Trooping the Colour 14 June 2014

  • This location is shown only to members

Shoot the Queen! (with a camera, GCHQ/MI5, with a camera).
Whether you are an ardent royalist or just want to let out your inner Paparazzi, this annual parade will be the ideal event for you.

The parade goes from the Palace to Horseguard's Parade, and back, followed by the flypast is at 1pm watched by the Queen from the Palace balcony.

 

We will be meeting early to grab our spaces, and photograph people and preparations before it all starts - otherwise all you will photograph will be the back of tourists' smart phones.

Please try to arrive on time but if you are late ring Alex 07956 264049.

Check TFL website for any delays that will affect your journey on the day.

    I was there, a friend could not make it so she gave me a ticket in the special enclosure (front seat) on the parade ground.

    Another great day. Thanks Andrew! I admit I was going anyway (already had it in the diary) but always a better day with London Photographic. :-) These popular events with large crowds always ends up a random scramble at the end no matter how much we may try to keep together (I lost most of you and ended up standing on my camera bag for the balcony shot!). The great thing about going with LPMG is having people to chat with during the inevitable wait, drawing from people's experience on best shooting spots, camera settings etc, and the chance to make a new friend or two. Looking forward to seeing your pics! Best wishes, Dion.

    I got lost at the end; neither police knew clearly what was the plan. A policeman told me to go towards a post where 'were opening the gates' (I wanted to see better the Royal Family on the balcony). It was false..I got stuck together with hundreds of other people (probably they got the same info). Anyway, nice experience with a nice group. And, Good to See again Betty (even if she doesn't appear in the list :-) )

      Same here Enrico - we got trapped to and in the end Angela and I ran as best we could to get on the Mall for the fly past but we were halfway down it so missed the balcony moment...lovely chatting to you!

    Hello everyone
    Please be on time tomorrow as we will be moving off to find places on the dot
    The weather looks like overcast or cloudy but not too cold - but please bring something in case of rain
    Check the TFL website, at present the jubilee line is fine north/west of London Bridge, and the circle line should be working.

    Hi Alex, what type of lenses you think are more likely to be used from where we'll shoot ?(wide-angle,[masked]-200..) Thanks Enrico

  • Paul D.

    Sincere apologies Alex, I am not going to be able to make this meetup. I was really looking forward to it as well. Ces't la vie :(

  • Andrew M.

    The parade will be closest 2metres (6-7ft) at closest, so advise a reasonable zoom lens - the "fastest" you have (ie the one with the biggest maximum aperture allowing a high shutter speed - see http://digital-photography-scho...­)
    The pictures above were mostly with a[masked]mm Canon
    No tripods etc, as we will be in a crowd

    The £3.50 covers the cost of the website and group insurance. LPMG is a not-for-profit organisation, and we organise these meetups for the love it - I certainly don't get paid anything!

      Sorry Andrew, I didn't mean to say anyone was making profit, it was just a genuine question as I'm part of groups that have no charge whatsoever and tons of others that charge 3.50 making it actually look like a site fee, but because I've seen free ones I then wondered if this was really the case and why some are paid and others are free...

      April 25

  • Priscilla J.

    Just a quick question.. what is the £3.50 for?

    April 24

  • Pete S.

    I'm coming (transaction id: t3UH90241CK782361B)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
