Mobile photos - not

I came across this togs photos, and most are posted in mobile/instagram category.

The problem is they didn't look like photos taken by the phone so I searched on other sites, and found him on 500 px.

Well, surprize, surprize, some photos are same here and there... here on EXIF data said all are taken with HTC while on 500px in EXIF data stands Canon PowerShot SX220 HS.

I'm not stating that all photos are not taken with mobile, but this raises a question to all photos...

Here they are...

He has in the meantime uploaded couple of photos... and now I'm sure he is not using mobile...

Look at those 2 photos (same photos).. look at Exif date the later photo and when it is suposed to be taken....

Notice the first photo was uploaded May 29, 2012.. the second one (exact duplicate of first /not considering contrast change/) in Esif states that it was taken May 9, 2013. How can he upload a photo that is going to be taken more then a year after he has uploaded?

And more, from the second photo it is clearly visible that sky is one photo and stone with holes (probably also artificially cut out) and ground is another photo.

And this pair... same shooting.. repetative photos, one is suposed to be mobile and one Canon (the same he stated is used on 500px photos).. with clearly bacground gradient change...

The first two were duplicates and the newer one has been removed, the second pair was not too similar ... I understand why you reported it though. Thank you for the report, still waiting for clarification on the other problems with this account

The last two (swordfight) were supposed to have been taken a week apart with different cameras, but she didn't change her clothes or her hair at all. (even though the pose is slightly different.

Strange.
How do you change exif data like that?

Could the rock photo be a museum display with a cloud backdrop that never changes? Maybe he did take them both at different times- but the subject always looks the same?

I haven't checked out 500px for the data there though.
