Ever since I’ve gotten back to blogging, I want to up my photography game and been spending time on Instagram looking at flat lays for inspiration. For those of you that don’t know what a flat lay is, basically means shooting an image from above. Flat lays are the most popular form of photography across the blogging community and I’m not surprised as it’s a great way to get creative and tell a story. At first, I found it difficult to find instagram accounts that are dedicated to flatlays but my perseverance paid off when I came across these 3 that are 100% #flatlaygoals from the composition, themes and colour scheme:
This picture perfect account features flat lays from all across the globe. 99.9% of the post are food based so it’s perfect if you have a food blog or want to start a food blog or simply just love photography. You can tag/contact them in your flatlays so you can be featured on their page.
This flat lay account features a mixture of fashion, food and beauty. I clicked on their website and learnt that they are an affiliate company where creatives can make money from their flat lays. How amazing is that?! The process is simple. All you have to do is create a flat lay which turns into a digital shop. Once this is created, people can buy products straight from you flat lay. You can collaborate with brands or find brands that are featured in your flat lay and link them to it. You can create and share your flat lay on all your social media accounts to drive traffic while getting paid for sales. You can read all about it here.
Another food flat lay, centred around breakfast. The most important meal of the day. Again perfect for foodies. You will find cups of coffee, croissants, waffles and flowers.
Are you a fan of flat lays? What are your favourite type of flatlays?
