Greeting, fellow DPC'ers

I have a request. For my public speaking class, I plan on presenting a speech concerning the post processing involved in fashion/commercial photography - namely, the techniques photographers use to make their models (often celebrities) "more attractive". I am looking for articles (or other types of information) and visual aids (especially before/after comparisons). I already have the Dove "evolution" film, something on the hoopla about Katie Couric, and some short articles.

Mostly, I need text - things to talk about in my speech. Visual aids are also helpful. Any sort of assistance is greatly appreciated!

A bit risque, but that's about as retouched as they come. Thanks for the link.

You might want to show that Dove video. Can't remember what it's called. Real Beauty or something. You should be able to find it on youtube.

I linked to a Dove video in my original post. Is that the one you're talking about?

Do you want more technical info, such as what tools Photoshop gurus use to do the retouching? Or would you prefer info on the social implications of doing such work?

Where do you want to go with this?

Hey Dunnewold,
There is quite a bit about Kate Winslet on line and how she got airbrushed without her knowledge before being put on the front cover of a magazine. She hated it and went to town on the mag - I think this is a good example because so few people mind getting that extra help and she was so against it.

Social implications is really what I'm looking for now. I've found lots of before/after's so the audience will be able to see what is actually done to the photos. Speaking of, check these out.

Thank you, jblaylockrayner- I'll be sure to look up that stuff on Winslet.

edit: bad link

My dad is an airbrush artist and used to do a lot of manual touching-up back in the day. This kind of thing has been around forever (which may be interesting to talk about as well)

This may be an example of what you are after.

Many Thanks, Joey.
Cam - those rollover shots are indeed what I'm after.
Everyone - thanks for the help - I think that'll do it.

WOW...those photos or rather..."faux-tos" are intense! I certainly feel better about myself now. :oP

Dunnewold, having worked with children of all ages, I can attest firsthand to how damaging the media can be to girls in particular...especially adolescents. I spent a good deal of time developing activities to help raise their self-esteem and their sense of self beauty.

I will soon be getting married and my fiance has a ten yer old daughter. It makes my heart ache every time I see her poke her tummy and say "THIS is not natural" I will certainly be sharing these links and videos with her.

AND THERE is the social implications in a nutshell.

For more ideas on the social implications you may want to explore the medias role in eating disorders. Many resources out there for you to tap into.
