Kym chats to us about her style, inspirations and what she’d do with an extra hour in the day.
Describe your style in 5 words
Eclectic, moody, tonal, documentary, warm. And I was trying to find a word that best sums up ‘will make you hungry’, as there’s usually plenty food to be found in my shots!
What are the tools you use to create your feed?
My feed is a real mix between iPhone and my Canon 6D. If I’m out and about, it tends to just be on my phone but the more styled, food stuff is always on the Canon. I’m a huge lover of Snapseed for editing phone photos and a little tweaking in Instagram itself never goes a miss. Lightroom is my go to for professional stuff.
Who or what inspires you?
The Instagram community forever inspires me, I am constantly in awe at the level of creativity that I stumble across on a day to day basis. Sometimes I need a refresh though and staring at a screen just won’t do it! I find travel and just generally wandering around getting lost is what gets me all energised and creative again.
If you had an extra hour in the day what would you do?
I’d probably spend another hour on Instagram! Is that sad? Okay, I might use it to revisit old cookbooks that are getting a bit dusty on my bookshelf.
What is your personal motto?
Eat well, travel often. I stole that from somewhere but it’s something I like to live by.
How did you get into the wonderful world of Instagram?
Before the iPhone 6 came out I had this old Nokia and I didn’t even know Instagram was a thing! I started taking photos again, just with my new fancy phone and I wanted somewhere to put them. After a couple of months of using it I started to notice the lovely community side of the app as I chatted with people in comments – it seemed okay to do that! I’ve been chatting in the comments and making friends ever since, I really do love it.
Who else should we follow on instagram? Who’s your top three?
@indiahobson, her take on colour and light and the way she curates it is pure magic. I love the work of @catherine_frawley, I can usually be found gasping at the beauty in everything she posts! And finally @marrbell, for the perfect tones.
Thank you Kym! Now head over to @kymgrimshaw to see her latest photos!
