Flat Lay Photography

Flat lay images are incredibly popular at the moment. From cosmetic companies to restaurants, there's a good chance you’ve seen at least one flat lay image in the last week.

These images, when done correctly, can be incredibly eye-catching. Composition and lighting are two main elements that will help elevate your image and give it a professional quality. Both of these are covered in more detail in our flat lay photography live workshop.

Whether you choose to refine your lighting techniques, or try something new and experiment with tilt-shift techniques, there’s a great amount of creative freedom this week. You might even come out of it with a new image for your portfolio!
