How do I set up a branded shoot?

It’s time to get creative and design your branded shoot. The overhead flatlay photograph is incredibly popular for lifestyle photography, and you’ll learn how to capture these overhead images in this video.


  • Burst offers free flatlay photography. You can use the images as inspiration or a more advanced technique is to photoshop your product on white onto a flatlay image.
  • Overhead tripod
    • The easiest and least expensive way to set this up (without buying a C Stand, super clamp and weighted sand-bag) is to use a ladder or chair (though be careful!) to stand above the product to take the photos.
  • Lightroom Classic is recommended to taking and evaluating photos. This is a paid app for $9.99 USD per month. Yes, it’s an investment, though it will save you time and money when you take your photos.
