Flat lay pictures are really trendy these days. You see them on almost every Instagram page. I enjoy making these kind of pictures and it makes your feed look super creative. But how do you make those flat lay pictures on your own? I have some great tips for you to help you out with this!
Tip 1: Get inspired by other flat lay Instagrammers or search on Pinterest. Look at the layout and how they placed the products. Try to do the same but in your own way!
Tip 2: Use different backdrops. I love to use a white backdrop for my flat lays but you can try marble, wooden or metal backdrops as well. Just look at the products you are showing and choose a backdrop that suits your products.
Tip 3: Create a theme, it's important to stick with a certain theme. I love to keep it simple and clean (minimalistic). Sometimes it's a good idea to give your flat lay some room to breath.
Tip 4: Think about the lighting in the photo. I think daylight is your best friend with pictures like this! You can still edit your pictures on Photoshop or certain apps.
Tip 5: Make a lot of pictures of the same flay lay! If you shoot multiple pictures you can choose the best one. Some of them are maybe shaky or not fully focused. It's also good to shoot from different angles!
Enjoy making the perfect flat lay! Let me know if these tips helped you out.
