Guy Photoshops Himself Into Childhood Pics Of Young Self, And The Results Are Too Real

Posted on Photography 7

How badly would you want to go back to your young days? Well, Montreal-based photographer Conor Nickerson, wanted it badly enough to actually do it. Not with a time machine though, but instead, with a Photoshop and quite a bit of patience.

“While looking through some old family photos, I wondered what it would it look like if tried to photoshop myself today into them,” Conor writes. “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.”

Conor mentioned that the hardest bit was to match the quality of the photos from 1997-2005 to the current ones: “It involved a lot of blurring, sharpening, and noise to try to get it to look like an older photo.” But the results he achieved are so good that you’ll have a hard time finding any signs of Photoshop in them.

“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.”
