Arrange. This is perhaps the trickiest and most frustrating part of taking a good flat lay – learning how to style the items. It’s hard to give a specific formula for this, but a good starting point compositionally, is to obey the rule of thirds. One thing I’ve found to always be the case as well, is to know that things need to be a lot closer together than you think. Flat lays are on sale. Get them from our store. Link in our bio.
Choose your items. Unless you’re going for a minimalist shot with only one item, choose three things to focus on and make the shot about them. You could pick your items based around a theme – like travel, for example – or build around a specific color palate. My favorite flat lays are always the ones that have colors that are complementary.
Does your flat lay layout actually make sense? Nothing distracts from a flat lay design quite like a weird combination of items. If it doesn’t look natural, then it’ll just be a distraction. Plan your flat lay layout and props well to make them logical and pleasing.
It’s All About The Light Photographers have a saying: It’s all about the light. It means that the most important element in any photograph is always the lighting. Always. So when you plan your next photo shoot, devote more time to improving that skill. It’s your skill and talent with lighting that will truly raise you up as a pro. Flat lays are on sale.

Achieve Balance This tip is essential to pleasing your Instagram followers, but it takes a bit of practice to figure out. Balance is a somewhat subjective measure of a photograph, so here are some basic rules of thumb. Try not to load lots of big items on only one side of the photo. Create balance by keeping the mass fairly equal throughout a page. Picbackers are on sale. Get them now. Link in bio.
Pick A Color Palette or Theme. What’s the theme of your flat lay photo? If you’re a food blogger, it could be ingredients and products/tools used in the kitchen. If you’re a beauty expert, it can be beauty products and cosmetics. Maybe you’re in love with the color blush (because it really is having a moment) and you want to show off some of the lovely items you’ve recently purchased—there’s your color palette right there. Always bring more props than you need because you’ll likely play around with different items and swap them in and out before you get the perfect placement. Picbackers are on sale.

Before you can start anything, gather all the items you think you might need for your image. Get the props, your backdrops, your camera, everything, and lay it out somewhere easy for you to grab. Picbackers are on sale. Get them on our website. Link in bio.
Straight Lines vs Curves You can lay objects out in two ways; very straight lines, or in a more curves composition. Both work, but will give off completely different vibes. Straight lines feel more masculine and harsh, whilst curves are more feminine and fluid. One tip is to think in “S” curves. Imagine an “S” on the floor below you, and place your items along it. If you need a hand, why not actually draw the “S” on a piece of paper and lay your items out on that, before removing it when you come to take your image. Picbackers are on sale.

Think About Your Angles. Generally speaking, there are three angles to stick to when it comes to product images. Obviously today I’ve focused on the flat lay, so for that you’d want to be directly above your objects. However if you wanted to take it a step up, you could get directly in front of your objects (at 90°), or also at a 45° angle. When shooting directly above your images (i.e., birds eye angle for a flat lay) be careful not to be slightly at an angle. Images can very quickly look wonky when they’re at a slight angle! Try to get as directly above the objects as you can. Picbackers are on sale.

Try to fill your frame I see a lot of beautiful flat lay and product images which could be even better if they were cropped just slightly, or if the frame had been filled just a bit more. Letting parts of your objects be cropped out makes the viewer feel like they’re able to get a bit more intimate with the scene, like they’ve been invited into a special moment.

Different colors will draw your eye to different parts of an image. It can also help to shape the mood of the image. For example, if you use one single color palette, i.e. blue tones, the image will feel calm. However go for reds and you’ll get a totally different emotion. Think about color theory where you can.

Capture the Season The best seasonal photos can convey a unique mixture of photographer’s feelings. Winter can be a cozy season of hot cocoa, silly sweaters, and marshmallows. Or it can be a cold and simple time of minimalist Nordic interiors, pale colors and snow-white decorations. Flat lays and selfie gadgets are on sale. Get them on 15% discount now.

Once you’ve got everything together, start with the object which is the focus of the image. I like to take the main item of the photo first, lay it on the floor/cardboard/whatever I’m shooting on, and then built around it from there. -- #magipea #selfie #portrait #photograhy #selfiemagic #selfiegenic #selfieprincess #tech #magipeatripod #magipeatriselfieplus #magipeaselfiestick #magipeamirror #magipealens #hasslefreetravel #magipeaus #magipeajellypea #easytravel #bestofthedayphoto #bestqualityproducts #bestqualityshots #handytravel #photoselfie #selfieexpert
Create a Metaphor Use a coffee cup like a flat circle. That will help you come up with metaphors for creative still life photos. What can be represented by a circle? A balloon? Ok, then shoot a set of coffee cups as a bunch of party balloons. A planet? Create your own Solar system with coffee cup planets, cookie asteroids and a cake Sun. Brainstorm for at least 15 minutes and you’ll be surprised how easy it is to come up with stories for your next shooting. -- #magipea #selfie #portrait #photograhy #selfiemagic #selfiegenic #selfieprincess #tech #magipeatripod #magipeatriselfieplus #magipeaselfiestick #magipeamirror #magipealens #hasslefreetravel #magipeaus #magipeajellypea #easytravel #bestofthedayphoto #bestqualityproducts #bestqualityshots #handytravel #photoselfie #selfieexpert
Tidy vs (curated) Chaos Another important aspect of flatlays and one that is entirely up to your own style, is whether your photos will have products featured in an almost OCD-tidy way or whether you will let chaos run the show. I do believe that everyone's different in their style and maybe this is one that you will master over time. In the meantime let's have a feel of both styles. Whatever you choose to do long term, remember to keep your style consistent. Flat lays and selfie gadgets are on sale. Get them with a 15% discount from us.

Use Decorative Ornaments Made From Food We already talked about food typography, which generally counts as flat lay photography too.

Use Color Blocking Cut some triangles, circles, and squares out of colorful sheets of paper or vinyl. Focus on basic geometric forms and limit your range of colors. Make sure the colors you picked look good together. You can use many bold colors, but organize them in a harmonic palette.
