Meet the People of Photo101 Rehab – The Clinic

In December 2014, after completing the Photo101 course, I opened the Photo Rehab Event in this blog, a ‘healing clinic’, for all of us who love photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters and enthusiasts) who missed the course and daily interaction with other photobloggers.

The Photo Rehab became our community to share photos, learn from each other and connect.

I am very happy and proud of the super talented and inspiring bloggers, who joined the Photo Rehab and make this event worthwhile by sharing their stunning photos with everyone’s followers.

It is time to update you on the new developments of the Photo Rehab, to introduce you to all participants, as well as to share a snapshot of their latest photos.

The featured image belongs to Desleyjane, one of the Photo Rehab’s ‘patients’!

UPDATE

Thanks to two ‘patients’ of the Photo Rehab, we added two new features to the Photo Rehab.

Blogger Perelincolors, features the Tech of the Month, every first week of each month. Perelincolors shares photos that she uses to test and learn photography techniques. She is covering basic rules and giving practical and valuable lessons to all of us. So, don’t be shy, we are amateurs, eager to learn and share with you what we have learnt.

Blogger Desleyjane from Musings from a Frequent Flying Scientist, features the Image Rebootat the 2nd week of each month. Desley loves to experiment with post processing photos using LightRoom. Every month she brings a photo and gives a very easy, step by step explanation on the editing process. Even my grandmother, if she would be alive, would be able to learn from her.  You don’t need to use LightRoom and can use her tips in any editing tool you may use.

Stay tuned and join their monthly feature. It is fun to learn from these über skilled and talented photobloggers. 

New features 

Starting on Sunday 21, every week I will share a wrap up of the participants photos and introduce the new ones.

From July onwards I will add a new feature to the Photo Rehab: A themed challenge. You will hear about it in a few days!

HOW TO JOIN THE PHOTO REHAB

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7

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. 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.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy, 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 does it work:

  1. Shoot a photo.
  2. Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Pingback to this post and to use the tag #PhotoRehab so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
  3. Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
  4. Here is the link to add your photos. Knock the wall of the Clinic… and click on the image below:

  1. Sounds like an interesting development, Lucile (but a lot more work for you?) I made it around maybe half of the people you feature and hope to get to the rest. Can’t quite get my head around what kind of photo (or sequence) I would need to launch into Rehab so maybe a theme will give me a nudge. 🙂

    • I was surprised to see many new participants when preparing the post . Not all of them left a Pingback on my blog so I wasn’t aware of their photos.
      It’s not more work because the participants add the photos themselves to the link.
      The wrap up is adding work but it’s my way to thank and recognize their time and contribution to the event.
      The new feature will be themed exactly for what you mentioned. Many people asked me for that as they didn’t feel at ease without one. So we will have both options.
      I’ll reduce my blogging activities in other blogs’ challenges to dedicate more time to this event.
      By the way, today I visited the baby of one of my best friends, a Polish Australian lady. I thought about you.

      • Thank you for thinking of me 🙂 It’s a little odd for me because I don’t usually have problems with knowing what to post. I generally prefer not to be ‘directed’ and to post what I feel. I think that it’s my lack of technical knowledge inhibiting me. I seem to be moving increasingly in a photographers world and feel a bit of an imposter.

        • My pleasure! Interesting to hear that. I also don’t like to direct anyone (and vice versa) but I noticed in the blogger world that people feel unease with free writing and no themes for photo challenges, mostly asking for instructions.
          If you feel like an impostor, we all should join you because none of us is a photographer. So, relax and don’t feel inhibited. Your photos are wonderful. And by the way you don’t need to make a special post for the rehab, most of us combine photos with our writings and add to the rehab.

  2. Wow 41 of us now, that’s amazing. I see we are over 500 posts in the clinic now and that is truly a wonderful thing to see. I joined WP just as Photo101 was starting and then you opened the clinic straight after so for me it’s always been there. Thank you again for starting it, I’m sure my photography skills have improved because of the clinic and I absolutely love coming across a scene and thinking – this would be great for the clinic!! I’m looking forward to hearing about the theme! You are super fresh x.

    • DJ, you’re the most prolific, loyal and disciplined patient in the clinic. It is a pleasure to see your exceptionally good photos every day, and learn so much from you. I am sure that not only me, but all other participants are benefiting from your photography’s skills development.
      I’m grateful for the effort you have put to make the clinic a successful event. If we are now 41 and have over 500 posts linked to it, please be sure that the credit is also yours. Thanks! You’re fresh. Wicked! x

  3. Lucile, you just do not stop, do you? One thing, then another thing, then another. You just keep on keeping on. I love the layout of all the participants above, with photo. That must have taken some time? Will the list look like that all the time, or just this post? And I like the idea of a theme, but also like that you will leave the option open for no theme. It’s all good.

    • Hi Badfish, actually, this is means I will stop to join many challenges of other blogs and focus on dedicating more time to my ‘shop’ and to those who participate in the Photo Rehab. Every time I accept a new challenge, I have to neglect my own posts and ideas.
      The post took some time to be prepared because of the photos. I had to copy one by one but the links on the names was already on the standard post I use each time I post a photo. I had thought about either keeping the layout of the lists as before or like this one for future posts, but with the same photos, otherwise it takes to much time to make it. What do you think?
      I rather have no theme as I love to see the free creation process of the patients.But you know, people are different, and some prefer to get a theme. I am happy to offer that too now from now on.
      I thought about asking you to create a monthly feature on the Rehab but was wondering if that is going to force you to have a schedule, obligations, etc. What do you think?

