The Clinic – Photo101 Rehab is an event for everyone who loves photography.
Here is photo #10. Check below how it works.
If I can, I shoot people’s portraits when observing them in public spaces. This lady was taking the city tram, together with another woman. They sat in front of me at the back of the car.
I had my camera in my bag, and in few seconds I set up my ‘studio’, shooting many times during the ride, as I wanted to capture her expression when not talking to her friend. Sun rays were my studio lights, changing as the tram moved.
I chose two shots to share with you. The first is a rougher one, made when there was no direct light on her face. She may look sad but she wasn’t; this serious look had to do with the subject of her conversation.
The second had sun light straight on her. I used Lightroom to work on the overexposure on her face and also the contrast, because I liked her soft and caring look on this photo.
I used a Olympus E-M10. Photo edited at Lightroom.
Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:
This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming 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 x 7 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.
