Re: Product Retouching & False Advertising

I don't get paid for my intense moral compass regarding the realness of images. I always try to keep it as photographic as possible, but if the person paying my bill wants hyper-real, or even completely unlike the actual product? That's what I do.

Re: Product Retouching & False Advertising

This reminds me of a newspaper photo I was asked to take 30 years ago in the office for the publisher. There was a mail campaign and he wanted to "beef up" the stack of letters to make it look as if more were received than actually were. I was not comfortable about his but did as I was told (I was young then), putting something under the pile of letters on the table to "poof" it up.
