Real or Unreal?

OK, now this is really a "fake" picture. Not in the sense that the butterfly isn't a real butterfly, but in the sense that I took the picture in a museum not out in the wild. This points out an important aspect of modern photography; very little of what you see in photos is real. I can guarantee that not only have the images themselves been highly altered in Photoshop or a similar program, but the images themselves have been "staged." That is the reality. If you want to see how staging works, you can watch any number of videos on YouTube.com, especially those about home staging by real estate agents.
