There’s no doubt that Photoshop can be used for both good and bad. And in this day and age, there seems to be more bad than good. Trolling online is just a way of life that won’t end any time soon. But every now and then, someone comes up with a unique idea that changes the game. And Conor Nickerson, a photographer from Montreal, did just that by inserting his current self into old photos from when he was growing up between 1997 and 2005.
Conor wrote, “While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to photoshop myself today into them. I gathered all the old hats and t-shirts that I could find and did my best to put myself into childhood moments which, aside from these photos, remain only a distant memory.”
One of the big challenges that Conor faced was matching the quality (or lack thereof) of the retro pics. “It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo,” he said.
The end results look absolutely real. In fact, if you didn’t know the story behind these photos, you would have probably assumed you were looking at father and son. “Editing the pictures and looking at them so closely for so long takes a bit away from the shock value, but seeing the final images all together definitely is a bit strange! I feel like me and little me would have gotten along pretty alright.”
