2. Other Crochet Items

You must have other crochet items from your previous projects in your keep, so why not show them in your photo. I select amigurumi cloth to pair with my amigurumi when I shoot as they compliment the end result better.

3. Wood Items

Wood can bring natural vibe to your shooting shot. I sometimes use old wood board/ sign I can find around my father’s garage to add rustic element in my photo.

4. Pants and Natural Cloth

Pants have texture that we can use as canvas. Same goes to natural cloth that we wear as it will not dissect focus from actual object – the product. It is important to overdo your canvas and other props as not making your intended object to fade.

5. Paper Box

Use paper box to put your product. I usually used nude colour paper box when I shoot.

6. Crochet Tools (Hook, Scissor and beads)

Sometimes I also incorporate my crochet tools when designing my flatlay canvas. I think it brings idea to people about my pictures origin. Some of them may not familiar with crocheting so tools may help.

7. Personal Items (Scrunchie, Fabric Belt & Business Card)

Many creators face copyright problem so I think business card helps to avoid being copied as compared to watermark. Scrunchie usually has natural colour so it also suitable to be used in my flatlay canvas as it will not stand out too much. Fabric belt on the other hand can be turned to ribbon.

8. Fabric (Jute bag and 2 toned fabric)

I always keep fabrics usually used for patchwork as props when designing my flatlay canvas. Jute bag on the other hand gives out home made taste in my picture.

9. Coaster

You can also use coaster which has cute pattern on it when designing your flatlay canvas.

10. Tablecloth

I use dinner tablecloth to match with 2 toned fabrics as the base before putting other items.

11. Your Own Hand

Hand is powerful in giving out the real idea about size and how it looks when people actually hold your product when they are using it. So, just use your hand !

14. Hold Your Product

I am so fond of product picture where there is existence of human hand because it gives me information about it’s estimated size before I buy the product. That’s why I think holding my product when taking picture is a must.

15. Plants

I love green plants (not flowers) because I think it has high esthetical value especially when paired with anything wood and rattan.
