My #duckflatlay

Today is the day! They have the winner already and IT IS NOT ME! I iz sad. I wish I could do more. I even follow a lots of people with great photo on Instagram. I'm getting some inspiration konon lah but everytime I want to do a flatlay...I go blank. Zero. Nada. Of course I want to win this giveaway so bad, but you know that you'll never win but still want to try. Hehe. I guess, not my rezeki. 

Here's my #duckflatlay :












Not bad for a beginner huh? Hahahaha!

So, I've learned few things from this game.

 1.  I need a new bed sheet. Blank white or pastel or something nice with some flowers/aztec thingy.

2. I need a white table!

3. I need to learn to arrange things nicely.

4. I have to squeeze a lot of idea. Thinking outside of the box. (But I can't. pfft)

5. I need an Iphone (ehem)

6. I need more dUCks shawl! 

Maybe I'll make #1 and #2 happening soon! It's been so fun but I need to learn again and again so finally one day, I'll be proud looking at my flatlay :)

Let's dream on.

#flatlay

Did you guys even know #flatlay is? To be honest I just knew about it like... yesterday? I didn't know all this time taking photo from above, that looks reallllllyyyyyy nice is called a flatlay! Now, since #duckscarves is having giveaway (which I'm not going to make it anyway) but still, I want to join the game. Let say it's just for fun or having some experiment named "Can I take a nice flatlay?" Oh, did you know the prize is, iPhone 6 in Gold!!! 

Then, I'm starting to follow some new Queen of Flatlay. I always love Vivy Yusof and Kim Jones but hey I need more inspiration. I've starting to follow @parisinfourmonths and @thepinkdiary. I love pastel colour photo, bright and looks really really really nice. 

So, here's 5 tips that I read Five tips for taking the perfect flat lay Instagram photo on Australia Vogue. (I'm actually reading Vogue? Can someone help to slap me)

1. Choose a basic background 

White or wood backgrounds are the best for any type of flat lay photos because of their versatility and simplicity. A white bed/table and wooden floor are perfect foundations for a flat lay.

2. Take the photo during the day (and if possible, near a natural light source)

Natural daylight is something you will definitely want to maximise in a flat lay because of the shadows cast on the photo when you’re taking it from above. If you attempt to take a flat lay at night, there will be an unflattering phone shadow in your photo that even a flash cannot fix.

3. Test your object to see if it looks good from a bird’s eye point of view

Magazines, books and photographs always look amazing, as they are naturally flat already. Clothes tend to look bulky and stretched from an above angle so fold them in neat halves or boxy shapes to create structure. To add texture to a flat lay, experiment with flowers, lace and small colourful fruits (like strawberries, blueberries and cherries).

4. Leave space between your objects

Make sure to leave a breathable amount of space between your things to prevent the photo from looking too cluttered. If you use an iPhone on iOS7 the ‘square’ function of the camera is a great template for you to arrange the flat lay (and also for later uploading to Instagram, of course!)

5. Pick a theme and stick to it

Too many different elements can be confusing in a flat lay – show the viewer exactly what you’re trying to say with one theme. Luxurious afternoon spent at home? Flowers, macarons, magazine = tick. Having high tea outside? Teapot, sweets, cakes = tick. Assembled an #OOTD? Clothes, sunnies, heels = tick. There’s nothing more overwhelming than a flat lay that has too much going on!
All photos in this post are taken with an iPhone 5S and edited with VSCOcam 

I hope it helps! Let's try to make our own #flatlay :)

What kind of blogger are you?

It's so random today that I've decided to post something on my blog. I've must been really, really, really bored? I have plenty of time to blog anyway, but tell me what should I post as a housewife? How to cook? I'm not good at cooking AT ALL. Should I share my baking recipe? Pfft. I only can bake brownies and chocolate cake. Should I post everyday OOTD? I'm not a fashion freak. I love fashion, but I just don't worship it so much. I love reading fashion blogs,but damn INSECURITIES. People with expensive clothes, bag, jewellery and oh shoes. She must have been so lucky to have a life like that. Ugh. I really don't know how to syukur am I? Hehe.

Anyway, we live in the world that people are going to tell everything on Instagram, Where is this fancy cafe? "Wow, I love the interior of that cafe, where is this? Oh nice cup! "Oh, living in small Kuching Town, everybody is going crazy over new cafe,new place to dine in and I am no exception! :) Kuching is growing goooood people. It's good to have more fancy cafe, but I just hope the food are good and affordable too.

What does she wear today? I've been following some good looking/well-dressed people on my Instagram. Oh, if I do follow you, and now you know why. Hehe. Then again, BOOM! INSECURITIES ALERT. Mostly people are wearing black/dark palette are one of my favourite now. I know, I dislike black. But you can say that black is my new bestfriend. But I'm not going to wear black everyday. Sometimes, I just want to wear all white, pastel colours. I really do. I wish it's simple as that to shop pastel items. Ugh. People with good OOTD, I'm your stalker so beware! 

Good foods. Come on guys, nice pictures of food does not mean the food is delicious. Maybe some of it nyaman gilak gilak but not all the foods on Instagram is thatttttttt great! But, I'm one of those people trying to take good picture of my food, but still, FAIL. I just wondering how did some people taking nice view of the damn food then make the food looks tempting. Pfft. I have and still learning the process. Damn.

Babies/family. Are you that kind of person that take picture of your Grandma, sister, mother, brother, husband or even worst, babies. Everyday babies. I LOVE babies, cute babies then who doesn't? But do you have to Instagram it EVERYDAY. I'm sure you have more interesting things to share? Unlike me, I don't have babies. Sobs. Then, I'm pretty sure I'm one of that kind of mother. Hehe.

Then, everything goes here, BLOG! Well obviously I don't write here as much as you guys. I just envy you guys. Now, I wanna signing off.

Photographer by Ryza Kamil

A little things that I've learnt from this session :
a) Do not complain
Just follow the photographer, whatever he ask you to do, respect his opinion, maybe you can give some ideas but still stay as a team.

b) Do not waste time. Time is gold.

c) Eat before you start :P

d) Learn to make up!!!

e) I should bring more clothes. Haha.

I just want to thank all of you guys for being really nice to me the entire photoshoot. We just met that day, but masyallah you guys are so amazing. I feel like I was in a real photoshoot. Hehe. Thank you big boss of Nyzaa Hijab, Shikin for this opportunity and letting Borneo Kita to join as well. I hope we can work as a team again next time! I'd be happy to help :-)
