It is a Wrap – Photo101 Rehab


If you didn’t know yet what the Photo101 Rehab was….

Once WP Photo101 course ended on November 30, some of us started feeling the first addiction’s symptoms, as described by Albert at his blog Passionately Curious.

“Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

I opened The Photo101 Rehab Clinic from 04 to 31 December 2014. Photobloggers added awesome photos

I especially dedicate this post to all photo addicts, who joined in this event: Andy TownendMara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy,  Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving, Project Easier.  I’m grateful for your enthusiastic and fun participation, and for sharing your photos and techniques with all of us. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I invite everyone to check their blogs and their stunning photos. You will not regret.

This collage is just a wrap of all photos. Here is the link where you can still see all photos in larger size. From there you can also go to the sites of the bloggers you want to see more of their images.

Fellow photo addicts, the fun is not over yet. I am perhaps going to keep The Photo Rehab Clinic open endlessly, if you wish, so just let me know. But meanwhile I have great news for you all.

Cardinal Guzman just launched a new event – The Changing Season – and you must check it out and join in!

Here is what he has to say about it:

I decided to have a photo project going throughout 2015 – a blogging event, a monthly photo challenge. One time per month (on the 7th), I’ll be posting a gallery containing 10-20 pictures from Oslo’s city center.

I’d like you to join me on this project: Find a location near your home, take somewhere between 5-20 photos and post them in a gallery in your blog. Continue to do this every month. For my project I’ve chosen the general area “downtown Oslo”, but if you like to, you can choose a more specific area like a park or a building. It doesn’t even have to be a city. If you live on the countryside, there’s probably plenty of locations to choose from nearby: a field with some trees, a beach, a mountain, or just a simple dirt road? It can be whatever. Just keep the project going throughout the year. Try to shoot every month, so that in the end of the year, you’ll have a nice and diverse set of photos in your portfolio. The idea is to capture all the changes: the seasons, the weather, different times of the day, some night photography perhaps?
Also, the idea is to build your portfolio and train your eye. I shot the photos in my gallery in December and next month I’ll post a gallery with photos I’ll take this month (I haven’t shot them yet).

Thank you again everyone! See more of you and your photos soon…

  1. Even though I didn’t participate in your Rehab clinic — mostly b/c I was still finishing Photo 101 in December 🙂 — I have enjoyed the Rehab photos on your blog and the blogs of other participants, Lucile. Even now, whenever I see a group of birds, I think,”Swarm”! Some of those Photo 101 themes will stick with me forever, I think.


    1. Great to hear you liked it! It was a pleasure to have you here.
      I am waiting in vain for a change of weather here – rain, gray and chilly days, strong wind – to go out and make my gallery of the seasons. I surrender and make ugly photos.


  2. I didn’t enter into the rehab clinic (was a bit worn out) but did enjoy seeing all the photos come through and wishing I had got involved! Well done on compiling all the photos and taking the initiative 😊


      1. Great! Sorry for taking so long to reply. With the new notifications, I got pretty lost with figuring out who I’d replied to and who was still in limbo! I need to check out your blog too… it’s been a while!


    1. You’re a honorary co-founder and patient and I will reopen it if it makes you happy. It was a privilege to treat your addiction here! 😉 next one will serve cabbage as perks. Xxx


      1. Ooohh, want! I’m never excited but now I actually am. You’re turning me into a humanoid with feeeelings… But seriously, I do believe that the success of your rehab was great and that it could be sustained in a longer run for the especially grave cases that need longer treatment…


  3. thanks for hosting this! though I was completely absent for the last part of the month it’s wonderful to see so much participation from others! Will have to sit down and look through them soon 🙂 and ohhh very exciting event by the cardinal!


  4. Awe thank you for doing this it was a fab idea! How many entries did you get in the end? It went wild didn’t it? Lol you should show some of the 101 teachers if they don’t know about it already.

    Fab work lovely bubbly Lucile x


  5. Well done, and thanks for the introduction to The Changing Season Project–something that I intended to do (capture the same place over and over), but didn’t complete. Will probably join in a month or two.


  6. Bravissima! I love your collage…And I remember seeing the individual photos in your posts over the past weeks…You should be so proud of the love and enthusiasm you put into your pics and how you inspired others with your Photo101 Rehab!


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
