People frequently only share carefully staged photographs of themselves online, thus social media does not necessarily provide a true view of reality. This may make their followers feel inadequate. As a result, Georgie Clarke has been criticizing Instagram’s “perfection.” On her Instagram page, she posted two quite different photos.
The Londoner snapped two very different photographs seconds apart to illustrate that influencers are also human.
To get Insta-worthy images, she selects the optimum lighting, pulls in her tummy, and pushes out her chest in the first.
She then relaxes her body in the second shot to demonstrate what she looks like without posing.
“It’s all in the pose,” Georgie captioned the photo.
“I know it’s hard to believe, but models and influencers have mastered the art of transforming their bodies into appealing perspectives.
“When you undertake this kind of business, you have to shoot every day… Just one photograph, I spent hours analyzing what looks nice, what doesn’t, what’s attractive and trying out hundreds of various postures.
“We rapidly figure out what works and what doesn’t.
“So when we publish an image on Instagram, we’re posting our favorite shot, which includes the optimum lighting, angle, posture, and the best overall shot.
“And don’t forget, if any of those aspects didn’t work for us… we can very quickly alter that image to appear perfect,” Georgie said.
“This is why I urge you not to compare yourself to influencer and model photos because it isn’t accurate.
“The image has been altered in a variety of ways and skillfully edited to produce something utterly unbelievable.
“You are perfect just the way you are, and if you forget that, tell yourself that everything here is a ruse; it isn’t real.”
The post of the reality TV star received over 29,000 likes and hundreds of nice comments.
Many people believe Georgie’s unique approach to Instagram has given them more self-assurance.
“This is incredible!” one commenter said. It’s often difficult to believe they’re not all flawless.
“Your posts serve as a reminder to me.”
“Oh Georgie, you showed us that even a beautiful woman like you has flaws,” said another.
“It goes a long way toward making me feel better about myself. Thank you very much.”
“We need to stop comparing ourselves to other people’s edited versions,” a third added.
