Ehtics in fashion photography

In the dove commerical, not only did they; do her make up, her hair, but they also changed her face. They made her neck longer and skinner, her eyes wider and bigger, her acne disappear, her chin smaller, her cheeks skinners, and her cheek bones higher and more noticeably.
I do not think this is OK in any case. Dove itself is suppose to be about natural beauty, not about being made beautiful. While I was watching this film, I could not help but think that the woman before really wasn't that pretty, and I began to point out everything that was wrong with her. Is that right? NO, it's not. That idea of beauty has been placed into our head but these stupid ad's. You should feel comfortable how you look without all the makeup.
In a before and after it might be OK. If a person has alot of acne or they are having a really bad break out, its probably OK.

The difference between photojournalism and fashion photography are; that photojournalism should capture the truth, even if its not considered beautiful or even acceptable.

Photojournalism is connected to reality by the truth, and fashion photography is connected by the beauty in people and even the materialistic aspect of it.

Photoshop manipulation-Ethics

A university was trying to show that it was diverse, and they attempted to show that by making a brochure. The brochure had a football stand with alot of white people cheering, and then they digitally placed a black man in the stand behind them, cheering. They definatly did not get the point of them being diverse across, and it was obvious that they had placed him in there.

I think what they did was wrong, but at the same time, I dont see why it would be so bad. They were trying to show that they are diverse, and there isnt anything really wrong with that, they should have found a black student there, and make it more realistic. Instead of pasting a head and saying he was there.

This picture is showing that the soldier was trying to keep them calm, or making sure they were in control, but in the pictures before the soldier was pointing the gun at the man,threatening him. How is that right?

In this picture they are just trying to make look better, how would this show anything about the ethnic? They wanted the two pyramids both the show. I think it captures it more then just one pyramid.

My print!

There isn't really anything in sharp focus. The guy is in focus. I just didn't adjust the focus like I should have.
There isn't good contrast either. The film wasn't printed very well.
The rule of thirds is used but other then that, there isn't too much of rule following. Next time I need to pay more attention to rules.
There isn't any yellowing or print rings.
My negatives, contact sheet, test strip and print are all stored in my folder because I am a good little girl and no what to do.
