11 Malaysian Instagrammers That Absolutely Slay The Flatlay Game

Flatlays have taken the Instagram world by storm, and now everyone’s carefully arranging their food/makeup/books/anything and everything else, angling their cameras from high up, and taking that picturesque shot.

If you don’t know what a flatlay is, it’s pretty much just arranging your photo’s subject matter flat on a floor or table, and taking your picture from directly above it. The result is clean, neat, and uber pleasing to the eyes.

But if you’ve ever tried to take a flatlay picture before, you’ll know that it’s not as easy as it sounds. Arranging your subject matter isn’t simply just dumping your #OOTD on the ground and snapping a picture of it. All kinds of factors come into play to take the perfect flatlay, from the lighting to the photo’s composition, from the choice of background all the way to the smallest of details within your shot.

So if you’ve hit a wall on your flatlay journey and just can’t seem to get it right, check out these Instagram accounts that are the ultimate #flatlaygoals. They absolute nail their flatlays, and you can get some inspiration from them to execute your own! And as a bonus, they’re all Malaysians too!
