Join Lexi Daly today as she shares some tips and tricks about doing flat lay photography with your projects.
“Many stampers and paper crafters, whether on a design team or not, photograph their cards to share on various social media platforms – blogs, Instagram, Facebook, etc. The growing popularity of sharing communities, along with the ease of iPhonography, have really enabled the wannabe photographer in me! After a recent thread on the Papertrey Ink Forum, I thought I’d share a few tips for how I approach flat lay photography, a trend that has been gaining speed in paper crafting circles lately. I began taking flat lay photos for my miniatures hobby and then for card photos on Instagram specifically a few years ago, but these days it is my preferred style even for my blog. Head on over for a behind the scenes look and some ideas on how you can use this technique to jazz up your own pictures, too. No new supplies necessary!”
