Flat lay

Hello everyone! 

Here are some of the flat lays that were made by me throughout this year. As you can see I always choose white background because it looks so minimal and your main content comes into the center of attentionI often choose just a few things, maximum  5, because I don’t like when it’s too much. On the contrary, I did see some of the flat lays that were made with a lot of things and still looked great, so it’s not impossible!

Never the less, flat lays are kind of my favorite pictures on Instagram. They’re something between real art photography and selfies. And the best part – it is fun to make them and anyone can do it. 

Ćao svima! Ovo su neki of flet lejova koje sam napravila tokom godine. Kao što možete da vidite, uvek biram belu pozadinu jer je minimalističkog izgleda i glavni sadržaj je centru pažnje. Često biram samo par stvari, najviše 5, zato što jednostavno ne volim kada ih ima previše.  Nasuprot tome, videla sam neke flet lejove koji su napravljeni sa puno stvari a da su izgledali sjajno, tako da, nije nemoguće!

Bez obzira na to, flet lejovi su moje omiljene slike na Instagramu. Oni su nešto između pravih umetničkih fotografija i selfija. I najbolji deo – zabavno ih je praviti i svako to može.

The beauty of a flat lay is that you can use almost anything. I mean, ANYTHING, as long as it has its part in the photo and it doesn’t stand out. In the picture above I used wet wipes. I mean wtf? But, it does make sense. The packaging is cute and it has its purpose. Every item says “Summertime”. I also frequently use cups of coffee, food, books, magazines, beauty products, clothes, perfumes and flowers.

Lepota flet leja je u tome što se za njega može iskoristiti skoro bilo šta. Mislim, BILO ŠTA, sve dok ima svoj deo u fotografiji i dok ne iskače iz nje. U slici iznad sam ubacila vlažne maramice. Mislim, wtf? Ali, ima smisla. Pakovanje je slatko i ima svoju svrhu. Svaka stvar govori ,,Leto”.  Takođe, često koristim šolje kafe, hranu, knjige, časopise, proizvode za lepotu, odeću, parfeme, i cveće.

You may have noticed these cute calendars on Instagram. They are made by Ona Ena. I really like them, they are minimal – exactly like I want my flat lays to be. Whenever I see that month is coming to an end, I start planing a flat lay with this calendar for the next month. I never thought I would be happy with endings, but now I am. After endings, new beginnings are coming, but people often forget about that. 

Možda ste primetili ove slatke kalendare na Instagramu. Napravljeni su od strane Ona Ena. Jako mi se sviđaju. Minimalistični su – baš kao što želim da i moji flet lejovi budu. Kad god vidim da se približava kraj meseca, ja počnem da planiram flet lej sa ovim kalendarom za sledeći mesec. Nikada ne bih pomislila da ću biti srećna sa krajevima, ali eto jesam. Posle krajeva dolaze novi počeci, ali ljudi to često zaborave.

Many people have asked me how is my background so white; well, I stopped with that, it was to extreme, but now I finally found some balance. You can’t be afraid to lower your exposure, I learned that the hard way. The most important thing is that your next photo matches your Instagram feed. You can see the preview of the Instagram photos with Later app. I have planned 6 photos a head. If you want to know how I edit my Instagram photos, click HERE.

Mnogi ljudi su me pitali kako mi je tako bela pozadina; pa, sa time sam prestala, bilo je previše ekstremno, ali sada sam konačno našla ravnotežu. Ne smete se bojati da smanjite osvetljenost, naučila sam to na teži način. Najbitnija stvar je da se vaša sledeće slika uklapa u Instagram galeriju. Možete da vidite kako će to izgledati pomoću aplikacije Later. Ja sam isplanirala 6 slika unapred. Ako želite da znate kako editujem slike za Instagram, kliknite OVDE.
