The Photography Of 16 Year Old Yash Naik

As I began on my path as a creative in the world of photography, it started fairly late. I bought my first camera in college and it all started from there.

However, my younger brother, Yash, seems to have taken to photography at a younger age. With now a couple of years under his belt already, I’ve seen his eye develop a unique style that I feel is strong. He’s just 16 years of age with a bright future ahead of him. Shooting a mix of film and digital, here are some of my favorite pieces of his that I wanted to showcase. With no formal training, he has picked up the fundamentals of exposure and composition well. I am excited to see where the future leads.

The article reflects a very current and poignant issue about unemployment of young recent-graduates, with a lot of debts/student loans, struggling in big city like New York trying to find jobs, fulfilling their social obligations and following their dreams…

Incredible Photo Composite: “Invasion Of The Body Snatchers”

Jacek Nawrot recently posted this incredible composite, which he appropriately titled, “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.”

It looks pretty good on the surface, right? Wait till you see the sources he used (below). Keep in mind, these are just jpg files. So all the detailing with shadows and color matching is really impressive. He mixed in a lot of hand done work to make the piece come together. 

Thanks to Jacek for allowing us to feature his work!
