Here is just one photo from the latest event, taken from the comments in the post below. Stop and have a gander, and then ask …
- Why is no one tending to these victims? How long will they just lay there?
- How much time did the photographer spend on this photo? He got the angle right, and the lighting is superb. His camera, obviously a very good one, was f-stopped in such a way that objects in foreground and background are blurred, and only the victims are in focus.
- Did the photographer check for signs of life? Did he then say “OK, they’re dead. I’m going for the Pulitzer!”
- Noted by a commenter in the post below, why all the debris? Did everyone drop everything and run?
- Where are our heroes? Is anyone going to tend to these victims? Are we a nation of run away cowards? If the photographer has time to mentally frame the image and get his settings right without getting shot at, danger has passed. Yet two women just lie there. Medical people always check for life, never assume anyone is dead, and are not allowed to pronouce people dead on the scene.
- The main victim, the well-lit one, appears to have been shot in the thigh, or perhaps gut shot with blood running down to her thighs. Blood has collected between her legs, and it appears to have run both up and down. This could not have happened before she fell, nor after.
- Such a wound would not be immediately fatal, so she must have have bled out. If so, there must be hidden in the shadows a huge pool of blood. Good thing the photographer spared us such gore.
- The guy in the background … what is he up to? Looking for his keys?
- The light source for the bodies is NOT the lit opening in the background. If is off to the left, and is soft light used to accentuate skin tone in shots for magazine layouts. It is probably a diffused light source, as seen in outdoor photo shoots. This is a professional photo.
Just one photo and five minutes of viewing it, easily seen as fake, fake, fake. My guess: this photo was taken well in advance of the event, as they cannot rely on real time staging to deliver such a dramatic effect as this one.
[The more I look at it, the more I suspect that this is a layered image from Photoshop, the girls and debris in the center overlaid on a set that was photographed in a deliberate blur to act as a backdrop.]
