Photo 101 ~ My 10 Favourites from the Course

I had finished the Photo 101 Course with a daily post for more than 20 continuous days. In face of some obstacles like having no internet for nearly 16 hours, unstable internet in my area, the unfortunate incident of my dogs “biting incident” resulting with my two bitten fingers on my left hand and the heat wave in the country with temperatures soaring above 40 degrees Celsius, everything ended favourably. If there is a will, there is a way unless one kick the bucket.

Some facts I discovered and learned from the bloggers/photographers are :-

1. The thinking and subsequent action on the given theme is not always the same with the participating bloggers. True, as every human being is different from each other, thus we are see an array of different photographs uploaded on their individual blog. Different thinking on the theme so we have different photographs.

2. Every blogger is usually a loving, caring, kind, compassionate person with the place of residence that is generally peaceful and beautiful in nature. I had seen so many beautiful places, buildings, landscapes, animals, birds, sea creatures, flowers and other interesting things which in my life-time I shall have no time or opportunity to travel and see due to my matured age. Thank you for all these lovely and informative photographs that are shared on these blogs.

3. I was just wondering why the current troubled world cannot emulate the blogosphere we have here – peaceful, loving, friendly, diverse, harmonious and caring community of people from different countries, ideology, religions and culture. War, human conflicts, terror, global warming and climate threats shall result in more problems and troubles for us on this only home we have – Earth.

I end here and crawl back into my tiny space of peace and harmony with my pets. Bye, my fellow bloggers, photographers, viewers, friends, and the people of this planet.

Hooray! You made it.
(Virtual) high-fives all around! Congratulations on finishing Photography 101 — we’re so happy you joined us for this photo-a-day journey this month, and hope that the daily themes and tips inspired you.

End of Photo 101

A quiet moment among feluccas on the Nile River in Cairo, Egypt.

Feel free to sit back and take it easy this weekend. But if you’re itching for a bit more, consider these projects as we wrap up the course:

Browse your collection of shots from the course, select up to ten favorites, and publish a wrap-up post with a gallery.
Look through your shots to see which themes and tips you enjoyed the most. Did you take a lot of establishing shots? Close ups? Abstract images? Great color shots? Compile your favorites in a post.
Pick one element we covered during the course, then head out with your camera to practice: composition, light, movement, color, or something else of your choosing.
Revisit the themes. Are there any themes you’d like to try again? What would you do differently? What have you learned?
Want to explore photography topics in more depth? Browse the “Craft of Photography” topic on The Daily Post. You can also download our Photography 101 e-book, which compiles resources and tutorials from various photographers on WordPress.com.

The Commons will remain open for posting and commenting for one more week, so you can catch up on anything you’ve missed.

Thank you for joining us this month!

Cheers,
Josh and the WordPress.com Team

  5. Thank you Lim Soo Peng, for this reflection from your heart…. profound, hopeful, witty and wise, with al large dose of humility…. such a dream for the earth and you you ask “why not could this come to be?”. As for the added bonus of your photographs, thank you. Malaysia looks so beautiful and I especially appreciated the large photo view of Kek Lok Si Temple which is stunning. I was also moved by the photo of the net and fisher…

    • I have not seen any blogs from the hot and troubled spots of the world. Hopefully, there are some bloggers who can narrate what is actually happening in their areas so we can understand. Thank you, Livonne.

  7. I, too, love the kind, respectful community this blogosphere has to offer. It is such a nice escape from the constant political battles I see and hear so close to election time in the USA. Your photos are brilliant and stunning. Thank you for sharing!
