It is Spring: Photo 101Rehab

I used a Olympus E-M10

The Clinic – Photo101 Rehab is an event for everyone who loves photography, and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with. All you need to bring is your passion. Just so you know, mine is to shoot portraits and street photography.

Some of you asked me if only photographers can join the Photo Rehab… Of course not. Hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious about photography, anyone is welcome. What are you waiting for? Check here to learn how it works.

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. That’s wonderful. Feel welcome.
      Just open the post again and scroll down the message until you find info on how it works.
      It’s very simple: post your photo and add it to the link you find in my post. Cheers.

  1. This is a fantastic photo! How long did you have to wait for this scene? Beautiful capture!

    I have a question about the rehab clinic… When I link to your post, should I link to your most recent one or the one that says the clinic is open?

    1. Thanks Terry. I didn’t need to wait much as they were playing without seeing me and I made several shots.

      You can link to any of my posts. Whatever is easier for you. And don’t forget to add the photo to InLinkz.

      Cheers.

  2. I LOVE this shot. Did they know you were photographing them? Taken with your camera? I’m not quite sure what “street” photography is, but if this is it…I’m now into it too!
    And, I’m so bummed I don’t have time to do all the things bloggy that I want to do now. Like Rehab! I barely get my Photo 101 shots in (and have to do the whole week’s worth in one post).

    1. Thank you. No, they didn’t notice me as the birds got all attention. I was sitting diagonally from them and that made easier to shoot endlessly.
      I’m not sure of what street photography is because I read that there are different lines of thoughts among photographers who claim to know what is it. All I read brought me to conclude that it looks like discussing global warming, religion, politics, etc.
      I’m a photography enthusiast so I follow my own definition. Street photography includes people and their behaviors in the streets. I read their moves and imagine their life stories. I like story telling.
      You can create your own too and start shooting. Although I see that already in many of your photos.
      On another note, you don’t need to create several posts to participate in challenges. You can combine two goals in one post. Your photo 101 photos can be linked to any similar challenge with a pingback.
      The Rehab is even easier as there is no set prompt but your own.

      1. For me, it’s usually better if they don’t know you’re shooting, looks more natural. And, COOL…so if I’m in the street and take a photo, that’s street photography, eh!! I’ve been doing that for years! Do you think dirt roads count? Alleys? Rehab—so if I just add a pingback to my post, it will show up somewhere on your site (in comments, or where)?

        1. For me too. I sometimes ask, but most of the times I make it from a certain distance so that I capture spontaneous expressions.
          Well, that is my definition of street photography. Read this from the masters. https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2015/03/18/street-photography-perspectives/
          According to me, dirt roads and alleys count!
          Yes, just add a pingback to any of my Rehab posts. It will show up in comments.
          Besides, I’ll add your photos to the link where all other photos are stored, if you want that others can see it too.

  3. Alrighty then! We’re on the same page! And those guys in that DP post on street photography didn’t really have a consensus, so alleys and dirt roads it is! Thanks for that. There are a number of other sites they offer, I’ll get to them at some point.
