Slay The Flat Lay 

The photography trend that has taken Instagram by storm. Flat laying. Arranging or laying objects on a flat surface and taking an image from a birds’ eye point of view. Australian fashion blogger Margret Zhang of Shine By Three is an expert in this field. There are a few simple steps to flat laying that will get you top quality images. First step is to pick a theme, make up, accessories, clothes, food, stationary or you can go the full monty and mix it all together. Next is colours, multi-colour, monochrome or one simple colour, or you can choose your items based on the season.

The best background is simple, white, black or marble. If you have a fur rug or blanket this adds texture to the image.

Once you have the background and items it’s time to lay it all out. There’s two different ways to do this. The organised mess or the jigsaw puzzle.
