Scrolling through social media can make you think that everyone is a photographer nowadays. Perfectly composed and lit images have become the norm, and it doesn't matter if someone is flexing their new car or showing off their tight summer body -- it looks as if they hired a professional team to photograph it. But this Mexican photographer who goes by the name Omahi is on a mission to prove to us that appearances can be misleading. Especially online.

Bored Panda already wrote about Omahi revealing the behind-the-scenes of glamorous photos, but the guy has continued his awesome work so we just had to cover his most recent pics, too. From turning a bland room into a prison cell to transforming an inflatable mini pool into a surreal pond, here's how far can creativity take your photography.

You can follow Omahi on Instagram and Facebook

Omahi said that when he began revealing the ins-and-outs of creative photography, many who were into it tried to keep what they have learned to themselves. "I am one of those artists who made showing the 'behind-the-scenes' viral," he told Bored Panda. "Today, many do it but I was one of the first ones when it was still kind of taboo."

"I have always been interested in art but 4 years ago, I felt the need to express what I feel through photography as well, so I started sharing the results on social media," Omahi said, adding that he considers his style creative and/or artistic. "I always try to surprise my followers with something new, showing that anyone can make art anywhere."

This was pretty cool. Looks like a movie cover from the 90's.

Omahi explained that he developed as an artist due to the desire of standing out. "I wanted to do something different that no one else did, and I started taking [more and more] complex photos with very interesting cameras, which caused me to go viral on platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter. Then, everything snowballed into a new trend and now a lot of photographers show the 'behind-the-scenes' too."
