The camera never lies

Planet Hilton came into my sights this week- photos of celebrities are altered so they look like ‘normal people’ – poorly dressed, flabby consumers of a fast food and generally well worn. Start with a well known British couple . Cruel…. but a really good illustration of how easily images can be changed to create a negative impression.
An interesting follow up to using these pictures with children would be to create a video showing their school in really bad light.

By the way If anyone knows of someone who can do the reverse.. let me know…
