When and why did you start blogging?
Throwback to 2011 when I was looking for a space to share my photos and document those moments. Fast forward to the present, I started to create content more regularly. Prior to www.betweenthelenses.com, I was blogging at www.daisycoeur.com.

How can I take a photo without any shadows?
I think shadows in photos can create a very different vibe, so embrace the shadows in your pictures! Anyhow, I always recommend to shoot in natural lighting (if possible). Ensure that the source of light is in front of you and not behind you.

I record my stopmotion videos with iMotion HD, and Splice (to add on any background music or effects). Both apps are free on the AppStore.

Yes, of course! It warms my heart when someone tells me how much they enjoy watching it. However, it is very time consuming so I hardly do them these days.
