Researchers at MIT and Adobe have come up with some pretty neat ‘style transfer’ software that seems to be able to take any cellphone selfie headshot and apply a signature style to it by providing it with a headshot in the style you would like. Simply feed the software an example image by Martin Schoeller or Platon and off it goes- creating a fairly decent copy of that style. While I’m sure there are some limitations that we might not be seeing in these controlled samples- it’s certainly an impressive concept. I could see something like this as a sort of next-gen Instagram, controlling lighting styles instead of just film looks.
