Photographers today have great power. If they don’t like an element of a photo, they can remove it…or add something that wasn’t really there. This type of editing is unethical in photojournalism, but happens all the time in portrait photography and advertising. In this project, students were asked to take a photo, and then remove some distracting elements to make it a better photo. In the slideshow above, the AFTER photo comes first…then the original.
