MY ANSWERS:
(I decided to add a photo to each of them)

1) Why did you start your blog?
I started it because I really wanted to connect with other people who are passionate about photography all around the world – a blog seemed the perfect way to do so! This was the first photo I published:

2) How long have you been blogging?
For 4 years now! My first post was on September 12th 2011.
This was my first profile picture and I still keep it as my avatar:

3) How long have you been taking pictures?
If you start counting from the moment I got my first camera, then it has been for almost 20 years! But if you mean really being interested in photography itself and wanting to learn more about it, I would say the past 8 years. Here I am at age 14 camera in hand:

4) What is your favorite picture that you shot yourself?
It’s difficult to choose… but this one is part of my favorites for sure:

5) What is your favorite picture by somebody else?
Even harder to choose! I will go with this one by Miss Aniela. Back in 2009 this was the photo that made me realize photography could be much more than just documenting moments. That’s how I came across multiple exposures & creative self portraits.

6) Can you describe your photography style?
I would say it’s authentic, I like my photos to reflect what I’m seeing and how I’m feeling at the moment.

7) Do you have a favorite object that you like to shoot?
Right now I don’t have one particular object I prefer to shoot, however light is the element I always pay attention to the most every time I photograph.

8) Besides camera and lens, what accessory do you use most often?
That would be my camera strap! I have the BlackRapid Elle Strap :

9) Is there a photography skill that you wish you were better at?
Yes: flash! I have the tools to improve though:

10) How do you try to improve your skills?
I try to read & watch videos as much as possible and then it’s by trial and error, I just experiment a lot!

11) Do you prefer color or black and white photography?
Most of my photos are color, so I guess that shows some kind of preference…

However, I really love the results when I shoot in B&W!
