April Newsletter Header

Hi Folks and welcome to the DPC newsletter for October 2020.

  1. The October newsletter theme is “Warm Colours”.
  2. HDR & RAW Course on Sunday 4th October 2020
  3. NEW! Welcome to the DPC Zoom Club
  4. Private Tuition Upgrade Offer

The October newsletter theme is “Warm Colours”.

In a way this could be considered a follow on from last month’s tree theme, as the trees are changing into their Autumnal wardrobe, but don’t just think of foliage. This could be an opportunity for a harvest festival picture or a bunch of ripening tomatoes.

Virtual HDR & RAW Course on Sunday 4th October 2020

It’s no secret that I love to shoot into the light and many of my images include sunsets with detail in the foreground. Many of these pictures are achieved using High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography techniques. This will be a two part course where we will cover the camera settings and techniques first then you will have a two hour break to go out and take pictures. Afterwards we will edit these pictures over zoom.
Contact me by email or us the poll on the on the Facebook group.

NEW!  Welcome to the DPC Zoom Club -
A brand new venture is the new premium content DPC Zoom Club. Think of this as an online camera club where you will receive the same great training in bite sized chunks.

These take place after the usual 7pm DPC Snap and Chat and run from 8pm until about 9.30pm. The meetings are recorded and these will be available for subscribers if you miss the course.

Premium Content for Sbscribers
For the first two weeks non-subscribers can pay £10 on a per session basis so you can try it out. After 10th September the premium content will be available for monthly subscribers only at £40 PCM.  This works out at less than £10 per week as some months have 5 weeks. Subscribers will have access to a password protected members area where they can access all the recordings and any handouts.  

Individual recordings will be available for £15 per session a few days later for non-subscribers.

Private Tuition Upgrade Offer
I’m finally starting to run live 121 private tuition courses but sadly I still cannot run any group courses due to the two household restrictions.

If you have pre-paid for a course, and it’s possible to run as a 121, then I do have a 121 upgrade offer. Contact me for details.

Upcoming Virtual Courses

Luminar 4 as a Lightroom Plugin and Stand-alone program and Lightroom Replacement.

Luminar 4 is a fantastic Lightroom plug-in which also works as a standalone program. It’s an amazing piece of software for anyone into landscape photography or portraits. As a standalone program it is possible to use it as a replacement to Lightroom for those that don’t want to pay the Adobe subscription.

Luminar Landscape

Here is a 5 minute landscape edit in Luminar 4 with a sky replacement. I have probably pushed this a little far for demo purposes but I have to say it’s far simpler to achieve this is Luminar than it is in Lightroom and Photoshop.
