We turn to Instagram when we need a little dose of happiness. You can always find it there and Julia Kislev is one of those photographers that makes Instagram a happier place. She makes beautiful and mesmerizing photos of colorful flowers and since we want you to be happy, we took a chance and asked her some questions. 

Julia says flowers are her #1 inspiration.

I capture flowers and nature. Flowers are my #1 inspiration. Whether capturing flowers in nature or creating still life, I like my pictures to be light, soft and happy.

You don't need to be a professional photographer to start. But you must be willing to learn.

I’m not a professional photographer and did not know anything about taking beautiful pictures before I started Instagram account. I’ve learned a lot from the extremely talented people there and I get a lot of inspiration from them every day. It’s a wonderful community.

And great photography doesn't happen by itself. You must try different things to get better.

Good lighting and the right background are a must. Always try different angles and take multiple shots so you can choose the best one later.
