On the news last night

I was watching the news last night and the story was all about this photographer who was taking profile pictures of all the kids in a school class Not interesting in itself but the photographer decided to line up all the kids in order of skin colour s

Initially I was shocked and I thought “that’s not right” but his reasoning was that he didn’t have to change the exposure each time as different skin colours require different levels to get the best results.

I’m no photography expert but this to me sounds like a reasonable excuse and the fact is that these kids did have a wide range of skin colours so was there really a need to turn this into a race issue?
