Digital Caricature Photoshop Tutorial

So I have seen quite a bit of caricature portraits and fell in love with them. I decided to try my hand at doing a few and kind of fell into a new little series with them.

The Surreal Conceptual Photography Of 19 Year Old Taylor Marie McCormick

At just 19 years of age, photographer Taylor Marie McCormic is one to watch. With her dream-like style, her work is quite intriguing. She has a really great way of telling a story in a single frame.

I have watched his Imagination series grow and grow over the last month or two, and his post processing really is quite unique. Richard is a 30 year old graphic and motion graphics designer, residing in Orlando FL. I have said it before, and I will say it again, but I believe that shooting personal work is a great way to grow as a photographer. I asked Richard some questions about himself and his series for the readers of Fstoppers.
