Flat Lay Sunday With Some Company

I have been dedicating my Sundays to flat lay photography lately and like to think that it would be my thing every Sunday, in my PJs with the telly on! Luckily, I had flower props courtesy of Natasha…using my home as base for her bridal makeup consultation :p





spring-flowers-for--flat-lay-sunday-photographyMy lovely friend Natasha came over to my house today with some beautiful flowers πŸ˜€ I can always count on her to get me flowers and the perfect prop for my flat lay. It was a girly night in, all things makeup, bridal and oh did I mention…I’m the maid of honour so lots of planing to do! I am becoming a lot more confident with my product photography and still need practice with composition, lighting and general photoshopping as the sun light has been acting way crazy today. Manual mode on my Canon 5D Mark ii can be tricky to keep up with the forever changing weather conditions but I am glad we had sunlight peering through the windows and off course, good practice for me. As I watched over my friend getting her makeup done; it made me realise how little I know about makeup; but; I have learnt a few tricks and stick with what I am really good at…beauty product photography for my blog. The Burberry eye palette in nude blushΒ no.12 is my Christmas gift from sis; a stunning shade right? I was a little cheeky though; my sister asked me what I want for Christmas from Burberry and that I can choose 1 item. I loved the palette, yet I also wanted the lip balm colour tint too so I said to surprise me to choose either or. How could she choose but to get both for me πŸ˜€ I have such great sisters to spoil me! Well, the weekend is over, I am not looking forward to Monday but I am so excited for my weekend plans already πŸ™‚ I will be staying at the Qbic Hotel for a good ol’ review and lifestyle shooting. Any plans for this coming weekend to look forward to?

    Yessss! I love this post! This is a great idea! πŸ˜€

    And this is nice that you are becoming a lot more confident! I totally understand your situation, because *dun dun duuuuun!* next week I’ll have my very first reflex camera! I am soooo happy! So I’ll have to learn how it works, etc. πŸ™‚
    Even though this is not the 1st time I use one, I have to learn because it’s not the same as my fathers. :p
