Fake: Pot-smoker

This is a photo of my very good friend Mikael I shot the other day. It’s a good example of how easy it is to fake something in a photo. I happened to snap him while he was talking, almost blinking and waving his hand around, and got a photo of him looking numb and kinda stoned. Some photoshopping later I had put a smoking joint in his hand, and the illusion was complete. I don’t consider myself much of an expert at Photoshop, but it was a cinch to make and it looks convincing enough to already have fooled a few of my friends.
