We all know a lot of effort goes into getting that perfect Instagrammable shot, and yet social media seems to be forever flooded with aesthetic photos. The behind-the-scenes of these gorgeous photos though, might not always be as pleasing to the eye. For instance, these influencers shared real images of how they look as compared to their photoshopped pictures posted online.
As per a report in HT, a new Twitter trend called ‘The setup vs the shot’ has surfaced in which people are revealing all the secret tips and tricks that go behind making the photographs what they look like, from the lighting to the model. The tweets people are sharing comprise of two images- one on the left depicting the raw, unfiltered setting or background, and one on the right showcasing the final, edited photograph. It definitely draws light upon how much work and effort goes into making a single photograph.
Have a look at some of the examples and decide for yourself as to how far would you be willing to go for that perfect shot:-

The reality is often starkly different from what appears on our social media feeds, and this trend proves that. Do you also have a ‘Setup vs shot’ photograph of your own? Share them with us!
On the flip side, we have also often come across many stories of hilarious photoshop pranks and fails. For instance, when people asked a Photoshop artist to ‘fix’ their photos, so he did the exact opposite. Check it out and let us know what you think!
