Illusion Of a Perfect Life or Misleading Instagram Pictures and Why You Shouldn’t Trust Everything You See

1497

When you open your Insta feed you probably see a lot of perfect looking people, who eat healthy yet fancy food, wear famous brands, travel around the world and so on. But what really hides behind those wonderful shots?

Nexter.org decided to look behind-the-scenes and see what it actually looks like.

Filters

We all want our pictures to look better than real life, that is why we crop them, use filters, add more contrast, highlights and shadows.

Chompoo Baritone, a photographer from Bangkok, decided to demonstrate how the pictures are really taken and what the surroundings look like. Not that pretty now, right?

Danger

Everyone wants their photos to get as many likes as possible and to make that happen you need to post regularly but also make your photos unique, surprising and astonishing. But sometimes people go way too far. For example, they climb the highest buildings like these guys:

Yes, this looks breathtaking, but this is so dangerous. And at the end of the day, is it really worth it?

Katarina Elle Zarutskie, a model from California, shared her sad story about trying to make a cool photo with nurse sharks. Looks really amazing, right?

But shortly after this photo was taken, one of the sharks bit Katarina and dragged her underwater. Luckily, she managed to break free, but on that day she literally put her life at stake and for what? A couple hundred likes?

Fake Photos

Popular blogger Carolyn Stritch decided to prove everyone that is actually full of lies. She posted a photo in front of the Disney Castle and said that she is going to celebrate her birthday there. And again, perfect photo, everybody is jealous, she has a lot of likes and comments.

But a few days later she said that this was just a prank.

This proves that not everything you see on your feed is true. Most people spend their days at home, wearing pajamas and surfing the Internet.

“We all want to see others’ bright life moments and show all best things that we have,” says Carolyn.
