Dove Evolution

This is a good compliment to the Doll Face video that I posted a few days ago. The images that we see in the media can be very misleading, so don’t automatically believe everything you see. Photographers and Photoshop wizards can work some serious magic on images of all kinds, from simple retouching to drastic alterations. Photographs of models and Playboy centerfolds are not exceptions to image manipulation. Indeed, this tweaking is merely the final step of a an elaborate process that makes a lot of people try to attain the impossible… And ultimately feel inadequate when they can’t. Don’t get me wrong, I like beautiful things (and people) as much as the next guy, however, what we see is often artificial beauty, not reality.

  1. Yeah, I saw this a long time ago. Clever marketing, designed to make “real” women feel good about themselves. Love how they turn it around. But you are absolutely right. Everything you see these days is completely manipulated. As a former model I can attest to that. Although I must say, my photos were never manipulated that badly lol

  2. This is an extreme case, and in all fairness to their model, they really made her look like hell at the beginning to amplify the effect. That said, Photoshop is a celebrities best friend.
