INSTAGRAM VS REAL LIFE

00:49:00

With over 3000++ posts on instagram, it is pretty obvious to say that I am really active on instagram. I pretty much post about everything from narcissistic selfies to "inspirational" quotes to screen shots of convos with my friends and food. So here are a few things of what actually happens before those instagram posts.




1) FOOD PHOTOS

I personally think I fail whenever I take photos of food which is why I am not a foodie blogger or have a food account.

Expectations : So many food on the table and they ALL look really good.



Reality : An awkward bowl of laksa with a very awkward part of a glass from the right corner. And unlike the photo above, mine just looks...like it would receive an "uhm okay" and not a "WOW!". 
I know of some people who have friends to switch on their flash so that when they take the photos of the food from top down, there is no awkward shadows. 




2) SELFIE

Expectations : Everything is detailed and blemishes are gone. It seems like I am flawless.



Reality : Multiple shots of myself but in the end only choosing 1 picture out of the many that I have taken. Why? Because I am vain like that and I am not shy to admit it. After that series of self-loving photographs of myself, it's time to use my filter to set that mood that I want.

3) TAKING FULL #OOTD SHOTS

expectations : Probably get someone to take for you or use a tripod stand

Reality : Balancing phone or camera on a stack of books and setting cameras on self timers. After that, walking to and fro to check on the photos. Like the selfie, multiple shots are taken before a perfect one is finally chosen. If there was an award for most used space for photographs on iphone, it would be me.


4) QUOTES OF THE DAY

Because sometimes tumblr is just not enough to show how wise or "deep" we really are at times. And hey, it is so much faster to upload as compared to tumblr.


So there you have it, just a short post from me with regards to how people or rather I am like on instagram vs what actually goes on behind a post. Hope you liked it. :)


5) HASHTAGS

Hashtags are used very often on instagram and twitter. I tend to abuse the hashtags at times just for the fun of it. In real life, no one actually cares. Imagine how life would be if you say hashtag to every word or thoughts that you have . AHHAA
