I have developed a sudden interest in flatlays lately. I am an Instagram addict so I want my photos to look nice and pretty. I love how the people I follow in Instagram post photos of their food, clothes and etc. They are really inspiring. I have been watching Youtube videos on how to get a good flatlay. I got myself a white board, wooden desk and pallet to be used as background for my theme. Some of the tips that I have learnt are :-
1) Always take photos in natural light i.e. in the morning or afternoon.
2) Leave enough space between objects to balance out the image.
3) Pick a theme
4) Get as high up as possible to shoot the flatlay. Climb on a chair if you must.
5) Try different layout
6) Use props that are related or add colours to the flatlay.
