It’s a Beautiful Illusion, never believe what you see in a photograph. From the very first days of photography we have found ways to enhance the look of our subjects. Even before the digital age, film photographers used techniques, like slight over exposure of skin tones and careful lighting to make their model even lovelier than they were. Touch up artist painstakingly enhanced the print and now digital. Never judge yourself by the pictures you see before you, they are an illusion.
