When a magazine approaches me for an interview I am always very honored and grateful. It is nice to know they value my opinion and want to share my work and ideas with their readers. The FLOW vacationbook is a seperate issue from FLOW magazine that is eagerly awaited by many readers during the summer.
This year the magazine book focussed on all things 'photography' ... inspired by everything you see online. They asked me what kind of images I like to share on Bloesem blogs, what to look for in an image and what I keep in mind when making my own pictures. Like the image above when I photograhped a kitchen shelf in our Amsterdam apartment with ceramics found in thrift-shops.
I'm not a professional photographer but I do believe with current digital camera's, a good eye for composition, color and keeping things simple we can all make nice pictures.
I also said during the interview that true inspiration for me comes from within myself and not so much from pinterest or instagram. I do love browsing through them and of course they give me good ideas but sometimes there is just too much and I need to go back to my inner voice and think about what I feel is beautitful!
Thank you F for inviting me and being part of this summer book. Great reading the interview with Ing-Things too.
ps. many free downloads from FLOW, best to use Translate not sure if you know how to read Dutch :)
