It’s nothing new that Instagram-celebrities can sometimes make “common people” feel inadequate. Lifestyle blogger Scarlett London recently came under fire because of just that, and it all started over a photo of her “perfect morning.” The photo features a stack of pancakes; or, should I say, a bunch of tortilla wraps she presented as pancakes? The photo went viral because of this, but it escalated quickly when people started criticizing her for making her life look “perfect.”
Bloggers in general are not photographers. But, they regularly need photography. Many simply inhabit inexpensive or CC-Zero stock photography websites to find images to attach to their content. Pretty much everybody owns a camera these days, though, even if it’s just the one in their phone.
This video from COOPH with blogger & YouTuber Jenny Mustard shows you how you can get some great results very simply. They’re pretty effective examples that even beginners should have no time getting to grips with.
Have you ever noticed how rockstars seem to pull the weirdest faces while soloing? Still images make them look even worse.
Glasgow-based blogger Michael M. used photoshop to replace the musicians’ instruments with giant slugs and those faces suddenly make perfect sense.
This humorous series “was just meant to be a fleeting, transitory wee laugh”, Michael told DIYP, but it gained serious momentum and got featured all over the web.
“It’s just really lovely to see people embracing the idea of these horrible big slugs on their favourite rock legends and it making some sort of weird sense”.
