I was born and am living in Melbourne, Australia
I really want to get my blog up! I have been putting it off for a while as writing is not one of my strengths but I need to really put my mind to it and get it done.
I think with photography for sure! I thought the minute I brought my camera I would be an instant photographer but the more I learn the more I realise there is so much I don’t know! It has been a good challenge though but at the start was also frustrating as I didn’t know why my photos weren’t turning out like I imagined!
Yes for sure! When I started out I didn’t understand how to frame a photo as well as how to best capture lighting and the best times of the day to shoot. I have also learned about how important it is to follow some rules such as the “rule of thirds” which helps you to work out where to put your subject in a photo. I have been getting better as shooting in manual mode and adjusting settings including shutter speed and ISO. The next step for me will be videos as I am not so great as taking great videos and have no idea how to edit them!
I get most my inspiration from nature and the light. Nothing inspires me more than sunise and sunset and the pink glow that covers the scene in front of me. I always try to look at the beauty of the place I am in and the best photos come from me naturally enjoying the place I am in! I am also inspired by the instagram community as I follow so many talented photographers and travel bloggers. Also I can’t forget to mention by boyfriend Victor is one of my biggest inspirations and also helps create a lot of the photos.
To have some time off sometimes. We all have a break from our 9-5 jobs but we then forget that having an travel account can also be work and we also need to take a break. I will do this when I am too busy at work or when I notice myself feeling not good enough with my photos. I feel a break away resets things and gives me motivation to continue. Also find a support network and make friends who are also blogging. So you can share the ups and downs of the journey and learn lots of tips from!
Which account/s would you love to collaborate with?
I actually am happy to collaborate with anyone! I feel so lucky when people approach me and want to meet up or collaborate. I have a group of friends that I chat with on Instagram and we are hoping to one day go on a holiday together for a collaboration – would love to do this!
I love to do my own thing. However I have had lots of travel experience and have also worked in the industry so I love to book and plan holidays. But if you are not confident to travel alone or don’t have time to book your own travel for sure group tours are great. When I first traveled I did a few group tours in Europe with my friends and it was so easy to not have to plan.
