Caught on Camera

Today’s cameras, even front-facing smartphone cameras, capture images in super high-definition, recording colors and shapes that the naked eye can’t even perceive. This experiment takes your selfie and breaks it apart.

Here’s the game. Your portrait is taken with both a high-resolution digital camera as well as a pixelated, black-and-white Game Boy camera. Five colors are selected from the high-quality photograph and placed alongside the vintage-looking shot. It’s up to you to match the colors to what you see.

Can you color in the lines?
