Let’s Talk About Flatlays

Flatlays are photography styling of a few items in a picture.  If you are on Instagram, most likely you have seen such images on fashion, food, beauty products or just about anything one can think of.  Flatlays are usually taken using a smartphone from top down angle after you have arranged everything lying down.  The flat lay photos are a chic and creative way to display pretty items, food or drinks.  How the photo is taken, the lighting and the styling are important in capturing the perfect photo.

I like taking flatlays of coffee since I love coffee.

I am a lover of flatlays. Correction.  I am obsessed with flatlays.  I follow Flatlay Instagrammers and also go to Pinterest for inspiration.    Currently, I am handling the social media side of a few companies. I use flatlays to promote their business on Facebook and Instagram.   I am not an expert in photography but I am learning the ropes on how to take a good flatlay.  It looks simple but a lot of work goes into making a flatlay.  I am grateful that I have been given a chance to do this by these companies.
