Via Jeremy Witteveen, a video quite apropos to an earlier discussion we had on the unfair and unattainable female body image built and propagated by the media.

    I have a love/hate relationship with Photoshop. I love it as a tool for creative expression (I use it for web and e-book graphics). On the flip side, I loathe how it’s used to manipulate and distort people’s expectations.

    When my daughter was a younger teen, she and her best friend were stunned when I showed them these two pages from a freelancer’s portfolio:

    http://homepage.mac.com/gapodaca/digital/bikini/index.html
    http://homepage.mac.com/gapodaca/digital/blonde/blonde1.html

    I’ve shown these to some of her other friends as well, and have gotten the same “WTF!?” reaction. A picture truly is worth a thousand words.

    It’s not just a problem for young women, either. As noted in this excerpt from “Bigger, Stronger, Faster,” men are targeted too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQZpVeWsfK4
