I apologize if this as already been asked but I was wondering if anyone here can give me advice, tips, or a tutorial on exactly how to create a Kristof Verschueren style photo. I have been extremely interested in these high contrast almost painted like photos for some time now and I just can't get the full concept. I'm close but still so far away and I don't know what I'm missing. Do I need to dodge/burn more? Do I need to play w/ the contrast a bit more? I'm sure some one here can point me into the right direction here seeing how the retouchers here are so amazing! I hope to hear from some one soon!
I attached one of my latest works but for some reasons it's a little less saturated compared to the original.
