**Don't forget to enter my photography contest!**

Hey guys! For our 4th interview we'll be interviewing the wonderfully wonderful Mary Catherine (otherwise known as MCat) from Glittering Compositions!

tell us a little bit about yourself:


Photobucket
I am fourteen years old, and I am the oldest of six children. I have brown hair and brown eyes, and I'm taller than just about everyone I know. When I'm not behind the camera, I love reading, writing, and singing. 












1) when did you first become interested in photography?
I got my first point-and-shoot back in 2007 for my birthday, but I didn't get extremely serious about taking good photos until I entered an American girl photography contest last year. I didn't win, but I was hooked.

2) what camera(s) do you use?
Just this past month I finally got a Nikon D7000, which I adore.

3) does your camera have a name?
Yes - her name is Ebony. :)

4) any lenses? flashes? other equipment?
Not currently, but as I said I really want to get a macro lens soon.

5) what's on your equipment wish-list?
I would like to get a few more lenses, including a macro lens. I also want to get one of those adorable camera strap covers.

6) what's your absolute favourite thing about photography?
I love that I can capture moments that would otherwise be gone. I feel that I can show God's creation in such a way that makes other people see how marvelous He is.

7) what's your favourite thing to photograph? people? nature? other?
Although I love photographing my siblings and people in general, I love nature photography the most because you don't have to make it pose.

8) do you ever get referred to as "the girl who's always taking pictures (I know I do). If yes, do you mind?
I get called that a lot - but I don't mind. In fact, I was talking to a little girl last week that took ballet with my teacher last year, and I was telling her she should have known me before because I took a ton of photos at our recital this year. Her eyes kind of got a little realization in them and she said, "Oh - you were the girl with the camera! I might have been avoiding you..." 
Sometimes I get funny looks, but that's okay - the pictures are always worth it in the end.

9) what do you do to find inspiration?
I look at my favorite blogs. 

Photobucket10) any tips you'd like to give fellow photographers/bloggers?
Don't ever be afraid to be the one with the camera. When you're writing a blog post, make sure that you're being YOU, and not trying to be perfect. People enjoy reading blogs that are written by REAL people, mistakes and all.
