Kimberly Douglas reveals truth behind Instagram photos

If you look at photos on Instagram, you will encounter a lot of perfectly staged, beautiful people. But even if it often looks as if the pictures were taken completely by chance, there is a lot of work behind it. The American Kimberly Douglas also really goes to great lengths for her photos.


Here are emotional stories that really inspire you. (Scroll down to the article.)


Kimberly doesn’t post self-portraits where she smiles thoughtfully into her coffee cup; rather, it stages itself in front of true dream backdrops. The highlight: Everything takes place in your tiny guest room. With the simplest of things, the 23-year-old conjures up the sets for the shoots and is the woman in front of and behind the camera.

The results are really impressive! But a look behind the scenes is much more interesting. With a lot of humor, the creative jack-of-all-trades gives an insight into what you have to take for the perfect Instagram picture:
