In order to get more likes and followers, people always try to upload eye-catching and flawless pictures to their social media accounts. They often use photo editors or other tricks before sharing a picture, and sometimes these photo manipulations can change the original beyond recognition.

We at Enlighten chose a series of behind-the-scenes photos to prove that the creation of a modern masterpiece for social networks is the result of the hard work from both the model and the photographer.
