Photoshop played a little prank on some unsuspecting folks at a bus stop in Stockholm, Sweden. This was part of Adobe's strategy to promote Adobe Creative Days which is coming up on June 11th. Each person was photographed and then Photoshop artist Erik Johansson quickly retouches the image while the people watch. Not only is this an interesting way for Adobe to market Photoshop and the Adobe Creative Days, but it is also a unique take on street photography. Although it is all done in fun and jest I can see how some folks might feel a little uncomfortable having their photo taken secretly. I personally think it is well done and shows off some of the easy fun things you can do with Photoshop.
Check out the reactions of some of the people as they see their photos being manipulated right before their eyes. Check out the video dubbed 'Street Retouch'.
