Deception and Manipulation

September 15, 2008

  • Hezbullah flag in background
  • Cigarettes in pocket
  • Contrast and brightness adjusted for maximum “scarieness”
  • Multiple “family portraits” to reinforce “Muslim” stereotype
  • “Vampire” teeth
  • Gay p0rn on computer screen
  • “Muslim garb” image

Pretty outrageous and disgusting, is it not? What if a professional photographer was hired to shoot a cover photo of Senator John McCain for a magazine and intentionally adjusted the lighting to portray the candidate in the worst possible way? Then the same photographer took the images not used, manipulated them, then placed them on a blog to spread across the internet? Pretty vile, underhanded, and unprofessional. But true.

“Greenberg also crowed that she had tricked McCain into standing over a strobe light placed on the floor – turning the septuagenarian’s face into a horror show of shadows.

Asking McCain to ‘please come over here’ for a final shot, Greenberg pretended to be using a standard modeling light.

The resulting photos depict McCain as devilish, with bulging brows and washed-out skin.

‘He had no idea he was being lit from below,” Greenberg said, adding that none of his entourage picked up on the light switch either. ‘I guess they’re not very sophisticated,’ she said.

UPDATE:

Greenberg will not be paid.
