Q&A with Melinda

How would you describe your creative style?
I love styling props, and flatlays! I love colors on my photos! Although sometimes I'm in the mood for monochromes too. I'm not a fan of simple, minimal flatlays. I can tell that my style is 'messy but nice to look at' flatlays. My color palettes are white and pink.

What kind of equipment do you use?
I use Sony mirrorless A5000 camera. For editing the photos, I use apps like Snapseed and PS Express. If I want to use certain mood for my photos, I use VSCO.

As you are hosting this week's creative challenge, can you tell us why you love the theme 'emojis'?
Many of my viewers said that I created fun colorful flatlays. And I can associate the emojis theme this week with fun and a lot of fun of playing around with creative ideas.

Can you share a couple of your favourite images you have created and why you love them?

 I love how bright and colorful the image is. This is the kind of image that make me happy.

 I love playing around with stationery. I think it makes a great flatlay prop! And I love using pink backdrop (as you can see on my Instagram feeds). I love how lovely and pink the image is!

 I love the morning vibes of the image. The brightness of the natural light make it even better. As you know, I like using a cup of coffee/tea on my images
