Exceptional Photo Manipulation Photography


Photo Manipulation In Full Effect

The art of Photo manipulation is the process of image editing techniques applied to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception

(in contrast to mere enhancement or correction), through analog or digital means.

It’s uses, cultural impact, and ethical concerns have made it a subject of interest beyond the technical process and skills involved. Photo manipulation can be regarded as old as photography itself; contrary to the idea of a photo having inherent verisimilitude.Photo manipulation has been regularly used to deceive or persuade viewers, or for improved story-telling and self-expression.

Within the process of digital editing, photographs are usually taken with a digital camera and input directly into a computer. Transparencies, negatives or printed photographs may also be digitized using a scanner, or images may be obtained from stock photography databases. With the advent of computers, graphics tablets, and digital cameras, the term image editing encompasses everything that can be done to a photo, whether in a darkroom or on a computer.

Photo manipulation is often much more explicit than subtle alterations to color balance or contrast and may involve overlaying a head onto a different body or changing a sign’s text, for example. The incorporation of Image editing software can be used to apply effects and warp an image until the desired result is achieved. The resulting image may have little or no resemblance to the photo (or photos in the case of compositing) from which it originated. Today, photo manipulation is widely accepted as an art-form.

Before the emergence of computers, photo manipulation was achieved by retouching with ink, paint, double-exposure, piecing photos or negatives together in the darkroom, or scratching Polaroids.The earliest recorded case of photo manipulation was in the early 1860s, when a photo of Abraham Lincoln was altered using the body from a portrait of John C. Calhoun and the head of Lincoln from a famous seated portrait by Mathew Brady – the same portrait which was the basis for the original Lincoln Five-dollar bill.

With the explosion of the ’80s , we saw the advent of digital retouching with Quantel computers running Paintbox, and Scitex imaging workstations being used professionally. Silicon Graphics computers running Barco Creator became available in the late 1980s which, alongside other contemporary packages, were effectively replaced in the market by Adobe Photoshop running on the Apple Macintosh.

Below are some of the best photo manipulations recently discovered along the web, we hope you will like them as well. As you can clearly assess : the Digital Age is in Full Effect !.
