I often marvel at the wonderful photographs I can see on the internet. Everyday it seems there's a new image that really hits home, be it a pitiful and touching portrait, a dramatic landscape or a well captured photo of a favorite object. But I seldom, if at all, stop to think about how the photographers actually created these images.
You see, the truth is often unglamorous, ugly and downright dishonest, but sometimes its just amusing to see what funny things the models and objects used to create these timeless images are really like, and at other times you just have to applaud the photographer's ingenuity. Baba-Mail brings you the photographic truth that the photographers never wanted you to see!
