The film just stands out for me. I cannot explain why- some primitive directive I guess.

It's not right is it? Folk posting shots of themselves over and over again whilst pulling faces.
One day they will see the world and weep.

keepreal: A lot of fuss about nothing.

If you do not know how to use Photoshop, Lightroom or whatever properly, you should not be doing this. If you do, then what is the point of this video?

I guess that some are born with the knowledge. The rest of us have to learn.

Great to see progress- I just like handling a DSLR. I find it far more satisfying than using a phone.

Some of the responses are indicative of the 'me first' crap that pervades. We are animals and no more important than any other animal. We need to get over our self importance otherwise we have had it.
Great photo.

Aaron801: I get that the fashion industry tends to promote an unrealistic kind of look for women and that it's easy to argue that this promotes some really unfortunate attitudes about women's bodies, self image, etc. Still, it seems to me that, like it or not, fashion is all about the fantasy of some kind of perfect, often unobtainable able image. With this in mind it seems like of silly to place this kind of limitation of images that are made for the purpose of fashion; the whole idea of it is a kind of lie.

With documentary images rules about post processing make total sense, but in this case, not so much...

This really isn't the forum for this debate. Far too little insight from some folk.

A world of difference between your Big Mac looking different and mental health issues associated with purveying the 'perfect' image.

I sort of agree. But many impressionable folk are exposed to these lies and it doesn't always end well.......

Great camera. When did the camera used replace the photographer?

Or use a massive superzoom and crop twenty shots out of one scene taking advantage of you many megapixels.

Great stuff. I'm a die hard DSLR user but I love what folk can take with these devices (blimey, I sound old, Oh, I am....!)
