2.5 // Celebrity Images + Real Life

Do you get overwhelmed by the perfect images online? Let me introduce you to one of my best friends, Justin McIntosh. Reba’s VP of Creative + Marketing, he gives us the inside scoop of what goes into celebrity images. We talk about retouching, the professionals it takes to create an image, and the apps that are available so the average Jane can make her IG look like a celeb feed. He reminds us that there is an actually human behind each photo and that we never know the full story.


Remember to rate + review the show!
