Flat Lay photo contest

This weekend, we want you to show off your style! Snap a flat lay shot for the Weekend Art Project, and share it with the hashtag #wapFlatLay.

Flat lays have become a super popular way to show off your style, and we’re obsessed! When planning out your shot, be sure to select objects of varying sizes, textures, and colors. For example, a pair of ripped jeans could look great with a stack of gold bangles or a simple white shirt. A bottle of bright nail polish or a neon clutch may add a much-needed pop of color against a neutral color palette. Most importantly, your composition should reflect you and your unique style.

Next, you’ll need to select your background—white or neutral backgrounds tend to work well. Be sure that you’re shooting near a natural light source so that your shot isn’t spoiled by artificial lighting.

Finally, arrange everything on your background. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different compositions—pay attention to negative space in your image, the angle and positioning of your objects, and how the colors and textures interact with one another. Getting the right shot might take a few tries, but it’s worth it!

Once you’ve got your shot, share it with the hashtag #wapFlatLay to enter the Contest!
