Before and After
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
Are you on Instagram
? It's a fun photo editing app that also has a social element. You can follow your friends' photo streams, leave comments, etc.
I think I've realized it's appeal: The filters are so darn forgiving. Slap a filter on a photo...it instantly evens up skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles are softened, and BAM!!!! Just like that, I look like I do in my mind
instead of what I look like in real life
. Well done Instagram. Well done.
Before and after.
Who else suffers from looking so much better in a dimly lit mirror and in your mind's eye than you look on camera? I was talking to a friend about this, and she admitted that in her mind she has perfect posture and never has a tummy pooch. Just how how looks when she stands up straight and sucks in her tummy in front of the mirror!
I like my mind's reality. I choose to live there, and avoid cameras and unfiltered photos that drag me back to the truth....
The Bossios had this to say:
I will require photos with filters from now on! You are beautiful anyway, but the filter one looks modelesk.

Thank you for being brave enough to post the before as well, I am finding that highly interesting. Maybe I can view magazine/tv pictures in a different 'light' now.