      • Yeah, that makes sense, to spend more time with your own blog. As for the members of Rehab, I like the photos attached, if there’s a way to just keep them so you don’t have to redo them every time?
        Themes: I like the option. Sometimes if there’s nothing in my head, a theme helps focus my direction. On the other hand, I do not like being forced to do any one thing.
        A monthly feature?!! Well, I’m honored you would think of me. However, what would I write about–photography? Or procrastination? Ethics? Procrastination?

        • Yes, I can keep them. Maybe you already know how to do this, to copy a post, when you make a new one?
          That’s what I do when I have recurring posts. It avoids double work placing links, photos etc.
          I hate being forced to doing anything, hence my option for free theme. I’m surprised though on how many bloggers prefer to be told what to do. So the Rehab will have both to make all happy and at ease. It’s better that way.
          What would you write or photograph for a monthly feature? Whatever you want. The honor would be entirely mine.

          • No…I do not know how to copy a post! Good you do…for this.
            Agreed: being forced…no thanks. On the other hand, sometimes a theme helps. I’m onboard for both.
            Writing a feature: let me think about that. Are the Rehab folks new to photography? Don’t know if I have more to offer than they already know–light, depth of field, composition??

            • If you ever want to know how, just ask. Thanks much for thinking about joining the Rehab with a feature. The folks are new to photography. It is a mix bag. Some use smartphones and say to me that they don’t know the technique, and some others have pro cameras and know what they are doing. There are three ladies who bring monthly features to the Rehab. First week is Perelincolors experimenting with basic technique and sharing with us. Second week is Desley experimenting with LighRoom post processing. Forth week is Nalinki, who will kick of her monthly feature this Thursday, bringing Night Photography and her tips about use of light. You could have the third week of the month. Given that the ladies are covering the basics of technique, you could perhaps (if I may brainstorm) touch upon the composition. What people see (the image) and what they want to express (The emotions and thoughts) with their photos.You are brilliant making this connection in all your posts. What do they see and what story their photo say. Well, I am just rambling. Obviously you are free to create something totally different and novel.
              What are your thoughts? If you don’t want to have an obligation with a monthly feature, just say it.
              If you would like a feature about writing and not about photos, just say it.
              If you want to just do a guest post once, say it.
              So, all is allowed.
              Cheers!

  4. Such a talented group of addicts 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing (and participating as a patient) in your weekly wrap up.
    Very excited to hear about your new themed challenge. Yay
    Love hanging out with you here.

  5. […] Unfortunately, it was a cloudy, raining day and as I shot some photos with an Iphone6, it became clear that they were very dull. At home I thought that I could bring them to a post processing “plastic surgery operation”, inspired by the editing wizard photoblogger and scientist Desley, who features the Image Reboot at her blog Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist as well at this blog’s Photo Rehab.  […]

  6. Its Wonderful !
    I shall join as I shall have to still do some writing rather than photo clicking.
    Dear Lucile!
    I have dedicated my latest post in your name and in the name of your Blog , please do visit and go through and put your comment.
    Shiva

    • Thank you Shiva. It’s going to be a pleasure whenever you decide to join.
      Thanks for the shoutout on your post. I read it and had a huge smile on my face! Comment is there.
      Cheers!
      Lucile

    • I’m happy, honored and grateful to have you taking part of the group.
      You may think of a feature fur the rehab, if you like the idea, or simply doing it as Desley and Perelincolors, by linking one of your existing ones to the Rehab.
      It’s a pleasure to host the Rehab and interact with you all, while appreciating your photos.

  7. Lucile, según he ido leyendo los comentarios anteriores, he ido viendo que mis pensamientos se iban convirtiendo en palabras en boca de todos los amigos de la Clinic. Yo también creo, igual que Restlessjo, que quizás el reto se está especializando demasiado, y los que hacemos fotos normalitas y con cámaras normalitas no vamos a poder seguirlo por falta de conocimientos técnicos. De hecho entiendo bastante poco lo que Desleyjane cuenta del programa de edición del que habla.
    Me encanta el diseño de la entrada con todos los que participamos.
    Y me encantará intentar seguir con vosotros.
    Un abrazo.

  8. Lucile, you are amazing! I like that we can post random photos, but I will definitely look forward to seeing the challenge themes. It is interesting to see the different takes and techniques on the same theme! The features are cool too. Many thanks Lucile!

  9. Oh, this looks like fun, Lucile. I am so bad at directions…..I will figure out how to do this. No, I don’t like being told what to do, but a theme is merely a suggestion. And that is such a huge help. I love all the diversity with the WPC, so themes here should be absolutely wonderful with such a talented group of addicts!

    • It is fun, Lois. Come and join us!
      I finally understood that my aversion to orders should not be translated into giving a theme for the Rehab. Hence my decision to also offer themes. Everyone here should find diverse ‘treatments’ at the clinic!
      Feel welcome anytime!

  10. What a great idea Lucile! I love checking out everyone’s photos but it must be a lot of work for you. I’m happy to be involved as long as you keep opening your blog up to us. I’ve just popped in my latest photo as it happens! Thanks you so much and I look forward to seeing how things evolve. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for dropping by and commenting. And wow, thanks for the nomination as well. I am overwhelmed. I have been nominated for this award before though so I thank you very much for thinking of me.
      Congratulations on your award! Best wishes.
      Lucile

  11. Greetings Lucille! I think there will be a photo 101 class in my future, as I’ve just purchased a digital camera. So much to learn, and so many things I want to photo, and now can 🙂 I’ve often seen photobloggers I know mention Photo Rehab, and wondered what it is. Now I have an inkling. 🙂

    • Greetings Fimnora! Feel welcome to join the Photo Rehab tribe anytime! We’re not professionals and just learn form each other, so don’t feel intimidated and start your trials with us. There are talented people here sharing what they learn, like basic techniques and also the post processing of photos. Happy to have you joining!

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