January Jones‘ racy GQ cover has raised some hackles—among other things—from those who know just how much photo manipulation goes on in the magazine world. In a move to curb the disbelief, GQ posted an interview with their own director of photography, Dora Somosi, who swears “they’re real, and they’re spectacular.”
[photographer] Terry [Richardson] likes to work with harder lighting, and that can create a stronger shadow—that, and body position and perspective could give the illusion that her breasts are bigger…Richardson prides himself on unretouched pictures, and we only hire photographers who operate that way. We like a natural look—there’s very minimal retouching.
We’ll take a pimple out or soften under eye dark circles. Or maybe there’s a wrinkle in the shirt, or even dust on the lens. January Jones needed no help. Trust me.
If we must, Dora. But does this mean Jennifer Aniston‘s nude cover was devoid of major manipulation too? No wonder John Mayer can’t stay away.
