Striking headshot portraits that offer the same styles as famous photographers could one day be created from the sort of snaps you can take with your phone, with one computer vision research team cooking up a dynamic retouching system. The handiwork of a group led by computational photography researcher YiChang Shih, the system - dubbed "Style Transfer for Headshot Portraits" - takes a regular source picture and another showing the an example of the sort of style you're trying to achieve, blending the two automatically, and even doing the same for video.
