2. Questions about Booksandteacups

2.1 When did you start with you blog and Bookstagram?
I started my Bookstagram in May 2016, but I’ve been an active Instagrammer since way before then (I believe that I made my account somewhere in 2018 – I don’t know the exact date). I only started a blog in October 2017, because I really wanted to start my own bookish blog but never really had the time to do so. I finally had the time to do some research about blogging at the end of 2017 and have had an active blog since then!

2.2 What is the explanation behind your username ‘booksandteacups’?
I originally started photographing on Instagram back in 2013, and back then a lot of names where still available. I was just brainstorming about what I liked to do in my free time – which, of course, is reading – and what I loved to eat or drink (and my favourite drink at that moment was tea). Thus the name ‘booksandteacups’ was born, and I’ve used it ever since.

2.3 What camera do you use to take your photos and how do you edit them?
It really depends on the kind of picture I want to take. For pictures taken from above, I normally use my iPhone 7, and for other kinds of pictures I use my DSLR camera, which is a Canon EOS 600D with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I only edit my photos with the Instagram app itself, so I don’t really use any specific filter or something like that. The only thing I do is increase the brightness of my photos with the Instagram app.

2.4 Can I use your pictures on my website/social media?
No, you can’t use my pictures without my permission on your website and/or social media. You can only use them if you have my permission and if you credit me for the pictures, so send me a message via the contact form or info@booksandteacups.com to discuss it further.
