Adobe Photoshop is an indispensable creative tool. But the digital manipulation software, when in the wrong hands, can be used for pure evil — such as for blackmailing purposes, or to make a celebrity or model look like they’re completely made from plastic.
So, it’s good to see someone bypass Photoshop completely — instead using good old-fashioned photo technique and creativity. Take this photo of M&Ms by Patrick on Flickr. It would be easy to pass the image off as an abuse of the rubber stamp tool and various filters. However, it’s nothing more than a bowl of candies under a glass covered in water droplets.
