Szuperszexi modellfotók vs a valóság

Ez a 33 éves kreatív fotós lerántja a leplet az Instagram tökéletesség utáni hajszájáról.

Danae Mercer szerint minden a megfelelő fényekről és szögekről szól, olykor pedig egy kis Photoshop is bejátszik, nyilván. Képein azt mutatja be, hogy a tökéletes Insta-fotókon ugyan nem látszik a narancsbőr, az úszógumi, a bőrhibák és a háj, de ettől még egyáltalán nem biztos, hogy élőben ezek ne tűnnének fel.

Úgy véli, az ember teste állandóan változik, ezért kár volna ilyen múlékony dologhoz kötni bárki értékét is.

What you SEE versus what you DON’T – but also, CELLULITE is NOT UNHEALTHY. It isn’t. A well-intending gal slid into my comments the other day pointing out how cellulite will go away if you detox with green juice and cleanse all the things. A less well-intending group of men commented on an article about my runny a$$ and how I needed to get to the gym. So let’s just nip that one in the bud: Cellulite isn’t unhealthy. It exists on over 80% of women. It CAN increase with fat stores, and decrease in the opposite way, but it’s also simply linked to how women STORE fat – something we NEED to SURVIVE. We MUST HAVE IT. I’m a health journalist. I’m a certified fitness trainer. So these things matter to me. But more than that, I’m a woman that must exist in this WORLD. In a WORLD where somehow companies have MARKETED and TWISTED cellulite SO MUCH that it is seen as abnormal, as a ‘flaw’, as unhealthy. And if I have to experience these things, even in such an incredibly PRIVILEGED thin white body? I can only imagine how exponentially worse it must be for more marginalized groups. So let’s repeat it again and again: Cellulite is NORMAL. It is HEALTHY. And it’s something I sure as heck hope we SEE a whole lot more. We’re in this together girls. You got this. x #feminist #weartheshorts #selflove #cellulite #stretchmarks

Insta vs Reality / OR changing your BODY does not change your BODY IMAGE. There was a time in my life when I was obsessed with being thin. I skipped meals. Memories. Moments. I was convinced if I lost those next 10lbs, if I hit this magical number in my mind, I would feel good. Strong. WORTHY. I was convinced I would be LOVED. And that maybe, just maybe, I would love myself too. But here’s the thing: Shrinking changed NOTHING. Except some number on a scale. Now I am heavier. Older. And I have never felt more confident in my body or in myself. It’s still a work in progress (always, maybe always), but I see my CELLULITE and don’t feel shame. I see my limbs with all their bits in ALL THE LIGHTING and love what they can do for me. And I see my heart, clumsy as it is, stumbling as it is, and I let it be. I let it exist without judgement. So today, I want to remind you something it too me far too long to learn: Changing our APPEARANCE won’t FIX what’s going on INSIDE. We can train and sweat and eat all the greens, but if we don’t solve what’s happening in our hearts or in our heads, those thoughts will remain. Those battles will remain. Whether they are related to how we see our BODIES Or how we view OURSELVES. The work starts inside. In our heads. In our hearts. In the quiet, raw, tender bits of our soul, that sit so fragile and so shy just crying out for love. In all these parts, that’s where the true change happens. And that’s something we can never really share in an insta/reality photo. But we can certainly like all the same. You got this girl. x Photo @chiclebelle who is just a wondrous woman. #selflove #bodyconfident #selflove #iweigh #feminist #mentalhealth #edrecovery

LIGHTING changes PHOTOS – But also, it doesn’t change a THING ABOUT YOU. First, the technique: In the shadows, my cellulite disappears. In the harsher direct window light, it pops out to say hello. And this is pretty common. It’s the same thing as sunrise / midday. At sunrise, soft side light tends to whisk away lumps and bumps. By midday that light is top-down and pretty aggressive. Cellulite and stretchmarks are on full display. And now, the actual message: Next time you start to compare yourself to a stranger on social media, remember this. Remember how lighting can be manipulated to create ‘perfection’. The same for angles. Posing. Squeezing. Camera position. Mirror types. Oil on the skin. And so on, and on, and on. So don’t compare your thousands of angles, your billions of moments, to their PERFECT SECOND SNAPSHOT. You, lovely lady, you’re great in all lights. You’re wonderful from all angles. And you’re incredible in all moments. Because you’re already you. And that’s more than enough. #selflove #weartheshorts #selfacceptance #feminist #instagramvsreality #bodyconfident #womenirl

