People don't realize when they see pictures the extent of which they are edited to, people prefer photo editing in replacement of eating healthy and excercising because they don't have the time too. Just by fixing sun spots you can make it appear as though 10 years are taken off of you and by softening pixels you can lose 15 lbs just at the click of a button.

Warning Label: I don't think photoshopped images need a warning label. Photoshopping may have the power to make people want to look a certain way but it isn't dangerous.

Curtis Building

I took pictures of the Curtis Building on campus from different angles.  I took two different side view shots one going into the sun one with the sun behind me and it changed the lighting in the pictures.  I also took two different shots from underneath the building.  I also took one picture of the building head on.

Compressed Photos

These photos are licensed to morgueFile.  I downloaded the images and then resized them to 1024x768 because it will allow the pictures to fit better on a screen and have the proper pixels to be viewed and supported by programs.
