The Clinic – Photo Rehab #4


The Clinic – Photo101 Rehab is back. Here is photo #4. Want to join in this time around?

This week I am going to share some monochrome portraits. And there are more great photos from all participants.

Some of you know that I love portraits. I may also be a thrill seeker who loves an adrenaline high because I make photos of people at airports, streets, without their knowledge. When I shot this photo, I was at the Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

This person was sitting literally on the other side of the high table we both used  to charge our telephones. He may, or may not have bothered while noticing that I was focusing my lens on him. I guess his worries while reading his messages on his smartphone, deserved more of his attention.

I used an Olympus E-M10. ISO 200. 42mm. f/11. 1/2000.  Edition: Contrast (28) and Exposure (-2,05).

And for those who want to know more about The Clinic Photo Rehab, here it is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy TownendMara EasternCardinal GuzmanDesleyJaneJustineAmyTeresa, AlbertTerriGiving ThoughtEllenNalinki, MariangelesDwayCraftsLucyTerriBampa’s ViewsPeaceCraftingDreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “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.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

  1. Thanks for including me!! I’ve been away celebrating Australia Day with an extra long weekend at the beach with family ☀️ I will be getting back into the clinic (and my blog) soonish….


  2. Another amazing portrait! I am intrigued how he is furrowing his brow…what is he looking at? Is he frustrated? Or is he anxious? Or excited? Great shot…I can imagine how you took the photo, from such a short distance and remained unnoticed!


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