Do you SIT differently in PUBLIC than you do in PRIVATE? I did. For YEARS I did. In public, I would pose. Squeeze. Arch. Tighten. In private, I’d sit comfortably: shoulders relaxed, body loose, just being human. And I imagine that maybe, just maybe, I’m not alone. I read an article once talking about the BEST WAY to POSITION your body on the beach. It was all ‘knees up, core tight, never lay flat’. And if you had extra wiggles and jiggles around the hips and thighs? The article recommended DIGGING A HOLE in the SAND. To put that bum into. So it would, you know, look LESS. As a teen, I did these things. And then, as an adult, I still held myself sucked in or avoided crossing my legs because heaven forbid anyone should see my CELLULITE. Things have CHANGED in this last year. I wish they would have changed so much sooner. So today, I just want to remind you: It is OK to sit comfortably. To RELAX while you’re RELAXING. Perfection isn’t the price you pay to exist in a human body. And comfort is pretty darn incredible. Posing is great fun, but NOT POSING doesn’t make you worth ANY LESS. Even if it means your wobbly bits come out on show. Or your skin folds. Or you’re just, well, YOU. Because being YOU is incredible. And worthy. And powerful. In whatever way, shape, or form. You got this girl. Go sit comfortably. x Photos @chiclebelle who is just the best #selflove #selfacceptance #bodyacceptance #iweigh #feminist

Let’s talk EDITING APPS. This transformation took all of two minutes. I smudged out stretchmarks and swapped my bloating for a bum, brightened my eyes and smoothed that great lil mid-forehead vein. In just 120 seconds, I became a SHINIER, GLOSSIER version of myself. And it was incredibly easy. I used to edit my photos like this. When I was recovering from my relapse, I felt delicate. Insecure. So I would use apps like these to make myself THINNER. Always, always thinner. Because in my mind, thin was perfect. And maybe if I was perfect, everything would be ok. Maybe I would be loved. So I have NO anger towards people who use these. No anger. Because I’ve been there. Instead I want to stress to YOU how OFTEN it happens. How in addition to posing and lighting and outfit swaps and all the shiny things I talk about on here, there’s always this lil side of technology. And I want to say that if you’re someone who uses these often, Who changes your body or changes your skin or changes YOU, Know you are seen. You are worthy. And you are LOVED, EXACTLY as you already are. No technology-sponsored changes required. Stay safe out there gals. We’re in this together.

BEFORE and AFTER transformations are so gosh darn easy to FAKE. And dodgy brands, like those selling DIET TEAS or DIET JABS (the newest horrible thing to hit the market) often do exactly that. So before I get into the ANGLES and the technique and all that razzle dazzle, I just want to say this: Be careful. Especially to the teens on here, or those of us who have struggled with disordered body image. Be careful. Dodgy companies will use dodgy methods to try to sell you things you don’t need. Things like teas that make you poo or SHOTS that mess up your body or pills that make your heart race. HEALTH goals are incredible. There are LOADS of GENUINE FITNESS transformations on here too. Plenty of REAL ‘before and afters’, which are shared by folks who are proud at all they’ve achieved. Those are incredible. I always have and I always will APPLAUD HEALTH as an act of self love. This post isn’t about that. It’s about the BEFORE AND AFTERS with DIET ADS. Or with DETOX TEAS. Or with the most recent onslaught of SKINNY SHOTS. And all the awful, awful fakery that wraps themselves around products more concerned with MONEY than with WELLNESS. It’s about learning to be careful. And to view the internet with a critical eye — especially where money is involved. Now if you’re curious about HOW I took these PHOTOS, here’s what I did: Pulled my bottoms up higher (longer leg line). Arched my back (waist looks smaller, bum bigger). Popped into my hips. Squeezed my core. Played with light and shadows to hide my cellulite. Swapped into more flattering clothes. And BAM. Before to After in 10 seconds flat. Try it if you fancy. It’s pretty much a back workout. So there you go. Glad you’re here. I hope this helped. Please don’t ever buy a skinny jab. We’re in this together. x #angles #posingtips #selfconfidence #beforeandafter #instagramvsreality #instavsreality
