The following are all people I’ve admired from afar. This collection is a taster of some of the fabo photo retouching and manipulation work they do, something I’m really interested in and do a bit of work in myself. So these guys are quite inspirational. You’ll find no swirls or swooshes in this lot, they are all very different, interesting to look at and try to figure out how it’s done.

    I believe it’s both… When a designer can retouch a photo into such an incredible manipulation… It’s certainly ART!

    Christophe Huet’s is also my favorite..

    Hi guys! Thanks for the comments.

    Yes Christophe Huet is exceptional, isn’t he? When I grow up I want to retouch like him! I love Derek Bacon’s work too. And Taylor James. And Glenn Honiball is renowned in the industry for his work. They’re all brill really.

    I think it was a ‘manipulation’ not retouch, retouch is by fixing the photos or make it beautiful but off course the photo must still be the same and not to create a huge difference.

    You are right Keruchan, some of it is definitely manipulation and I’m going to change the name of the post! Thanks for your comments.
