What camera and lenses do you have?
Canon Eos 500D :camera:

What program do you use to edit your pictures?

Lightroom 4.3 since 04/2013


Who created your da icon?
angelishi


Can I use your photos?
No, you're not allowed to use any of my work without my permission.


How do you create the light rounds(bokeh) in your photos like in 'Starry night' and 'Falling stars'?
I used christmas lights for this effect. I've made a tutorial about that and you can find the tutorial here: lieveheersbeestje.deviantart.c…

More tutorials here: lieveheersbeestje.deviantart.c…


I see you made a lot of photoshops actions, but what are photoshop actions?
Photoshop Actions are the recordings of commands that can be applied to one or multiple images in Photoshop. When you press play, it applies these recorded commands. Using an action can actually help you save a lot of time.

All my photoshop actions: lieveheersbeestje.deviantart.c…


How do I download and use your photoshop actions?
I made a tutorial about it here: How do I install and use a photoshop action


Where do you find al those ladybugs?
I live in the Netherlands and you have many ladybugs here in my garden, neigbourhood, especially in spring. I think I'm just lucky! (because I love ladybugs)


Where did you bought those little bottles you used in your photographs?
1. Craft shops
2. Second-hand shops
3. Etsy.com etsy.com
4. Claires claires.com


What's the liquid made of inside the bottles?
Most of the time it is food dye mixed with water, this makes the mixture clear. I also use paint mixed with water, this makes it turbid.


What about the ceramic mugs with the smiley faces and rosy cheeks? Where do you get those?
I bought the cups without faces at a Dutch shop. Drew the faces on it myself with a black erasable pencil. (brand: stabilo) I added the cheeks with a red erasable pencil (stabilo) and blurred it a bit with my finger.


How do you get your guinea pigs to sit still?
My guinea pigs are very calm animals, especially Booboo. They just don't move a lot in front of the camera, I guess I am lucky with that!
Professor Booboo by lieveheersbeestje

Hi, im just starting photography and im very interested in bokeh. I have a few questions to ask you.
1. when you shoot, do u get very very close to the objects?
2. how do u make the blackground so beautifully blurry? what setting did u use?
3. i have a canon t3i, what kind of lenses do u recommend for bokeh ?
4. do i need an external light source to make the picture look softer or is that done in photoshop?
thank you

If I use your action, have it as a print (hypothetically due to I don't think my stuff is print worthy yet), with the credits to your action, is that ok?

Basically, if I credit and use your actions in the photos I take, and they become prints to purchase, is that ok?
I know and can see (playing around with them) you put a ton of work. And I always always always credit the people I use stocks and whatever I use from other people.

I have a question:
You say: "Do not copy, edit, publish, transmit or reproduce in any way."
It's about the edit. If I use your actions, would it count to edit when I use only a part of one action? e.g. I use the action "old grain effect" and erase everything from "group2". Would this be an edit?

:iconlieveheersbeestje:
lieveheersbeestje Featured By Owner May 25, 2013
I changed it now to "do not copy! as far as I know" :D that means do not copy the action and post it as your own action. To adjust the actions to your picture you may delete some layers of course, no problem ^^

Thanks for the all the facts. This is really helpful. It is amazing that your guinea pigs pose for you (in a sense)... my dog shifts her head every time the camera is pointed her way. Or she stops doing something right when I get my video camera pointed at her. She can sense the lens! Xb

Thanks again for sharing.
