Point of View : Photo 101Rehab

I am submitting these photos to the Tech of the Month Event: Point of View from Perelincolors.

She asked us to do more than just placing the camera in front of our eyes and take a shot without giving much thought to the composition. I moved closer,  I knelt down, I sat down and I lay on the floor,  to use different points of view (POV).  Unbeknownst to me, my husband shot some of my awkward moments…

I am also posting here at the Photo101 Rehab, the event for everyone who loves photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious about photography, anyone is welcome), and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with.

Check the photos below and also to learn how the Photo 101 Rehab works.

Knelling down on the floor. Hey, I’m not that tall.

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. I love those pictures for the photo clinic. I wish I had the time to join, my camera cries each time I look at your blog 🙂


            1. Let me know whenever you are ready and I’ll help you out. It’s simple. You shoot without a prompt. You post. You can even use a normal post of yours with a photo and refer it to the photo rehab with a pingback. Then you add the photo to a link. But I can also do that for you.

  2. Great shots Lucile! I really like the one of the seagulls; the quality of the water, the angle of the pier, and the gulls receding into the background, but I think your husband may have upstaged you with a bit of human interest photo journalism on the photographer… Including the photos of you photographing is a really nice touch!


  3. Excellent. I love the shots of you doing everything you can to get the shot!! I’m forever lying down to get a shot. It’s the getting back up that’s the problem. LOL


  4. Awe! Your photos are excellent as ever, I fancy especially the original POV of the tulips. The seagulls are amazing too… Most of all I love your not-really-awkward moments – it just shows that you give everything to shooting 😉


  5. Lovely photos Lucile. I am especially in love with that one of the tulips. And I was thrilled to see my name on your list of rehab patients 🙂 . Expect to see more of my in your clinic 🙂


  6. I love that first shot the most. I read where you were describing to that woman how to post to Rehab, and I remembered that I keep forgetting to do that when I post. And I don’t get the last part about “add the photo to a link”


      1. Oh…right, got it. Hey, I just changed my theme to Motif, same as yours. But I can’t figure out how to make each post look like a separate unit (Grid display). How do you get it to display like that?
        And…here’s a tricky one: how do I make all the posts already posted go to the Grid style? I’ve asked the Support folks twice, I don’t know what they think I’m asking.


            1. At any given point of the text you can insert ‘read more’, making the break at that moment. Then you continue writing. In the home page you will show only up to the point you inserted the break.

              1. OK…it worked. You are like a genius, huh! BUT…now I have to go back through ALL my posts and add that thingy.

                Oh…but here’s the next issue. How do you get posts to display in your menu area under individual headings…like Stories or Challenges?


                1. Great to hear! Do you know that Apple calls their engineers Genius?
                  I’m one too now, thanks!

                  You may need to do one by one, I am afraid.

                  Ok, got it. That one can be done in two ways.

                  You can create static pages or create categories that work as pages in the menu area, but which give you total flexibility.

                  Each time you post, you assign a category for your posts as well as tags, right?

                  You can group them to show up in the menu. I can send screen shots again to you.

                  How many pages you want to create?


                  1. Yeah, I don’t know how to “group them to show up in the menu.” They used to show up there, but now they don’t! I want a number of menu pages, one for each topic I’ll write about. And Sub-topics within those main topics. Like a main page for Holland, and sub-pages for Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Texel.


                    1. Then you need to use categories as menus. It as bit more of work to do.
                      You do that once though and after that it will be an automatic process. Each time you assign a post to a category it will show up on your menu.
                      I will prepare a screen shot for you, ok?
                      Meanwhile you may want yo check this for other features.


                    2. Dear Genius
                      I’ve seen those words before–use categories as menus. That’s what I don’t know how to do, or set up. I have items in my menu, but no posts go there.


                    3. Did you get my first email? That’s how it looks like.
                      Are you using the new version or old version of the site?
                      Yes you get to dashboard via my sites.


                    4. You up? Rise and shine. Ms G…my blog be got menus up the wazoo. It gots menus inside menus. I’m an organized dude, now. But it’s a manual thing, I have to go back and redo the Categories on each post (if not already right). THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I owe you one. Or is that like six?


                    5. Yes, am since before sunrise. Oh la la. That’s fantastic news.
                      I’m going to check it out.
                      You’re most welcome! Pleasure to have done a good thing and perhaps have guaranteed my place in heaven.
                      Like six? Make it ten. 😉
