The magic of airbrush

  I always knew there was a lot of 'touching up' done to models and other advertizing shots but this is crazy.

Hey Jennemmer, did you by chance find this while looking through lj?

PS. Some of that dude's work was nice. But this transformation is craziness!

  Sweet P, I actually got it from a fitness site a friend of mine suggested I check out. (http://www.stumptuous.com/weights.html <- it's got a great sense of humor)

What scares me is that her ribcage gets edited out. Apparently important bone structure makes people look too fat.

I think for me the surprise was just how drastic it actually is. I was much less surprised by the product shots. I expect them to be made to be overly perfect. I guess I was expecting more reality when it came to people. I don't know why...

  went to a photo shoot once. They can even make you look happy when you look sad. That's advertising for you! For that one day, I got flowless skin without even having to work for it!

But frankly, I prefer ugly photos and beautiful real person instead of the other way around. One sets high expectation and make people disappoint when they met you, the other makes people surprise! haha

But I guess in advertising, people are not going to really meet the real you, so its ok.

For the record, I think the beauty industry in Singapore is obsess with huge boobs and thin figure.
