Invasion of the Body Snatchers: body sculpting

Invasion of the Body Snatchers: body sculpting

Photographer | Jeannie Theriault


Okay, if you remember that movie (Invasion of the Body Snatchers), you’re way older than I am (remember, I’m only 19); therefore, for the rest of this chapter intro, I’ll refer to you as either “gramps” or “meemaa” (depending on your gender and what kind of mood I’m in). This chapter is a testament to the fact that people’s bodies are simply not perfect, with the possible exception of my own, which I might say is pretty darn fine because of all the healthy food I eat at sundry drive-thru eating establishments that shall remain nameless (Wendy’s). Anyway, your goal (my goal, our common goal, etc.) is to make people look as good in photos as they look in real life. This is a constant challenge because many people eat at McDonald’s. Luckily, there are a ton of tricks employed by professional retouchers (who use terms like digital plastic surgery, botox in a box, digital liposuction, liquid tummy tucks, noselectomies, stomalectomies, and big ol’ nasty feetalectomies) for a person who hasn’t seen a sit-up or a stomach crunch since they tested for the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports (which for me, was just one year ago, when I was a senior). In this chapter, you learn the pros’ secrets for transforming people who basically look like Shrek into people who look like the person who produced Shrek (I don’t really know who that is, but those Hollywood types always look good, what with their personal trainers and all).
