Distorted Perception by BlackCarrionRose Distorted Perception by BlackCarrionRose
She may be skinny, but she doesn't see it that way...




------
Done for my digital photography class, the word was paradox.

Just a piece on eating disorders...and how people percieve themselves

Thanks to ~temabinastock for the textures

Hi, yes I give you permission along with credit of course. This would probably be the perception of one's weight being more than they truly are.

Thanks!

A great concept plus morose colors equals a really good finished product.

You know, for a second I thought that was you not maniped and i was like woah erm something isn`t right compared to all the other photos. And then I thought it was someone else that looked just like you, and I was like how in the world did she find a twin. And then I realized it was a photomanip that i can`t figure out how you did because you did a really really good job on it.

As for the picture and the idea of the picture, I really really really really like it. So many girls see themselves as fat when they are actually tiny and most of it is because of magazines and television. The girls on TV are starving themselves, and the magazines are fakely edited. My Sound and Recording teacher was showing me these websites that showed the original girl and then the edited girl. It was sort of sickening. Kind of like the Dove Evolution commercial video that he showed me that is also on your page.

But this idea is actually really good.
And stop with your friggin awesome editing skills. you are putting me to shame. haha. jk. <3

Hehe glad you like my manipulatoin, and that you knew, in fact, it was a manip, haha.

Yea it really is sad how that's happening. After using photoshop for so long, I can actually look at a picture and tell if it's been photoshopped. It's amazing how much of it is edited...literally almost all now a days.

LoL. Well next semseter we'll be living together and I'll teach you what I know if you like :D
