    Hi Shelby, received a perfectly timed email today. You do NOT need to know how to draw! Enjoyed the attachment an then further browsed an came across 9 Tips taking beautiful flat lay out, which was very informative an made me think about how I present my art. I do use my phone, but have a Nikon Coolpix B700 which I’m presently using for taking photo’s. Don’t have Adobe Photoshop, lightroom or any other program. Wondering can I use my Nikon to do the flat lay’s an then somehow get them to my instagram post. This might be very unusual an I fully understand if not appropriate to ask. If you ever have time can you have a look at my instagram @joanpringlecanning Appreciate any suggestions. Kind regard’s Joan

    1. Hi Joan,

      You absolutely can, and should use your Nikon to take pictures for Instagram. None of the pictures on my Instagram were taken with my phone. I always take pictures with my Canon, upload them to my computer, edit them, transfer them to my phone, and then post them. I hope this helps.

  4. Great article. I appreciate you recommending a decent yet not over the top camera (that a lot of people may not be able to afford.) I will definitely be bookmarking this page for future reference. Thank you.
