GUIDE TO TAKING AN AESTHETICALLY PLEASING FLAT LAY .1

For today’s post, I’d be sharing some basic things you need to know that’d help you create amazing flat lays. The number 1 GUIDE on my list is – – – – – INSPIRATION & CREATIVITY.

First off, before we get into this, a FLAT LAY is simply an image of objects of any kind creatively arranged on a flat surface(I hope I you understand ). Here’s a flat lay I took which we’d be using for today’s post. 

For you to decide to take any flat lay, you must have some sort of inspiration backing your decision, if not,I’m afraid you’ll make a total mess out of it. I mean every hair style we make,we must have seen it on someone or liked it well enough to want to make it or do something similar right……

This flat lay was inspired by this beautiful pearl earrings(as funny as it may seem). well,i decided to create some content with it and show it off.

NB: this is also a flat lay

now we’ve seen the INSPIRATION of the flat lay,lets get into the CREATIVITY part. Guys, it’s one thing to have something you want to create a flat lay with and it’s another thing to be creative with it. Being creative in taking a flat lay has to do with your prop choice and how you use it. Let’s see the few props i used in creating that flat lay

 

props used: magazines and a rattan bag. NB: this is a flat lay too

Initially,all i wanted was to have the earrings fixed to the bag and then placed on a table. Tried it and it looked so tacky. i’d show you……

TACKY!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you do at this point,would you give up because it’s not coming out great? No sweet heart,all you need to do is to be creative. now,having seen the tacky outcome of my first try, i decided to use some fashion magazines as a backdrop and it turned out pretty cool.

You can also source for ideas on Pinterest and recreate it. That’s all the juice on today’s GUIDE on how to ace a flat lay,see you soon with the next tip. Hope you found this post helpful. Love Always!
