Instagram photographer receives critique after admitting to photoshopping in clouds

Tupi Saravia has been criticised following recent images on Instagram after they all shared similar cloud patterns, with people pointing out the fact they must have been photoshopped.

Her photos, she explained to BuzzFeed News, were edited "to help the composition of the photograph when the sky is burned or overexposed," though explained that her audience was always aware of this, as the creator has always been transparent with her following.

"They were always aware about this because I never hide it," she said, informing that the app used to repeat the cloud formation was Quickshot, a photo editing application, with the in-app feature Sky Control used to micro edit the background sky.

"Actually I'm the first one to tell the joke [that] the clouds are following me around the world."

Fake it till you make it

Despite this, her photos, and her approach to the platform, has been met with criticism.

"I really don't see the big deal [here], I never lied about it. I haven’t done anything wrong, and it was never my intention," said Saravia in response to critics.

Recently an Instagram creator was accused of fabricating a roadside accident as a paid-for sponsorship.

Though when asked, Tiffany Mitchell, stated: “nothing about this was staged. I’m sad that some people are taking it that way, but it’s just not the case.”
