reality

Media's distortion of reality.

As a photographer I often use photo editing software but think anyone seeing my photography or magizine covers and advertisements should know a lot can be done to change the original image in post processing.  So much so the resulting image is a "digital painting" . As a painter the artist can use the original image as a starting point to create something else, some thing not representing reality. When looking through those fashion magazines or any " photograph " keep this in mind.
