filters except the Close-up. This is to keep the costs down as the larger steppings rings and close-up lens add a lot to the price.
If you were to buy this 62mm kit as individual quality filters from Amazon it would probably cost you about £112.
