Photoshop Assignment

The above are photoshopped versions of a picture I took of myself. For the second part of the assignment, I read some articles on the harmful effects of looking at photos so retouched, they’re unreal. I see the reasons for retouching pictures to make a person’s skin more even or to erase some flyaway hairs, but I don’t agree with magazines going so far as to reshape a person’s body. It gives readers unreachable expectations for the type of person they want to look like. I thought it was cool that there are celebrities out there who want to put a stop to such extreme photoshopping. There is some reform needed to today’s magazine world.
