Flatlays are all the rage on Instagram at the moment. You know, those carefully curated top view shots that are popping up all over your feed? (Think the contents of a handbag strewn across a white linen sheet, or a decadent brunch spread shot from above.)

But how can you master this social media trend? Follow our top tips and you’ll be a flatlay pro in no time!

  • A light background will make your items pop (think white marble, crisp linen or white washed wood.)
  • Test your objects to see if they look good from a top view.
  • Leave a little space between your objects to balance your composition.
  • Pick a theme (make sure all of your items have a common thread tying them together.)
  • Take your photo during the day (and if possible, near a natural light source.)
