The Photo Rehab is a great community to share photos, learn new techniques, discover new talents, and connect.
Firstly, a warm welcome to the new members of the Photo Rehab: Mitch Zeissler from Exploratorius, Sankara Jayant from the The Pixels of Soul, Susan Gutterman from Photoquest. We also extend our warm welcome to Jennifer Nichole Wells and Sabina Ayne from Library of Cats, who recently joined the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover Challenge. They are the new ‘patients’ of the Photo Rehab! So please check their blogs as well.
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.
I am inspired by the photos shared within our community of photobloggers, and here you can see their skills translated into stunning images.
Here are the photos of week 33. At the bottom you find instructions on how to take part!
Now it’s wrap up time! You will see this week’s latest pictures, but I encourage you to follow the links below to visit the blogs of all ‘patients’! You won’t regret. You will find a mix of beautifully crafted images and words.
The stage is theirs!
Mitch Zeissler from Exploratorius brings a superior line up of photos for our appreciation: Collaboration for graphics for premier CD Poor Blues. Raku-fired Ceramic. Into the Abyss. A Bit Tart Yet. Big Sky in the East. Autumn is Fast Upon Us. Water Spill at Colorado Mine. Implosion. Cheerful Hue of the Chicory Blue. I am very sorry for having missed his tag on the Reader, as you and I missed to see outstanding photography. Apologies. I am a confessed fan of Mitch, an accomplished photographer, who I had the privilege to come across on the blogosphere. I learn everyday from his photographic genius. The Photo Rehab feels honored to host his photos, and to deserve his consideration. We all will gain so much by learning from his sensitive and experienced eyes!
The Pixels of Soul shares a magic image from a long train journey in India and an amazing shot of a sparrow basking in the morning sun. I added photos from earlier weeks found only today on the reader, which didn’t have a link to this blog. Apologies.
Susan from Photoquest captured a delightful taste of summer: a kid eating nectarines at the farmers market.
Though she joined the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover Challenge only last week, Jennifer Nichole Wells didn’t waste time and submitted absolutely awe-inspiring entries for all earlier themes. You must check her blog. As her photos were not featured in the previous wrap ups of the challenge, I am bringing them here today. For those who don’t know, Jennifer hosts the One Word Photo Challenge, which is a great way to use your creative juices.
Sabina Ayne from Library of Cats has also just joined the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover Challenge. See the beautiful book covers that she created! So much creativity and skills!
Andy Townend response to Tech of the Month: Long Exposure is a work of art. Go there and learn what he did to get this exceptional result. He is a bit sad that he couldn’t do more and you need to read his post to know why. A lesson we all want to listen to. Andy shared some shots of his Project 365 Mobile too! Wow!
Books, Music, Photography and Movies submitted this entry weeks ago but the link never showed up in my blog. I found it only today on the Reader! Apologies.
Becky from Restart Urgently Needed spent hours watching shooting stars and making wishes. She has especially shared one of the shots and has given us a chance to make a wish too. I suggest to visit her blog as there you can see the photo better than here.
BadFish Out of Water decided to follow the opinion of his followers and is now wandering in Bali, and hopefully writing a new book: Eat, Pray and Chill! Before leaving his peaceful house in Ubud, and venturing into the unknown, he sent some stunning shots of paradise.
Debbie from Deb’s World adventures met an angry bull and did very well to find a creepy face for WP Photo Challenge.
Desley from Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist zooms in light effects, makes skilled macros and shares stunning results with us. And how about a ride with her at the Brisbane wheel shot with long exposure? Her latest experiments with light are a must-see.
Julia from My Red Page shares her beautiful interpretation of Foggy and Snow.
Perelincolors gives us the pleasure to enjoy her fabulous entries for Beneath the Feet WP Photo Challenge.
Janet from This, That and The Other Thing shares the meadows of her park walk which is now home to goldfinches, beautiful birds characterized by their mini-roller coaster flight patterns. She shows mastery to shoot them.
Just for a change, today I’m sharing some photos submitted to the Photo Rehab new features. Check the amazing tips and shots made by Perelincolors, who hosts Tech of the Month; Desley who hosts the Image Reboot; and Nalinki who hosts Available Light.
Perelincolors careful explanations on her Tech of the Month challenge, on how to make long exposure photos, gives us so much encouragement. Seeing her photos leads us to go out and start experimenting. If you want to learn how to make night photography with a compact camera or a pro camera, she will let you know how simple it can be.
And when you feel more comfortable with night photography, you know that what Nalinki Available Light Challenge can do with zoom effects and light, is something you can dare to try too! She let’s you know how you can do it and shares stunning photos.
Desley’s step by step post processing of photos is something you don’t want to miss out. Go and check her Image Reboot Challenge to learn how she made this sublime photo transformation!
Thank you everyone for these fabulous entries this week!

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:
- Shoot a photo.
- Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to add a link/Pingback to or any of my posts and to use the tag #PhotoRehab or #Photo101Rehab, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
- Alternatively you can also add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and to the overall audience of the Photo Rehab. This is the best way for your photos to be seen.
- Here is the link to add your photos. Knock the wall of the Clinic… and click on the image below:
