That's why I usually say, "dummy."

I usually take the word "fake" to mean that the picture has been altered, post-capture, either by using Photoshop or by creative darkroom technique such as sandwiching negatives where "dummy" means that the picture is of a real scene but the circumstances of that scene were altered.

For example the infamous Cottingley Fairies photographs, taken in 1917, would be "dummies" where the picture of Oprah Winfrey on the August, 1989 cover of TV Guide would be considered "fake."

Okay, it's semantics...
