You don't have to be an aspiring influencer in order to understand the photo struggle. A flattering and seemingly effortless photo requires just the right balance of good lighting, angles, and posing. In the olden days, people relied on professional photographers and studios to get their glamour shots, but in the age of quality camera phones and viral content, everyone feels one photo away from internet fandom.
All it takes is a few behind-the-scenes shots to undo the sheen of someone's flawless Instagram feed, and honestly, meta photos of people taking photos are far more interesting to look at than pristine glamour shots.
The meta Instagram account Influencers In The Wild was launched in order to poke fun of the age of #content and 24/7 influencing.
The Influencers In The Wild feed is filled with photos of people trying to cash in on the "likes," and the lengths people go to for a dramatic shot are both hilarious and terrifying.
