Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Mei-Lin. I am a 23 year old who loves to make people laugh and feel good. Making people smile brings me joy. Another thing that brings me joy is photography. I absolutely love walking around Boston with my iPhone and photographing anything that catches my eye. My Instagram page is my own personal gallery where I get to present my photos in an aesthetic way.
When did you realize your passion for photography?
After studying abroad in Italy and traveling to many places, I realized the thing I loved most about traveling was photographing my everyday experiences. Photography makes me go outside and explore the world.
What is your advice to aspiring photographers on Instagram?
If I had to give aspiring photographers on Instagram advice I would say don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Don’t be afraid to take bad pictures. Keep photographing things that catch your eye. In fact, I’ve taken lots of bad pictures in order to get to that one picture that really catches my eye.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I would say don’t edit your photos too much. There is a balance.
Also when I post a picture I like for that photo to communicate with the other photos and to have some kind of relationship the others.
