paperfury

Welcome to our monthly special feature post, Bookstagrammer Of The Month!

Each month we will be interviewing a different Bookstagrammer  (Book lover/photographer on Instagram) who will share with us a bit of their experience with the #Bookstagram community!

Introducing Caitof @paperfury, YABC's Bookstagrammer of the Month!! 

      

Cait lives in Australia with her dog and a colour-coded bookshelf that she's half in love with. When not reading or taking photos, she writes YA novels to make you laugh or cry or both. She believes in cake for breakfast.

1. How long have you been part of the Bookstagram community?

I started bookstagramming in 2015!

 

2. Can you tell us a bit about your feed/style and how has it changed
over time?

I started off with zero props and not a lot of books on my shelf, so my go-to for shots was either a minimalistic approach on the floorboards or going outside. I had a really nice backyard at the time, so that definitely helped! But eventually I realised I wanted a consistent theme and that I was hopelessly in love with flowers and bright colours. So enter my rainbow catastrophes! I'm definitely the kind of bookstagrammer who'll cram as many things into the frame as possibles. Rainbows galore! I'm so pleased with how my style has grown.

 

3. What is the silliest thing you've ever done for the sake of a photo?

I have climbed my bookshelf! And doing this on a self-timer means I have 10 seconds to climb, get settled, and not fall off, so that's quite the gymnastic effort.

 

4. When do you make time for taking photos? Do you usually plan ahead or take photos as you go (daily)?

I like to take a week's worth of photos on Sundays. The entire morning is my "photography day" and it's so much fun! My room also looks like a rainbow threw up in in afterwards...

 

 

5. What type of camera do you use?

I use a Nikon D3200.

 

6. What are some of your favorite props (besides books, of course ;))?

I absolutely _love_ props, but I don't have much money to spend, so I love to make them (like origami stars and paper cranes) or get super cheap flowers at 2nd hand stores. I also draw all my own backgrounds, so the rainbow zentangles you see behind the books are handmade. I also am totally down to bother my family into making pretty desserts so I can take photos of them. (And maybe snack on the way...shh.)


 

7. What book/series do you tend to photograph the most?

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater! I adore Stiefvater's books and it's become a running thing now to find one of her books in all my photos. So there's a 90% chance there's a Stiefvater book lurking in every photo on my feed!

 

8. Which of your photos is your absolute favourite and why?

Ah! I can't pick favourites! Although I'm always in love with how my #shelfies turn out...my shelf is colour-coded and I'm pretty proud of it.

 

9. What is the thing you love most about Bookstagramming?

It's an amazing place to be (a) creative, (b) feast your eyes on incredible book cover art that makes your heart beat faster, and (c) meet a ton of really cool and supportive bookworms. I might be biased but I do think bookstagrammers can be the kindest people on the internet. ;)

 

10. What are a few of your favorite Bookstagram accounts?

I'm obsessed with so many accounts, but a few of my favourites are: @darkfaeriestales_, @eden.hammond, @thereaderandthechef, @lulumoonowlbooks, @emilyjmead and @lettuce_read!

 

Thank you again for stopping by YABC, Cait! We absolutely love your colorful account and we cannot wait to see more of your beautiful bookish photos, including your upcoming book: A Thousand Perfect Notes, on #bookstagram!
