Each and every day thousands of pictures are uploaded to social media. People have a subconscious need to share their moments, food and even pictures of themselves with others. Yes, the infamous photo we all know and are probably guilty of capturing, the selfie. Instagram has been helping to grow this photo phenomenon since the app’s release in 2010.
No matter the reason for snapping and posting selfie photos, whether it’s narcissism or they are just having a great hair day that only comes once in a full moon, people want to do everything they can to look their best. There are constant retakes of pictures at different angles, light, poses and so on to make sure the capture gets the best photo opportunity possible to release to their followers. You or I may only have a couple hundred or thousand followers to show our filtered snapshots to. Imagine the pressure of posting a selfie if you had MILLIONS of followers, like Beyoncé or Kim K.
