You Won't Be Jealous Of Those Perfect Photos Online After You Look Behind-The-Scenes
"Pics or it didn't happen."
That's the unfortunate millennial mantra that has inundated the lives of nearly the entire globe at this point. There's simply no longer a moment that shouldn't be capture, or at least that's what everybody thinks. It's better to document a seemingly perfect life, than to actually try and live that life. Everyone shares everything about everywhere they've been with everyone doing everything. Only the fact is, they haven't really done anything, except take photos.
But, you might also be wondering how in the world they were able to take this photo. Both of their hands are obviously embracing one another, so how could they have taken this candid picture? Well, that's just it: they didn't. It's obvious these millennials wanted to capture a photo that makes it seem like they're the perfect loving couple, but needed outside assistance to do so, meaning it wasn't candid, and it certainly wasn't in any way romantic.
But, you might want to stop and ask yourself exactly where that beach is? That photo may look incredible, but is there any real evidence they are at a beach? If they were really enjoying themselves at a beach, would they need to stop and snap this picture of their feet in the sand? Well, as we discussed, some people think that sort of thing is enjoyable, but you see what I'm getting at.
But, you might also be wondering where this bush is, and why she's leaned against and how this photo got taken. If this were really a beautiful moment of losing herself in thought, how perfect would it have had to have been for somebody with a professional grade camera to have been there right at that moment as well? That's the point: it (the moment, and the background) was staged.
What do you think? Some are obviously a little farfetched, but it's not completely unlikely that this is how a lot of Instagram-famous people spend their days: staging beautiful photos of moments to make people jealous of their lives, rather than actual living out those moments themselves. Seems pretty boring, and nothing that I would ever be jealous of.
