Portrait of Luiza at The Clinic – Photo Rehab #12

The Clinic – Photo101 Rehab is an event for everyone who loves photography, and wants to be part of a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to be with. All you need to bring is your passion. Mine is to shoot portraits. Here I bring another one.


This is a Luiza. She was visiting Amsterdam last week and stayed with us. I captured her beautiful and serene expression, while talking to my husband.

I used a Olympus E-M10 to shoot this portrait.

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.

  1. Another beautiful portrait, Lucile !
    Luiza’s pretty expression shows a myriad of possible emotions…. Happiness, relaxation, or maybe nostalgia with a twinge of melancholy? The viewer is brought into this photo and asks him/herself, “What is this beautiful girl thinking about?”
    Lovely, really lovely..

      1. As I write, I’ve got a big cup of coffee in hand!
        Oh wow, what an honor it would be to be a subject for one of your portraits! Thank you for the lovely compliment…
        Happy Friday and happy (early) Valentine’s Day!❤️


      1. You are welcome. I thought of you today when I came across a story about an amazing street photographer from the past named Vivian Maier. Have you ever heard of her. There is a site http://www.vivianmaier.com that tells her story. She has lots of B&W street portraits which made me think of you. I think you might appreciate her work! I found it quite inspiring!


        1. Some notice and say nothing. Now I’m at the park waiting for the sunset as I’m shooting for cardinal’s changing seasons challenge, the same places of last month. Lucky me it’s sunny after several gray days.
          I shot some portraits too and am sure they saw me doing it.

                    1. Sorry, I missed your last comment. Went shooting before the sun was gone. Guess what? It was cloudy sunset!
                      I have a mirrorless Olympus. All lenses are like that. 24mm is 42…etc. yes it’s a tele…
                      Lol I’m thinking about more secret operations for today!

  2. You are an amazing portrait photographer i think this is definitelyw here your talent lies because every person you have managed to get their face so open and so relaxed, not posed in any way it seems. Beautiful and she is beautiful too x
