Nowadays , flatlays picture is a trending thing in photography. Mostly, it can be seen all over Instagram. Usually people make flatlays is to review about products , teasers , ads in a magazine and even product launching.

Some flatlays picture also can be use as a stock photos for blogs.

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 . 

NATURAL LIGHTING
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 .

*that table is my photo background for my flatlays*


WHITE BACKGROUND
Obviously , if you want to take a white background photo / flatlays . You need a white table or white carpet or white table cloth or white wall , anything in white lah. Hihihi.

For me , I usually use white table or white carpet or white wall .

Table that I usually use can be seen in the picture above .

PROPS 
This part you can use anything depends on your creativity and theme of flatlays you want to do .

I love to have fresh flowers to be in my every flatlays. Usually , I will bought a bunch of fresh flowers from Floristika just for flatlays . But , if I don't have time to buy a flowers . I will just use anything that I have as my props.

Example : books , shawl , scarf , makeups , shoes , clothes , shades , what inside your bags , laptop , camera and many more .

ANGLE
Not every angle can shot a nice picture . So, you need to identify which angle can you have a nice picture . I will always shot several pictures in several angle . Most of my favourite angle is to take a shot from above or side . Depends on the lighting too . =D

CAMERA
All types of camera will do . Most of my flatlays , I will be using iPhone . It's easy to take around , editing and post . Hihihi . But , sometimes I'll using my NX 300M Samsung camera . Depends on the situation and lighting too. 

EDITING
Here comes the last part of the tips . Some of the pictures will not have a perfect tone . So , a lil bit of editing needed . I'll always use iPhone for editing . The apps that I usually use are iPhone editing tools and Snapseed. That's why I love to take my flatlays using iPhone . Hihihi .


FLATLAYS COLLECTION
Oh , below are some of my flatlays collection or photo that you can just free save it . 

Some pictures have a blank space that you can just add any text ( actually that type of picture I'll be using for teasers ) . 

That's are all the tips I can shared to take a white background flatlays . Happy trying , folks.
