november blogger: catching up with rose

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Hello everyone! I would like you all to meet the November Blogger of the Month. Her name is Rose and she is from the blog, Rose Petals in the Rain. Not only are her photos effortlessly beautiful, but her style is like a dream. Ruffles, pleats, chiffon (and even a Mulberry bag!). I was so happy to have been able to do a little interview with her about style, hobbies, and why she started her wonderful blog. 

What’s the story behind ‘Rose Petals in the Rain’?
I thought about starting a blog a few years ago when I first discovered ‘blogs’. I then dismissed the idea and thought it would be a silly thing to do. I resigned from a job and purchased a digital SLR on a whim after wanting one for a few years. I decided to take a chance and make a blog despite being a bit worried I would make a fool of myself.

How would you describe your style?
I would say simple and feminine. I’m not a ‘creatively complex’ dresser. I love soft fabrics, ruffles and neutral tones.

On weekends or in your spare time, you would most likely be found...
Hanging out with my kitty Chilli, going for a walk, catching up with friends and enjoying doing nothing at all.

What type of camera do you use?
The camera I use for my blog is a Nikon D5000.

Your photos are always so beautiful, any tips on photography etc?
Oh thank-you! I don’t claim to be any kind of expert on photography but here are a few of my tips.
Try to be mindful of the lighting. I prefer to take photos in natural light and I avoid using flash. If you own an SLR and like to take outfit photos purchase a remote. Using a remote is so much easier than running back and forth using self-timer.

If you could have any 3 wishes in the world, they would be...
I wish I had more free time to spend on my hobbies.
I wish I could stay the age I am now.
I wish I could be happy without risking other people’s happiness. I’ve found that difficult lately.
