Foto fixing fotog fired

A RECENT POLL here drew a number of comments about what’s acceptable practice when retouching photos. We later reported on the surprising results…and further comments.

Now comes this story of a Sacramento Bee photographer being fired after manipulating multiple photos.

Seems to me there’s some room for manipulation in feature or posed shots, but not spot news photos. And, yes, I understand and appreciate the arguments about the “slippery slope.”

I think I, too, would have fired the guy.

What do you think?
