- Have the right equipment to stage your shots
Whether you’re using your smartphone or a camera, make sure you’re comfortable using it. Also, make sure you’ve chosen your preferred flatlay styling board to help communicate your narrative, and one that matches your brand.
- Have a clear idea of what you want to focus on
Choose one item or product or product range to focus on, and build your image’s narrative around that.
Browse our IG feed, or follow #flatlaygoals for daily inspo and for interesting ideas to keep your flatlays fresh and relevant.
- Time & Patience!
- Lighting & Editing
Choose a well-lit environment or use a white board to block out any unwanted shadows. Make sure to edit your photos, to lighten and crop your image or to resize it for social media posts.
