CRITICS may say that social media influencers “don’t have a real job” or are “famous for being famous.”
But one young woman proved that the best influencers are also set designers, photographers, lighting experts, and maybe magicians.
Influencer Kendall Kiper posted pictures from her glamorous-looking beach and poolside photoshoots that took her followers’ breath away.
Then, she took to TikTok to show off the reality behind the shots.
“This picture’s funny because it’s like ‘Oh, I bet she’s having herself a little pool day,'” Kiper said.
Panning out showed that the sunny snap was actually captured in a backyard kiddie pool.
From the pro-level picture, it was impossible to tell that Kiper was not in a fancy resort’s private grotto, but an inflatable wading pool in the yard.
“This was such a good idea,” a satisfied Kiper cheered. “Come on, absolutely genius.”
Commenters were enthusiastic about Kiper’s camera tricks.
“I mean technically you were having yourself a little pool day,” one viewer quipped.
“They hate you, cause they ain’t you babe,” a supportive fan added. “Art doesn’t have a box or lines to color inside of.”
In a different clip, Kiper shared pictures from a natural, breezy day at the beach.
But true to form, she revealed that the actual setting was nowhere near as fabulous as it seemed.
“She’s at the beach, that’s so cute. Incorrect!” Kiper exclaimed.
In fact, her towel was resting on a narrow patch of sand scattered in her grassy backyard.
“Home Dept has bags of sand for $4,” Kiper explained. “Once I found that out, things went downhill.”
The influencer went on to explain that she was always willing to get creative in order to progress her career.
Because she makes her income through brand deals and sponsorships, Kiper has to find ways around any restraints on her resources and locations.
“I live in the country,” Kiper said simply. “A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.”
