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
4. Claires

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!

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
