Before and after shots on TV shows take advantage of sly studio skills
LETTER — Posted Feb. 7, 2005
Regarding "TV makeovers more extreme than real," (Article, Dec. 27): I guess I'm more like Andy Rooney: "Gee, don't you see something wrong here?"
Why haven't we seen these "makeovers" in the same lighting, makeup, hairdos and clothes before as well as after?
I feel the producers are presenting an erroneous picture. Of course, there are dramatic changes -- but look how they are presented before and after. I would not allow a TV camera to see me in this manner of dress, etc. Thank goodness my patients don't.
