Keisuke Jinushi, a 28-year-old freelance photographer from Japan, uploaded a couple of super cute photos of him and his girlfriend to his Instagram and his blog, making you “awww” and sigh through the series of lovey-dovey images. That is, until you look behind the scenes of his photo creations and realize that Jinushi is simply manipulating angles and distorting reality.
His photo series is essentially an annoyed plea to lovey-dovey couples that flooded his news feed with images he didn’t necessarily need (or want) to see.
So, he decided to get a girlfriend…or, erm, make a girlfriend.
Believe it or not, he staged all of the photos and the lucky lady in his photos turned out to be his hand! It’s actually quite impressive and, in all honesty, quite hilarious. Check out how he faked having a girlfriend through the world of Instagram (which really makes you think of how much is faked and exaggerated online).
Remember, everything you see isn’t necessarily the reality, including happiness.
Romance is feeding each other…
Or you could just dress your hand up and feed yourself.
His commutes were a lot less lonely…
His grandma actually cried when she saw his submissions. She thought he was being way too pathetic.
But Keisuke still does it. Even after taking multiple photos, he’s still slightly embarrassed whenever he pulls his tripod out on what is supposed to be a romantic date.
He cannot stress enough how important it is not to be ashamed if you’re not in a relationship.
And he’s right. You’ll miss being single when you’re taken, so appreciate what you’ve got when you’ve got it.
