Welcome to another series of Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge!! Asking yourself what is this about? A group of bloggers around the world teamed together to share our crafts, traditions and how’s life in different parts of the planet. Last month we took a needed holiday break but here we are again, full of energy and new ideas. And talking about ideas maybe you are wondering about the title of this month’s challenge… Styling flat lay photographs… Don’t feel bad, I had no idea what was that until about a couple of months ago when one blogging friend wrote a blog post about it. She is so sweet and funny, I recommend reading her blog posts, you will not be disappointed. She has also written and published her first book, So Close to Amazing, and I’m sure it’s worth reading it.
Well, back to the subject, styling flat lay photograps for this month’s challenge…
Why do we need to learn how to styling flat lay photographs? Because we have a blog where we show things we do and things we like, and we want pictures to reflect what we see in real life as accurate as possible.
I have been working on my “normal” photography and I am happy to say that I improved a lot from when I started blogging, but the road is long and I know I can do better.
Here are some examples of recent shots of items from my shop.
Good natural light and pretty things help a lot
I have to admit when I first heard about flat lay photograph I thought it seemed really easy, why people needed tutorials?
I was wrong…
Like totally wrong, it is not easy at all.
There are so many beautiful flat lay pictures we can use for inspiration
It was time to take some courage and try to get some nice pictures of my own. I decided I wanted to photograph a special gift from a friend. Julia makes the most beautiful diaries in the world; they are all handmade and perfectly finished.
I received mine one day without expecting it, along with two pencil cases for my daughters. I loved the detail of my logo on it and I decided to use it for ideas and notes for the blog.
All is in the little details
Isn’t it the sweetest diary?
I made the tea light holders upcycling some glass jars with some twine around the top and some charms I had laying around. You know I am obsessed with recycling and made different things with glass jars, like these pantry storage containers, a vase and a treat jar for our dog.
I learned a lot thanks to this challenge, and it’s been a big one! I am so thankful to my tribe, Mary, Keri, Katrin and Michelle, they are part of my life and I have so much fun with them while we learn lots of things.
Please don’t forget to stop by their blogs to see what they’ve done this month.
