Northgate Street: 1972 coming into 2013

by Snootchies

This is my latest 'mash-up': A project involving combining vintage photos with my own to create a unique blend giving a view of past and present.

This concept works really well in Chester as so much has changed. Northgate Street here for example was a busy street. Now its mostly a pedestrian area - still busy but not in the motor vehicle sense!

Interesting picture. Was matching the viewpoint difficult? Surely Location & relative FOV must be pretty similar for this to work so well.

I use the skew/distort/perspective/warp controls in Photoshop a great deal with these pieces on both the vintage and present day portions to 'shoe-horn' them into being aligned perfectly. I try my best to match the vintage shot in camera, but I always need to tweak more in Photoshop.

Super treatment. I love this sort of hardness in street scenes.
