Photoshop for Babies
Who the hell dyed this child's hair?!
Okay really though, let's break it down. I need to show you another photo. This is a promo shot of my band taken a few years ago by Blioux:
In this photo we all appear to be trapped in an invisible "box" together. Here is the reality of this photo:
- Only 2 of the 3 of us were in the photo at the same time, Colin (on the ground) and Peter (in the middle). I did my portion of the photo alone and was photoshopped in later.
- We were not in a white room at all. We were in Blioux's home studio which has hardwood floors and cream colored walls. We were crouching on some black studio floording under a sawhorse with a wooden door on top of it to act as the top of the "box".
- In front of Peter was a piece of not so perfectly clean plexiglass that he pressed his hand against to create that trapped effect you can see.
So really, that picture is a study in the power of Photoshop and, in some ways, is a complete lie. What you see is not really what happened at all. So as far as I'm concerned every single thing about Baby Suri Cruise Holmes Whatever-Her-Real-Last-Name-May-Be is nothing but smoke and mirrors. And somehow they got Annie Leibovitz to put her name to it all. Frightening.
P.S. Holy fucking hilarious.
