About This Class

a32a34e6

The first in a series of classes looking at how to make the most of social media for your creative business.

In this class we will create one of my favourite pieces of social media content, a flatlay photograph.

There’s no need to worry about buying new equipment or props. Don’t even panic if you’re not a snap happy social media user. I’ll show you how I create images using my phone’s camera and items I use every day as an illustrator (Northern Bird Designs), seamstress and alternative embroiderer (Scavenger Annie).

By the end of this class you will have an image that will tell a story about you, using items from around your home. This will help to further tell your creative story when you share it on your social media.

We’ll look at how to arrange your props, edit your images to make them pop and how to find out the best times to post.

It’s time to bring your creativity to your social media & provide your audience with a peek behind the camera.
