We all imagine our favorite celebrities in a certain way. But what we see is the picture they create for the public, and it’s perfectly normal. But a Shutterstock staff photographer Andrew H. Walker reveals the different sides of their personalities. He created a series of double portraits which show that our favorite celebrities may not be as we imagine them.
Bloomberg are reporting that the American Federal Trade Commission are cracking down on social media advertising. Users now must be very clear about paid product endorsements. Users are actually required to do this already, but few do. Many advertisers also request that the social media users not mention it.
It’s understandable why advertisers wouldn’t want the public to know. They want people to believe that somebody actually likes their product. That they love it enough to tell everybody how awesome it is. They also pay a lot more to those who don’t mention sponsorship. What I don’t see is how the FTC are going to be able to realistically enforce it.
It’s not uncommon for us to come across a story about a celebrity getting upset that their stomach, hips, legs or even arms were unrealistically edited in an image via post-production. What is uncommon is to come across an incident where it’s the subject’s face that received an unrealistic make-over in Photoshop.
