Captivating new official snaps of Spanish royals Princess Letizia and Prince Felipe - hellomagazine.com

"Ninguno manda más que el otro" :: Ocio y cultura :: Gente :: Periodista Digital
María José Arlandis, a specialist in the study of unconscious body language, says about the photos:
That Letizia is placed to the left of her husband reflects that there is very good union in their marriage, they are balanced, a man does not take a dominant position or the role of a protector. No one speaks louder than the other. It´s quite significant that they do not have the chin up. If it would be sending a message of distance and arrogance.

In general the press hasn't liked too much the photos, everyone is saying that they are too photoshopped

Retouched royal photos create outcry in Spain - Telegraph
Spanish royal photographer accused of manipulating images of Prince Felipe - Times Online
Spain's crown prince Felipe in 'edited' photos row | World news | The Guardian

The new pictures were long overdue. Acutally embarrassing that it took so long. However, the new pictures are clearly heavily photoshopped or digitally altered. Not that SRF were the first to do it but its clearly visible.

I preferred the old pics a million times since there were more natural. Letizia looks like a plastic version of her journalist days. They try to present themselves as business people since the Spanish situation these days does not allow them any pomp or jewellery, therefore no gala posing. The presentation as "Spanish CEO's" is more or less a strategy of survival, this is the way they want to be seen, not a royals who spend a lot of money and could be kicked out (but they in fact are).

First aim is to please the media therefore they are not tired to give an award to almost any journalist in the country or visit a media outlet, newspaper or TV station every other week.

The pictures only fit this stragety but make them look very lifeless and distant. As one article mentions: The pictures give the idea of a virtual monarchy which can’t be taken seriously. How true.

Spanish royal photographer accused of manipulating images of Prince Felipe - Times Online

I don't understand why they needed to be photoshopped. How hard can it be to take 5 photos, even with different outfits. I do like the business-like imaging though - very professional.

Finally, the photographer, bored with that was questioning his work has issued a communiqué.

http://www.adn.es/politica/20100505/...-retratos.html

(...)
In a communiqué, Virgili affirms in addition, " to tackle the polemic created concerning the erroneous information that some means have spread ", that in the portraits of Don Felipe with the uniforms of three Armies " the same head has not been in use for applying it to every image, but each one is an original capture and, therefore, differently to other ".
(...)

In addition the photographer, with humor, invites in his web to look for the differences.

If they were not official photos of the Prince of Asturias, surely the photographer might have denounced to the newspaper.

It's not always the media's fault, these pictures were bound to create polemic because they are so similar. I actually understand why, in order to avoid any difference between the military divisions, but it does look like copy / paste.

Whatever they do, they never get it right. It is beyond me why, if they claim to be close to the people, publish some heavily airbrushed pictures of the kind that usually appears on VOGUE title.

Ok, it's difficult to get a charismatic picture of Felipe because he doesnt have any charisma, he's just a tall guy in a suit with a bossy mother and a bossy wife. He was groomed to walk the line and not be edgy one bit, incredibly boring. What remains are five pictures with the same bland expression. Letizia's face has become plastic anyway, so her picture is more authentic.

What is really disturbing is the cold and distant look especially in the couple picture, as if they were applying for the spanish version of THE APPRENTICE or as Mr Incredible and Elastigirl.

Their image is based on trying to look busy and making an impact for Spain in these difficult times, like politicians. I wonder if Spaniards will buy this strategy in the long run since royals are still royals, with little impact but a billionaire bank account.
