Lies Instagrammers Tell! Photo Series Exposes the Art of Deception



Things aren’t always as they seem on Instagram. It is common knowledge that some Instagrammers exaggerate the truth in their photos – and yes sometimes they straight up lie!

Thai photographer, Chompoo Baritone has created a photo series to reveal what really goes on outside of Instagram’s square frame, Daily Mail reports.

Here are some of the photos in the series:


Baritone’s image shows just how easy it is to create an impression of blue skies and an empty beach


An open panoramic city skyline can be appear amidst even the most cramped rooftops


With the help of a friend outside of the frame anyone can master those difficult yoga postures


Food porn: By holding back pets and keeping the less photogenic food out of shot, a sense of healthy eating can be captured


Solo journey: What could be more inviting than an deserted bike path and bicycle waiting to be ridden?


Baritone’s satirical series questions whether users are actually taking part in the hobbies that they showcase


Green fingers: In the right frame and filter she suggests anyone can appear to have a city garden


Baritone challenges the endless shots of minimalist creative workspaces suggesting there is more than meets the eye on most Instagram feeds


BellaNaijarans, which of these tricks are you guilty of? LOL Don’t lie *wink*

    Lol! I saw Toke Makinwa recently in shorts (very brave of her). I think she uses at the very least 10 filters on her pictures. The state of that woman’s legs is unbelievable.

      Yes “people have time sha”

      One of those superior comments to indicate your life is too busy for the nuances of social media. Girl, puh-lease! Get over yourself.

      but honestly, what if my life is too busy to accomodate the nuances of social media. it doesnt make me more superior than anyone. it just means that instagram is not that important to me. i have other SM platforms like facebook and twitter but instagram is one platform that i am not interested in joining. 🙂
