Photographer Exposes The ‘Truth’ Behind Professional Portraits, And It’s Pretty Awkward

Posted on Photography 42

We’ve already told you that you shouldn’t trust the pictures posted on social media  and we’re back to remind you that nothing has changed. The photographers are still manipulating angles to make puddles look like lakes, and still use photoshop to make it seem like you’re swinging on a swing made of flowers.

This glamorous illusion was once again shattered by Gilmar Silva, a Brazilian wedding and family photographer, who created the project LUGARxPHOTO (‘place and photo’), in which he compares the behind the scenes pictures with the end result by putting them side by side. And, as it turns out, it proved to be quite an amusing juxtaposition.

Check out the pictures below to find out how the photography magic happens.
