The extra hand

Posted: April 29, 2011 by Kevin M. Lerner in Uncategorized

Apropos of our discussion of Photoshop today, I ran into this blog post from a Chicago Tribune photographer. There had been a minor uproar when a photograph he published seemed to show President Obama holding his wife’s hand, but with an extra hand lurking ominously below–clearly a sign of bad Photoshopping, right? The photog must have digitally inserted the hand holding to make the Obamas look like a happier couple than they are, and the extra hand is where Michelle’s real hand was…

OR… Maybe there was a simpler, less nefarious answer. Click on the link above to see the original photo and some others from the series that explain where the mysterious extra hand came from.
