Men Get Photoshopped By The Standards Women Do In Media
The Try Guys on YouTube took part in this video where they were Photoshopped into the standards women are retouched in the media. But they took it a step further, they analyzed the most outrageously over-retouched photos and reproduced some of those images.
They went from the concept, to the shoot, and watched the before/after of the retouching. The best part was definitely the commentary!
It's almost meant to laugh at society from the top down and ask guys how they would feel if they were overly retouched and an insight into the industry.
If you're in the field, you usually know when things are overdone. From the perspective of the public, it seems a lot of people do not know exactly what that means. They also do know how much goes into each shoot. The reaction from the guys are absolutely hilarious!
These quotes really give away how they felt:
"I can't be all of these things at once!"
"I feel terrible!"
"I felt so beaten down, and there were expectations of me I couldn't meet."
"Everything you think is real, is constructed."
"...it's just an object lit beautifully, and hopefully it will be Photoshopped to look better."
"No one has her ass."
