My brush with web trolls

My brush with web trolls

I posted a photo to my Instagram last week during a shoot I was doing.

Now I know I shouldn’t read comments on websites but I can’t help myself sometimes.

I also got some direct mails on Instagram telling me I didn’t need to Photoshop myself, so I thought I would use this opportunity to set the record straight.

I didn’t Photoshop myself in this picture at all; I used filters, but I don’t even know if it’s possible to Photoshop a picture so small – and I don’t know how to use Photoshop either!

Now don’t get me wrong, when I do a shoot they are always retouched in some way or another, but that’s just the way it is, whether I want it or not – and usually I do want it a little.

People were saying my thigh gap looked odd, but it wasn’t a thigh gap as my feet were a foot-and-a-half apart.

A thigh gap is what you have when your feet are together and I don’t aspire to having one. I work hard at my fitness and it’s not in the hope of achieving a thigh gap.
