All of us are more or less aware that Instagram isn’t a platform that depicts the most accurate account of our lives. As a new creator you have certain expectations when it comes to content creation. We debunk them today with these expectations vs reality photos clicked by influencers and hope you get few laughs out of it. We know we did!
Expectations vs Reality #1: That perfect exclusive spot
Influencers believe in exclusivity but it’s difficult to find such a place. You expect going to one but all you find is a crowd.
Expectations vs Reality#2: Money, money everywhere!
You expect getting loads of money from brand collaborations but all you get is barter. Well, the case is different if you’re on DYT app.
Expectations vs Reality #3: That looks easy
Trust me, all those “that looks so, so, so easy” poses are not that easy. Sometimes it’s scary and the other times it isn’t worth posting.
Expectations vs Reality #4: Summer holidays
These shots perfectly encapsulate the expectations and realities of summer vacations. Expectations: Perfect tan, calm, relaxed, soaking up the summer vibes. Realities: Still pale despite sitting in the sweaty sun all afternoon, hungover and a bit bored.
Expectations vs Reality #5: Which way is the wind blowing?
Influencers might want you to believe the world is not a cold and windy place, they might even like you to believe there is never a grey cloud or a gust of wind during the summer months. In this shot, Meijer proves that influencer photos are also victims of wind. Getting the perfect summer-still shot requires multiple goes.
Now, tell u creators, don’t you feel better?
Or do you feel worse?
Maybe you don’t feel anything. That’s alright too.
We live you with one advice. Don’t let the realities of being a creator harsh your buzz. Keep going and keep creating!
