I never really know how to start these things… If you didn’t already know, which you should by now, I’m Joanna and welcome to my blog and little corner of the internet. I started this blog as an outlet for my passion for photography and the use of the written word. Too often things are now said through other means but I am a true believer in sometimes only needing a few words to say a lot. I love having a personal space which I can shape in every way and make truly my own and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
A little more about me? I’m 20 and although I was born and grew up in London (which will always be my true home), I now live in Brighton which is a the most perfect little seaside city in the South of England. I love having two places which I can alternate between and being in one always makes me miss the delights about the other. I am currently in my third (and final ahh) year of studying History at Sussex University.
My route to where I am now started back over on YouTube about 4 years ago where I began to upload moments I had captured on camera to save as memories and it soon became not only my favourite hobby, but a gateway to so many people and experiences. I owe many aspects of my life today to the hobby that I so avidly wanted to keep a secret at the time and it is safe to say that if I could thank my past self for anything, it would be for stumbling on creative opportunities and doing what I wanted, regardless of what everyone else seemed to be doing. Creativity never has a solid line of progression and that is what inspires me every day. I am excited to see what this will develop into and I hope to see you around on here a lot!
What camera do you use?
Most of my content is shot on a Canon 600D with either the 18-55mm f3.4 or my Canon 50mm f1.8. I definitely believe that whilst equipment is important to have, it should never be the main thing and you can create whatever when you know how to work around what you have
Occasionally Instagrams will be taken on my iPhone SE, but I try to keep them mostly from my 600D.
How long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging in August 2015 and never really looked back. I have always loved sharing content in the written form and this blog has really evolved since I first started and I can’t wait to see where it will be in the future…
What is your Twitter/Instagram?
All my social media links are in the top bar of the site (: Feel free to say hi, I am always floating about on twitter and I have recently gotten suuuuper into posting on Instagram and often take my stories a little too seriously!!
How do you edit your photos?
I don’t really know where I would be without Adobe Lightroom… It is simple to use and can really do pretty much everything I need. If I am just on my phone, VSCO is always handy but you are definitely restricted with what you can achieve on there. I will be doing posts on photo editing soon…
Who built your blog?
The wonderful and talented @bromeosin – he’s alright… no but seriously, he has developed this whole site from scratch and has had to put up with me wanting to change every little detail 10 times. So big thanks to him for everything!!
