What made you start a blog?
I first started out on Tumblr (sarahhmckinley) and posted original photos of mine and reblogged other photos as well. I got a lot of questions on what makeup I used, where I got a certain outfit, what to wear to certain events, etc. and I really enjoyed answering those questions! So, after a few years I decided to expand into a blog. I love photography and writing about personal experiences so I thought it would be a great fit!
Are you in school?
Yes, I am a Junior at the University of South Carolina. I’m double majoring in Business Management and Marketing and I have a minor in Hospitality and Tourism. I hope to one day go to graduate school and work in some sort of management or marketing position as well as keep up with my blog 🙂
What do you use to take your photos?
I use this camera and I normally use this lens. I always use my camera for my blog posts but will sometimes use my phone for Instagram/Tumblr. I would say that any canon camera is my favorite – As long as you have a good lens, the body of the camera doesn’t matter as much!
Where are you from?
I am from Charlotte, North Carolina! I have actually lived in the same house since I was a few months old. Charlotte has my heart and I would be so blessed to end up there after college for my career!
How do you edit your photos?
I use Lightroom to edit my photos. Once you get the hang of it, Lightroom is so easy to use and definitely worth the price. If you are a college student, you can actually get it in a package at a discounted price that I believe is around $7.99 a month! With Lightroom you can create your own presets and do just about anything you want with your photos. It is a great for both beginner photographers and experts!
