Old to Young Case Study in Photoshop by Cassio Braga

Old to Young Case Study in Photoshop by Cassio Braga
Reading the comments about the Photoshop Battle and I noticed the a lot of people were interested in knowing and seeing the images that were created during the event. Because of that I decided to recreate one of the images I did in my first battle, which was my favorite. This time however I had more time to pay attention to some details, in the event we had only 30 minutes to come up with an idea and make it come true. So as I mentioned before this image, I will present in this case study, was created in my first duel and the subject was water. I really like the result because besides the visual strength it has a simple idea that makes us wonder and think about life and aging.

My Project: A Father Uses Photography To Communicate With His Autistic Son When the San Francisco-based photographer Timothy Archibald began photographing son Elijah at age 5, his intentions didn’t extend beyond documentation. Elijah was socially withdrawn, fixated on things like mechanical objects and a ritual need for repetition. One day, Archibald snapped a few pictures to bring to behavioral specialists—Elijah was later diagnosed with autism. But that first shoot would turn into a unique three-year collaboration between father and son. The series began with capturing habits that had driven Archibald crazy. Once he began shooting these moments, their roles shifted. Elijah, receiving positive rather than negative attention for his rituals, could share something special with his dad and has started taking his own photos. Most of all, though, Echolilia is a document of a father and son creating their own visual language. Archibald’s photos have appeared in Time, Forbes, and Smithsonian.

Flights in Dreams and in Reality by Jan von Holleben Born in 1977 in Cologne and brought up in the southern German countryside, Jan von Holleben lived most of his youth in an alternative commune and identifies a strong connection between the development of his photographic work and the influence of his parents, a cinematographer and child therapist. At the age of 13, he followed his father’s photographic career by picking up a camera and experimenting with all sorts of „magical tricks“, developing his photographic imagination and skills with friends and family and later honing his technique in commercial settings. After pursuing studies in teaching children with disabilities at the Pädagogische Hochschule in Freiburg, he moved to London, earned a degree in the Theory and History of Photography at Surrey Institute of Art and Design, and became submerged within the London photographic scene, where he worked as picture editor, art director and photographic director.
