Someone I know posted a handful of family photos on Facebook. I am not sure if they were taken by a supposed “professional” as there are no watermarks, but in all the photos, including the large groups and individual families, everyone is color-coordinated and posed in specific ways. But, whoever took these may not be charging money so therefore may not be a fauxtographer. Not only were the photos horrible- shot haphazardly in full-sun, yellow/green color casts, just overall terrible, but upon noticing something weird I looked closer. In all of the photos, her daughter is obviously ‘shopped in! She has shared custody with her ex, and I think the daughter was on a vacation with dad, so that could explain why she wasn’t present for this photo-taking. But she is cut-and-pasted into all of the photos. Different light pattern, different white balance, and a really bad chop job of the layer masking.
