    The Before and After Files #11

    I am fascinated by close up shots, because I’ve noticed that I can almost look like a different person (well, okay. Maybe just a perfect twin sister) after the Photoshop guru has touched up the photo.

    In this shot he gave me absolutely impeccable skin…I don’t think I have a single pore in the “after” image. I also have brighter eyes, not a single beauty mark, and not a single stray hair.

    It’s when I look at photos like this that I understand why people LOVE candid shots of models and celebrities. When you see someone’s image captured on a camera phone you realize that yes, they have pores. They have bad hair days. And they are human, too.

    See the whole picture here!

        • No they don’t have a choice because they’re being paid to do whatever their employer says, and if they say that they don’t want it to be photoshopped, they might loose the job.

    1. I don’t think you really need to be photoshopped, but I would like to point out that this was clearly not a top notch photographer. The lighting was bad, the angle was off, and it just didn’t fit right. That’s a HUGE reason why many magazines use SO MUCH photoshop. Sometimes the picture looks right when you take it, but not after you review and crop it.

    2. Seriously, this is riciculous. You already look beautiful in the first picture…. The second one is just not natural. The media really is terrible, they make you jealous and want to look like something fake and impossible! No one is that perfect!

    3. You’re really beautiful without photoshop! I think that photoshop should be banned, and that they can still use makeup on the models, but not make them look like racoons or Lady Gaga.
      I think we should be alright with everyone’s image for who they are.

    4. I love that you are willing to show these! It reminded me of a video we watched at youth group one time of a girl who was already pretty but apparently wasn’t pretty enough to model for them? Here’s the link if you would like to see it! http://youtu.be/s2gD80jv5ZQ
      I think it really did some good for the girls in my youth group! Thanks for doing what you’re doing Nicole! Praying you have the strength to keep it going! 🙂

    5. i didnt realy know how else to adress this to you but i think you guys should do an article on sisters and the importance of relationships with your blood sisters and how to keep that relationship helthy so many girls my age(me included) fight with our sisters way to much and itdamages the relationship and part of being a christan is being able to have good relationships ad to know when enough fighting is enough and to just agree to disagree!!!!

    6. You are beautiful in both. I used to feel bad about myself because I couldn’t look like them. Then I realized that the real beauty was the computers. But not in your case!
