Photography Meetup: Follow, Bend or Break the Rules? - Greenwich - 10am - 2 hours
We so often think of Photography as a transparent window to past events or as a tool to record them. Photography is everywhere: your phone screen, magazines, news, etc. It is so ingrained in us to think of it as a representation of the real world, but does it have to be that way, does Photography have to be about things it represents?
This session will invite you to think outside the box and provide you an opportunity to experiment in unconventional ways artists use photography to convey an idea or provide an alternative way to see and understand the world through observation.

Class content:
This class will take place in the form of set tasks to be completed. For each task, you will be given 30mins to walk around the area in a group of fellow students focusing on a different idea each time. We will start the class with a short briefing explaining how Photography is used to make objects look good following various composition rules, but because this class is about turning away from traditional ways of looking at objects, you will be given a sheet of ideas and how to 'bend the rules' in order to convey an idea, atmosphere of your choice.
During the entire class, you will be supported by an instructor and be provided with a sheet of inspiring ideas and guidelines to follow for each task.
At the end of the session, we will be sharing our best photographs and share the feedback and advice on how can you develop your ideas further.
This class is suitable for any level of photography skill as this session focuses more on the ideas rather than technicalities.

Architecture and Abstract Photography - City of London - The Royal Exchange - 10.30am - 2 hours
The major principle of architectural photography is the desire of documenting the world around you.
The deep relationship with the space around you can be described through photography creating original compositions and different perspectives.
In this meetup we will be focusing on the following:
-Straight-on perspectives and perspectives with 2 and 3 vanishing points
-Choice of focal length and impact on the distortion of the perspective
-Composition, viewpoint and framing, respect of verticals
-Camera settings (shutter speed, aperture, iso, white balance)
-Control of focus (manual and automatic)
-Exposure bracketing to manage contrasts between high and low light

Beginners Photography Class - Hyde Park - 10am - 3 hours
Photography is not the only way to capture the world, but it is undoubtedly the most effective to record what we see. Photographs are everywhere: magazines, book covers, your social media feed, old albums. However, just the way not every posted note is a piece of literature, not every photograph has the power of the work of art.
Whether you are looking to improve your aesthetic language by taking control of your camera's manual settings or you are just thinking of a new hobby Ė it is always best to get the best result prior to editing and digitally manipulation of your photographs. And there is no better way to do that, than knowing how photography works.
In this class, we will cover all foundations of the technical knowledge you need to start to take professional-looking photographs.
- Starting with a briefing on 'What is Photography' and what is the role of light in it.
- How does your camera react to light and how to manipulate your camera settings according to the quality of light. (This part includes 3 practice exercises focusing on ISO, Aperture, and the Shutter speed according to the light meter built in your camera)
- Explaining and practice to get the right White Balance
-Composition tips
-How to get sharp images (Autofocus, selective focus, manual focus)
Throughout the entire class, you will be supported by our professional photography instructor and you will be provided with a sheet of ideas and guidelines to follow for each task.
At the end of the session, we will be sharing our best photographs and share the feedback and advice on how can you develop your practice further.

I really enjoyed the session. Tuba Doner is an excellent tutor. even though we went through technical things she brought into our meeting ease, calm and fun. she is easy to understand and I have learned a lot in that short period of time :: she made clear connection of technical stuff I could not get for ages.

Flora was really knowledgeable and patient with us beginners. She was very helpful and gave us challenges and lots of feedback, and tips for the future. Lots to think about! We benefitted from some dropouts in our session so that we had even more 1-on-1 time with the instructor than we normally would have. Flora was very encouraging.
