We all have the power to portray ourselves differently online. To the point where we create another version of ourselves that’s different from who we really are in real life. Aside from being selective of the information that we share, many of us are also guilty of enhancing the way we look in photos. Indeed, applying filters has become a crucial step before hitting the “upload” button. Interestingly, a Kentucky resident named Glenn Embrey has recently gone viral for uploading photos with a variety of filters.
Apparently, Embrey received advice to post pictures with filters so that ladies would find him more attractive. Well, he did exactly just that and uploaded multiple photos of him with a bunch of filters. However, he might have taken the advice too literally, as he snapped photos of him holding actual filters. Yup, you’ve read that right—real-life filters and not just photo enhancement filters.

In fact, his post even went viral, garnering over 48K reactions, 13K comments, and 137K shares to date! Well, this only goes to show that no photo enhancement filter can ever beat a unique sense of humor!
Sure, it has become a common practice to use filters to enhance photos. But taking photos with actual filters? It seems like Embrey is in a league of his own. Well, if it worked for him, then you might want to consider doing it too!
