What can someone do with a set of great Photoshop skills? Yes, they can create beautiful digital art and edit amazing photos. But can they travel back in time? In this case, it seems like they can!
Conor Nickerson, a Montreal-based photographer, used Photoshop to travel back in time to hang out with his younger self. Although it is not scientific, Conor photoshopped his present self into his childhood photos from 1997-2005, and as you can see, he’s quite successful in doing so.
While looking at some old photos, Conor imagined what it would be like to be in them with his present self. He wasted no more time, grabbed his old hats and tees, and went for it. But going back in time is challenging, whether in a scientific way or photoshop.
“It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo,” says Conor about the challenge he faced during the project. So why are we wasting our time? Let’s check out the amazing project.
