   StormCnter  Ok, another Cher photo. This one is from the Mama Mia page.

   MeiDei  In the old days this would be called a "retouched" photo - meaning one that has been altered to remove imperfections. Photographers who could make their subjects look better than life could earn a nice living. Sometimes photos were taken through a cloth filter (attached to the lens ) which softened the look of the whole picture.

   Tulsa  Both lips look full and nice in this one. More so than the first pic. Not the same as the first pic at all, imo.

In the first pic, the makeup was caked. Pores were huge. And under her eyes were very crepe-y

I have no idea if the first pic was rilly Cher or not. Age makes a big difference, as you know.

   StormCnter  Her lower lip is not fully lipsticked. Drives me nuts.

   StormCnter  Speaking of cloth filters, as Mei was, we used to see older female actresses filmed through gauze or a lubricant on the camera lens. In Doris Day's later movies, her closeups were blurry because of the lens alteration.

   Richdet  Same thing happened on DD's tv sitcom. I recall dropping by a friend's house (this had to be late 60s, early 70s ), and his mother had the "Doris Day Show" on tv. I said I think there's something wrong with your set. She said no, it's just this show, they shoot Doris Day through gauze. Whatever the cause, it gave DD's close-ups an unearthly effect.
