The Old Fashioned Photo Shop Job

This is mostly fun, now … but sixty years ago, if I had the same ethical standards I do now, I’d be pretty frightened by this book on how to retouch photos that Michael Zhang has written about at PetaPixel.

I will grant that most of the photos in the book are commercial or corporate images and not what we would consider pure journalism. But still … to “glamorize” an image by adding more smoke from a factory stack seems … well … odd.
