No wonder our perception of beauty is distorted
You've seen this sort of retouching magic before, but this video makes me wonder why they start with a human model at all if the spread doesn't call for a celebrity/famous face.
Wow. That's pretty amazing. I've seen the before and after pictures before but watching the whole process before your eyes really sinks it in.
Years ago, I worked at a fashion magazine. I was amazed to see how much retouching was done to photographs; in one instance, we took INCHES off a celebrity's thighs. I kept wondering what would happen to our "perception of beauty" if we'd just left hers -- and everyone else's -- thighs alone.
Cool! I want someone to do that to me. I want to walk in with blemishes and bad hair and have somebody make it go away, and get paid for it.
I agree with Jason. Why even bother paying for "talent" in this instance?
I was mezmerized by the photoshop. I know what it's capable of, but I'd never seen it in action like that before.
