I’m not bashing anyones trade here and I respect the skills photoshop retouchers have but really? when did it become know as photography to not compose a shot on camera and create cool lighting on set? to build a masterpiece from pieces of mediocre photography? EVERYTHING nowadays is photoshop…take the recent cover of Vouge with Gwyneth Paltrow for example…its seems as if they tried to make her and the entire set look as fake as possible! My god you guys, she’s gorgeous without that much airbrushing.
As a photographer I wouldn’t want my name on a “Photo” that is 99.9 percent photoshoped imagery. But wether you agree with me or not, check out Christopher Huet’s photoshop skills. Its kind of disturbing when you watch the process.
