My buddy is a photographer and swung by his studio today which doubles as his home/apartment/loft

he was photographing some oldcel ceo and another dude

one of the guys just kicking it at his place was a signed model

we talked for a bit then he starts talking about his career and instagram and shit

for instagram 98% of his followers are other dudes, who are gay

he has about 120k of them, his dms are funny as shit just gay guys asking him if they can suck his dick

he said thats what a lot of guys who got signed via instagram do, find homo accounts, start following all the followers

60% - 70% of them will follow you back which is triple the normal followback rate

he started getting agencies approaching him when he reached 20k followers

which would take less than 3 weeks with automatic software

some girls message him with emojies and "hey" or "you're so hot" etc

but aside from that he confirmed lens theory

models NEVER use the selfie cam because it looks like shit

he said his agency gave him a sony a5000 to use instead

almost as good as an SLR but has a flip screen for selfies



he basically whips out, syncs it to his cell phone, holds down the camera button

it snaps a bunch of photos in a few seconds

he picks the best one out of all of them

it gets pushed to his cell phone then uploaded to instagram

dont get me wrong hes a good looking dude, but on a phone selfie he's a 6

IRL he's a 7.5

With a good photo on his own cam he's a 8

pro pics make him look like a 9 (no homo) 

he said his best cell phone selfie pictures came from an LG g5 but still weren't as good

he also said his agents said no more than 20% of his pics should be mirror pics with the phones rear camera

and suggested if he does them to stay at least 5 ft away from the mirror

but also confirmed something else, lots of "mirror pics" with the back camera are fake

they use the high end camera as a "mirror", point the phone at it, then tap to snap a pic off the high end camera

found it all interesting, just thought i'd share

lenses won't save incels

but they can save normies from subhuman status
link to where i can purshacese that camrea tbh

Great info. Did he mention anything about lighting, that he avoids or seeks out certain lighting situations?

I had suspected what he said about mirror selfies often being made with a remote high quality camera on a tripod because it is very hard to hold the camera still enough to get a clear photo while "posing".

LOL at people that think instagram models are making big money.

Here is a review of the camera... http://www.trustedreviews.com/sony-alpha-a5000-review
You have to make sure you get a good quality lens with the camera, the lens is probably more important than the camera

he was probably gracile and tall faced(narrow cucked). flanged males with excellent fhwr will never experience lens distortion problems. this thread really just proves being sub 8 is an objectively inferior existence

Fuck that. Lens distortion sucks if you have excellent fhwr. It directly targets one of your best traits and demasculates you.

Isn't this common knowledge...Instagram pics look amazing... Obviously not took with some shitty phone cam.

Lens distortion has always been a thing.

The flip image camera thing is a good point...Like taking a mirror pic without looking like a narcissistic aspie.
