Photographer Unveils Truth Behind Instagram Photos

There is more than meets the eye on Instagram.

Whether you admit it or not, your photos on Instagram don’t exactly reflect what REALLY happens in your life. Sometimes, we need to crop and filter things out to show others how perfect our lives are. Indeed, Instagram has become an avenue for people to create an entirely different identity for themselves.

This is what Bangkok-based photographer Chompoo Baritone tried to show in an intriguing photo series which reveals the truth behind unrealistic images on Instagram.

Baritone, who studied photography in King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Thailand, superimposed Instagram photos on top of another scene to show photos which Instagram users don’t want to reveal. Through careful cropping and editing of colours and angles, users can easily stretch the truth in photos.

Baritone’s brilliant satirical series challenges the way we present our lives online.

By

Some women in their late 50s are either looking forward to an early retirement, wanting to spend more time with their family or taking care of their grandchildren. There are also those who prefer travelling or completing their bucket lists.

The 59-year-old-grandmother Yasmina Rossi has another way of living her life to the fullest. She was born in France in 1955 and raised on the island of Corsica.

You Might Not Take A Selfie Ever Again After Watching This Terrifying Video

Apparently, she’s not alone when she took a selfie.

By

Being an avid fan of the horror/thriller movie genre, I believe I have seen it all. The plots of those movies usually revolve around evil possessions, poltergeists, maniacal psychopaths, zombies, mutations, vampires, werewolves, and zombies. The list does not end there of course.

Sometimes, when you watch those movies, you can already guess what's going to happen next. That’s exactly why great storytelling and acting are vital to a fan like me. The theme can be so old and worn-out, but given an excellent script and great direction, the film can be mind-blowing.

A good horror film knows how to play with the audience’s imagination. It knows how to use the score and the lighting to keep its viewers on the edge of their seats. It has to capture the viewer’s attention and make them relate to the characters. Every scene is like a song that gradually builds up until it reaches the climax. The story does not have to be lengthy---all it needs are the right elements to make you jump out of your seat or scream. Like this short film....
