1. What photography gear do you use?  I used a Sony Cyber shot since I started blogging, so all the photos taken between the period of Dec 2011 to Dec 2013 are taken with that camera unless stated otherwise. Nikon d3100 is my new camera since I got it in October 2013 and which lens are 18-55mm, aka the ones that came with the camera so nothing too fancy plus all the photos posted in this blog since Dec 31/2013 to this day are actually taken with it.
  2. Who takes your photos? All photos are taken by me including the ones I "make an appearance" that happen to be self-portraits.
  3. What program do you use to edit your photos and make your graphics//collages etc? I don’t do too much retouching to my photos but mostly I use PhotoScape to edit them a bit and as for graphics either the same program and/or Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator sometimes. 
  4. What app and filters do you use to edit your instagram photos? I don't use filters, I just mess and play around with natural lighting, and also play with vsco cam's tools contrast, saturation, exposure and sharpen. 
  5. Shoot in RAW or JPEG? Been shooting in JPEG all these years, but will definitely try to shoot more in RAW.


  1. Where are you from? I'm from Barranquilla, Colombia.
  2. What do you do? I'm a fashion designer.
