Proof that you don't have to be anorexic to model...

If a camera adds twenty pounds then Photoshop can remove forty. It is amazing what it can do. Too bad they missed the shadow on the right side of her hip.

This summer while I was in school, one of our favorite websites to look through was Photoshop Disasters. For a photographer this site is kind of invaluable. It teaches photoshop users what not to do by showing you all the ways that everyone else has screwed it up. This blog reminds me that looking at all the details in an image is essential. The details are where professionalism lies.

Now I don't quite understand how all of these images still got published. I mean some of these images are the cover of huge products and publications. These images had to be looked at by minimum of twenty people but nobody caught the errors....

Who would have thought that I would have posted more blogs while I was at school than when I arrived home?? I know I wouldn't have. I thought today was kind of the perfect day to start back up.

Today is a wonderful day because the elections. I have to say that I am excited to be an American for the first time in a while. It was revitalizing to see all the people turn out to support their candidates. Not to mention that for the first time ever we have an African American president. I'd also like to compliment McCain on his concession speech it was truly into the man's great character that he could take a defeat and speak with such a positive message.

I'm taking the feeling that I have today and going to cherish it. I hope that you all do to.
