Honestly, the more I look at it, the more I think it is photoshopped.

The whole board is crystal clear, yet Brian appears to be a bit blurry. Brian's shirt and face are lit up bright-red, yet the board is mysteriously lacking in any red.

Then I think, why would they take the time to fake a picture of Brian in the studio....then I think over all the things that don't make sense in The Beach Boys world, and then it doesn't seem that far-fetched. But perhaps my eyes are really starting to go. Undecided

IDK. In a world full of photoshopped pictures, it's really hard to tell what is real and fake. So if this is real, no disrespect to Brian/Management, it's just the way it looks I suppose.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

It's not even a good shop...look around his nose and the console...see the white pixels? If not, save the pic and enlarge it, then check again.

Why did they do this?

Yeah, maybe Brian was a little "dark" in the picutre, so they "brightened" him up.

Something is very odd - how can Brian be lit by a red light from the front/below, yet the board is obviously naturally lit from above ?

Exactly. Maybe he wasn't necessarily shopped in, but why add unnatural looking lighting effects?

It does look strange Brian all lit up in red, but that same red is on the walls on his right, as is something at the end of the desk, the monitor behind him is lit up with the same yellow that is in his hair. I've blown it up and both the desk and Brian look pixelated. I suspect it is a picture of Brian in the studio ;-)

I have no doubts that it's a real photo and Brian was really there. 
It's just that they did separate different post-processing (lighting, exposure, levels, etc) to Brian and to the rest of the photo.  Hence the odd final look.
It's usually hardly a seamless result when you need to select a person against a complex background.

Haven't enlarged it, but the white "pixels" seem to be just part of the board.

Hmmm, gather round me you young-uns and let old Aegir tell you of the strange time Brian Wilson was photo-shopped into a picture of a recording studio. It was in the fall of 2011.............

Brian at Ocean Way yesterday:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150380545642241&set=a.452661542240.241240.34250497240&type=1&theater

(I'd post the photo but I don't know how to)

OK I use photosop quite a lot.

The hands are not 'shopped. Something funny is going on with Brian's face and head but I'm not convinced that it means he was not actually there. It may just be lighting effects or that its been 'shopped to bring out his face. Look at the hair, it's nearly impossible to photoshop hair that well and merge it into an existing image.

So my conclusion, admittedly from the low res pic on Facebook, is that the image has been played with in order to make it look nice but I am 70% sure it's not actually fake. But I am ready to be corrected, because there are some very strange things going on with Brian's nose

yes, yes, yes. but until circumstances say otherwise I will assume my life expectancy and my lifetime are approximately the same amount.

Just a dark picture that's been brightened and then had the blacks pushed back down to maintain contrast, so it's a bit posterized.

Why did they do this?

For artistic sake.  We've been trained to be suspect of things, so when you see something and deduce that it's been photoshopped, you automatically assume that the purpose of the photoshopping was to deceive.  Photoshop can be an artistic tool as well.  Brian was probably in the studio and they could take 1000 pictures of him sitting at the console, but it's actually pretty creative in my opinion for them to photoshop together a picture of him at the console with strange lighting, etc. to make people wonder and think. 

BTW I think it's a beautiful picture.

They got Brian to act like he was directing people in the studio and acting like he was commanding the session just as he would have in '64 for a "making of" thing about a decade ago. Apparently it's been done more than once. So what reason would they have to "create" a picture of Brian at a console? How does that make any sense?

Even if it is ridiculously and totally "fake", I can't see why it would really matter. The staged studio footage, people doubling Brian's leads live and especially on record (especially Jeff doing it), the staged "fun and sun" image they're giving him a good 45 years after it was appropriate - this is the sort of trickery that I find really annoying, but a photoshopped Facebook picture? Meh.

To these eyes, it's just some not good editing of a legit photo of Brian at the console. The claims of him being too dark in the original photo could indeed be what's going on here. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong and I can't say I care much.
