Magazine Surgery Series Pokes Fun at Retouching
In a recent new creative series, Metra Bruno and Laurence Jeanson take on the struggles of finding retouchers and makeup artist for their shoots by simply reusing previous peoples work and scotch tape. With ideas this creative, we can expect to see makeup artists and high end retouchers, such as our resident Pratik Naik in the unemployment line any day now.
Often, we read articles that expose the threats to the photographers career. 4K video cameras, CGI, and everything else is working hard to take over our occupation. So imagine my relief, as a photographer, to see a couple of photographers finally fighting back. Model got a lazy eye? No problem…a quick roll of tape and this ad from Vogue will fix that. Gapped tooth? Thank god for this Colgate ad I found. Content aware fill no doing a good job fixing those blemishes? Well, good thing I cut out this cheek from a L’Oréal ad. Photographers rejoice, with this new technique, those last minute Make Up Artist cancellations and retouching fees are now a thing of the past!
In all seriousness, this is a creative series, while poking fun at our ridiculous standard of beauty.
