People say photographs don't lie. Mine do. -David LaChapelle

Digital manipulation in pretty girl photography--well, photography in general--is probably at an all-time high. After all, it's become rather easy for just about anyone and everyone to learn how to manipulate an image with photo processing tools.

The trick, of course, is to digitally process and enhance an image in ways that appear as if little or no manipulation has taken place. I like to call this, invisible distortion. The degree in which invisible distortion is successfully applied is heavily linked to your viewers' ability to suspend disbelief when it comes to the perceived beauty and allure of your model.

Great article. I was never good at acronyms, so what is NSFW? I do like the Skin book, however, which I got when it first came out.
Cheers,

Hey Jimmy,
this is a great article that you have up, and so very true. Even back in the days of film, the vast majority of that holds up, instead of using computer software, there were retouchers, etc. Either way, thanks for putting this up.

Isaiah
