Derek Blanks, a producer of great photography, has been going through challenges with people saying that “this or that” is photo-shopped. He hit us up with some reasoning as well as before and after pictures of Fantasia’s shoot with him in June.
The guy knows his job:
Beauty is often defined and measured by the unnecessarily high standards set forth by today’s society. With this being said, it is only safe for one to assume that the average Celebrity relies heavily on Digital ….
…Photographic Retouching, Photoshop, for the perfect end product/photo…not always true! Take these photos of J Records Recording Artist, Fantasia for example. In most cases, basic photo retouching should subtly enhance a subject in a photo, not create a brand new one, as so demonstrated by Lifestyle and Fashion Photographer Derek Blanks and with the permission of Fantasia. So ask yourself, are these heavily photoshoped photos? You be the judge!
We think the general public gets photo-shopping mixed up with airbrushing. The two are separate. Nevertheless, some people need more photo-shopping and airbrushing than others… We bet Derek will agree with that.
