Glance behind the scenes of ‘perfect’ Instagram photos and ‘ideal’ photoshoots and you’ll find a world full of fun mistakes, uncontrollable laughter, and quirky chaos. And the best thing is, some IG stars decide to open up the door to their less-than-stellar behind-the-scenes shots all by themselves, without any outside pressure.
They’re posting their candid shots alongside the finished pics under the #instagramvsreality hashtag, which has over 167k posts, and it’s a blast. That kind of honesty (while most everyone else is busy running around trying to be perfect online) is not only refreshing, it’s also heartwarming to see some of the back-stage goofiness. (Especially when there’s a fluffy pet involved!)
