Maybe it’s me, but I doubt it. (Wow two blog posts in two days!!!) I was on target dot com this morning checking on the status of an order and ran into a picture of women in bathing suits on the home page. My first thought was something along the lines of Oh Look! Bathing suits ALREADY. My second thought went something like this: Wow. That MUST be photoshopped. It’s kind of….unnatural.
I took a screenshot of the image in question and highlighted the area in question. In my opinion that has to be photoshopped because no one looks like that. Notice how her figure is almost a vertical straight line? Everyone has curves, especially there. Her ribs under her breast line even look funny. Basically from the underside of her arm the whole way past her hip looks ‘off’.
This is a prime example of how touched up photographs/images/pictures are everywhere and we might not even notice – unless we stop and think about how human anatomy works. This is difficult to do when we are inundated with such images so often, so many times a day.
