Sometimes , I've given a task by my manager to do a teasers for my team event at the office . And , I love to do flatlays photo with a white background as an event teasers . White background makes a picture or flatlays looks clean and bright .
Here , I want to share some tips to do a white background photo for flatlays / teasers .
Mostly , a picture that I take . I don't like to use flash . For me , flash can make the originality tone of the picture change . Unless you are using a DSLR camera . Hihihihi.
That's why I love to take picture at the areas that have a natural lighting . Lucky for me , my parents renovated the house and there are a glass area at the porch . So , that area become my so called studio if I wanted to take a good picture with a good natural lighting .
