Billy Crudup

Digital Retouch


A small magazine had a block of time with 'Almost Famous' actor, Billy Crudup. After the photographer and publicaction decided on their frames, I was appointed to generate post imagery for the editorial.


Today's software has effected the level of trust viewers had in the aphorism, the camera never lies. Others consider retouching a skillful measure in photography instead of frowning upon the unethical practices used for deception. In this case, I doubt anyone would be offended by Mr Crudup's slight wardrobe change.


The publication went forward with two frames, printing them with an interview. Photo manipulation is often much more explicit than the subtle alterations used here. The final compositions have great resemblance to the originals, masking the slightest of imperfections.
