Welcome to the London Photographic Adobe User Group!
London Photographic (Meetup Group) is a fully established meeting place for likeminded Photographers; we have been around for over 6 years and have increased our membership to more than 3800 with new members joining daily. The focus of the group is to be everything around Photography, including the use of cameras, lighting, the Adobe Photoshop family (Photoshop, Elements, Lightroom); professional photographer talks and inspirational/creative activities such as our monthly photo walks, posing workshops, themed shoots, and studio and off camera flash workshops.
We have a progressive calendar with an active support community and try to hold a minimum of six meetings a month for our members to participate in. We also have strong links to the active professionals within the UK photography market, who are always keen to come and speak at our events.
We are applying to be a certified Adobe User group for multiple reasons; 1) We are passionate about the craft of photography and are striving to stay as the largest Photography Community group in the UK. 2) We would like to have a closer relationship with the Adobe brand in the UK and become almost independent ambassadors. 3) We would like to grow our group in different directions; being closer to Adobe in this way will potentially help us to achieve this and move into other sectors, i.e. film and video where we can help members to further explore their creativity in moving images and the editing processes.

Events - London Photographic Shoot in Manual Mode - Full Creative Control - May 23
This session is aimed at those looking to achieve complete control over their images & will focus exclusively on using your cameras 'manual mode'.
A basic understanding of shutter speed and aperture will be useful for this session.
Whilst aperture and shutter priority mode are great for most shooting situations, you will at some point come across a lighting situation that will trick the camera into producing a result you didn't intend. This is where you will find shooting in manual hugely beneficial to your photography.
The benefits of shooting in Manual mode include:
The ability to expose for tricky lighting situations that would otherwise fool your camera
Achieving a particular effect – depth of field/motion blur
Achieving consistence in every picture you take
This session will simplistically break down and explain the basic elements in creating a great photograph using practical experiments so as you get a firm understanding of how each factor of the exposure triangle affects the others.
These factors are:
· Shutter speed
We will also look at using the cameras built in exposure metre and the different metering modes we can use to get a correct exposure.
There will be plenty of hands on shooting in this session and you will leave the session with the confidence to start using Manual mode to add a new level of creativity into you work.
A tripod will not be needed for this session. Please answer make and model question needed for planning.
