Social media and online content can make everything look a little more perfect than it actually is. Hồ Anh Đức of Vietnam has created a hilarious video that gives us a true to life behind the scenes experience. As photographers many of us can probably relate to manipulating reality in order to show a better version of our selves or our circumstances.
The content we have consumed has always been edited and manipulated in an effort to evoke particular psychological responses. Advertisers have been doing this for years and years, but with the rather recent explosion of social media and portable technology, that same power is now in the hands of your average Joe. Even our every day images have become more orchestrated and pre-planned. This video does a great job of giving us a little behind the scenes view at the reality we now live in.
