日前 Nikon 的攝影比賽選出了一張明顯的 PS 改圖,成為了網上熱話。最後 Nikon 有風度回應化解了危機,而提交照片的攝影師 Chay Yu Wei 也在 Instagram 發文道歉,指那張照片其實是用手機 app 製作的。

內容大意是,攝影師對於這次的事件感到非常抱歉,他的照片其實是用 PicsArt 把飛機修上去並上傳到 Instagram ,最初他做這張照片只是因為好玩,並不打算用來欺騙大家﹙內文指如果他真想騙人,他就用 PS 認真改圖了﹚。當時朋友都知他這張圖是假的,朋友曾在 Instagram 留言問他「等飛機經過等了多久」,他也是開玩笑式地回答「我很幸運沒有等很久」,不過就被網民 cap 了圖,指他有意欺瞞。而他犯了最大的錯就是把這張開玩笑的改圖拿去比賽。

「我為自己沒尊重 Nikon 的攝影比賽感到很抱歉,也對攝影界和所有攝影師道歉。」

以下是攝影師 Chay Yu Wei 的道歉原文:

Hello everyone, This goes out to everyone who has seen my Chinatown plane post. I’m sorry! This is going to be quite a read so that’s the first thing I would like you to read if you don’t have time to read below; I would like to apologize for the mistake I have done. I’ve been quiet so far because I’ve been trying to contact Nikon and have been waiting for them to contact me back to discuss about this. I understand that what I would say might affect Nikon’s brand hence I decided to wait for their advice. However, since more than 24 hours have passed and I have not managed to have discussions with Nikon, I think I shouldn’t wait and it’s important for me to come out to address this issue. Like one user commented, I was on a photo walk in Chinatown and I chanced upon that set of ladders. I snapped a picture of it, and subsequently felt that a plane at that spot would make for an interesting point of view. Hence, I inserted the plane with PicsArt and uploaded it to Instagram. That’s how I use Instagram, sometime it’s to showcase the work I’m proud of, sometimes just to have fun. This case, that small plane was just for fun and it was not meant to bluff anyone. I would have done it with photoshop if I really meant to lie about it, but no, it was a playful edit using the PicsArt app and uploaded to Instagram. When my friends commented with some questions, I also answered it jokingly, saying it’s the last flight of the day and saying it was my lucky day that I did not wait too long. At that time, of course everyone who read it took it as a joke, before this issue arrived and it is taken seriously. However, I made a mistake by not keeping it to Instagram as a casual social media platform. I crossed the line by submitting the photo for a competition. I meant it as a joke and I’m really sorry to Nikon for disrespecting the competition. It is a mistake and I shouldn’t have done that. I also shouldn’t have jokingly answered Nikon that I caught the plane in mid-air and should have just clarified that the plane was edited in using PicsArt. This is my fault and I sincerely apologise to Nikon, to all Nikon Photographers, and to the photography community as general.

他因為怕亂發言會影響 Nikon 的品牌形像,所以在賽果公佈後就馬上聯絡主辦並一直等待 Nikon 回覆,不過經過 24 小時也沒有回應,所以自行發文。而這篇道歉文出現有也有不同聲音,網民讚賞他勇於坦白、承認錯誤,也有人指他根本是被發現所以才出來道歉﹙不過因為 PS 圖實在太明顯,想不被發現很難吧?﹚ 同時有人發現,這張照片的概念其實早就有攝影師做過﹙也是改圖﹚,攝影師為 Yik Keat Lee  :
