Use this simple Photoshop process to match skin tones in uneven areas. This method also works particularly well for matching lighter facial tones to the rest of the body’s color.
Before and after weight loss photos flood the Internet and late night TV infomercials. But how many of these images are truthful? Photographer Ben Cope and Buzzfeed set out to reveal what’s behind the smoke and mirrors.
Photography is an art. Art is subjective. The one most important factor necessary in photography is light—quality light. Without light, there are no photographs. So, if you photograph your subject—whatever your subject may be: person, place, or thing—in quality light, you are likely to create art that people will subjectively view as “beautiful.”

You twist and turn it trying every possible method but the contraption simply refuses to be tamed and bagged. Eventually you do end up as the winner of this impromptu wrestle, but not before becoming a great source of entertainment for the rest of the crew.
