20 Reasons Not To Trust Photographs People Share On Social Media

There are so many perfect photographs appearing all over social media these days that will make you question your creative capabilities. From people looking flawless to cars drifting on beaches, you will probably think everyone on social media has a perfect life, except you.

But before you get discouraged and give up photography (or your way of life) forever, you need to check the pictures on this list made by Bored Panda and see the reality behind the inception of much of the photography seen on social media.

Sometimes a good eye and a decent camera aren’t enough, and many stunning photographs were created by teams of people spending a lot of time and resources for the final result to look the way it does. Does that discredit it as good photography, though? Of course not. Does it mean it’s the only way forward? Nope, it doesn’t.

It sure is worth checking out, though, as it will provide aspiring photographers with a new perspective (and perhaps an idea or two!).
