Let me ask you a simple question first. Why do you take a photograph? For keeping memories with you and showing the real you to the world. When you apply filters and effects on a photo, you are actually playing with its originality. A photo is taken to show the reality, but when you use filters and effects, you are doing injustice with the photo. You are showing the world which you are not actually. Be proud of yourself and don’t worry about the opinion of others because the world is going to judge you anyway.
Filters and effects put a mask on you and hide your real identity. Stop hiding yourself behind filters and effects, show the world real you. When I take a photo and if it doesn’t appear good in quality even then I don’t delete it because what I like about it is its originality. Even if the photo is poor in quality, it is showing the reality. After applying filters and effects, you break the connection between you and the photo. By using filters and effects, you start to portraying yourself rather than showing the reality. Always remember a photo is all about originality and reality.
A photo is all about originality and reality.
