If you’ve spent more than 10 minutes on Instagram, you’ve probably come across a flat lay. This term regards to a top-down perspective on an image, and it’s all the rage this season. But to be honest, styling a flat lay is one of my favorite past times. During my in-person photo styling workshop, my attendees didn’t know where to begin when it came to styling a flat lay. And I’ll tell you the same thing I told them: Start with an inspiration pic.
That’s right, I ALWAYS start with some form of inspiration. This gives me a great jumping off point for knowing where to place my objects in the shot. Once I’ve put a few pieces down, my creative juices kick in and I’m able to style for hours.
Need inspiration? I got you! Below are thirty flat lay inspiration pics from past projects and clients. Be sure to pin it to save for later 😉
